Screwpop Cigar Punch — accessory review (plus giveaway)

Screwpop Cigar Punch

We’ve all been there. You’re just about to enjoy a fine cigar and a cold beer when you realize you’ve forgotten to bring a cigar cutter and bottle opener… what a buzzkill! In the past, you’d need to carry around a separate cigar cutting tool and bottle opener, adding a significant amount of bulk to your already overflowing pockets. Now there’s a new solution: a combination cigar punch and bottle opener that clips right onto your keychain called the Screwpop Cigar Punch. The folks at Screwpop recently sent one to me to find out what I thought about it.

The Screwpop Cigar Punch is really a great idea. It’s so convenient to clip it onto your keychain and just forget about it, knowing that you’ll never again be in a situation where you’re unable to cut a cigar or open a beer. Is it my preferred method of cutting my cigars? No, but it’s an excellent backup for those emergency scenarios in which you might otherwise be unprepared. And for less than $10, that’s an insurance policy anyone can afford.
