Refinishing a Stinky Cigar Ashtray

Refinishing a Stinky Cigar Ashtray

If you’re like me, you have several Stinky Cigar ashtrays around your house.  I love them.  They are deep, can hold a lot of cigar butts and ash, and are well built.  I bought one of the new more decorative versions last year that came out recently.  I choose the antique hammered copper because, well, it looked really cool.  After several months of using it, the inside started to rust really badly.  It formed some thick rusty crust all around …

Perfecto Cigar Holder

Perfecto Cigar Holder

It’s been a little while since we posted an cigar accessory, and since I’m having some allergy-related issues this week, it seems like the time is right. Today I take a look at the Perfecto Cigar Holder. It’s a gadget that’s billed to be the ultimate cigar holding solution for the outdoors in a wide range of environments, from the grill to the golf cart. Let’s check it out.

The Good Points
Simply stated, the job of the Perfecto Cigar …

Western Humidor Caliber 4R Hygrometer

Western Humidor Caliber 4R Hygrometer

This week, I’m taking a look at a humidor staple that isn’t made of tobacco: The Western Humidor Caliber 4R hygrometer. Ordinarily, we don’t talk about hygrometers very much, because, let’s face it, they’re necessary but boring. Or at least that was my opinion until I spotted the Caliber 4R in the Cigar Oasis booth at IPCPR 2012. It’s essentially a digital hygrometer that looks a great deal like the traditional round analog, along with a few colorful updates. …

Vertigo Intimidator Lighter

Vertigo Intimidator Lighter

A few weeks back I received a surprise package from Steven over at Lighters Direct. The package contained four Vertigo lighters for me to try out.

Prior to receiving the package I hadn’t had any experience with the Vertigo line. Since then I’ve learned that it is a budget line, of sorts, produced by Lotus. Lighters are said to run $30 and under. The Vertigo Intimidator Lighter runs $27.95 from Lighters Direct.

When I first started playing around …

Upcoming Lighter Reviews Courtesy of Lighters Direct

Upcoming Lighter Reviews Courtesy of Lighters Direct

Last week I received an email from our friend Steven at Lighters Direct. If you aren’t familiar with Lighters Direct, you really should be as they are one of the longest running sponsors we’ve had here on Stogie Review.

The email from Steven was a heads up that a few lighters were headed my way and that I should expect them with the next day or two. Inside the package I would find a couple of Vertigo products that …

Accessory Review: Xikar Mayan Table Top Light and Xikar VX Metal V Cutter

Accessory Review:  Xikar Mayan Table Top Light and Xikar VX Metal V Cutter

I’ve had several people ask me to do some accessory reviews, especially of items I use regularly. I thought that was a good idea and something that seems neglected by us and many of our other brother and sisters of the leaf reviewers. For the first review, I had to use two of my most used items. The first being the Xikar Table Top light in the Mayan design and the other their VX Metal V cutter.

The Table Top …

Screwpop Cigar Punch — accessory review (plus giveaway)

Screwpop Cigar Punch — accessory review (plus giveaway)

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

Commonwealth Cedar Spills

Commonwealth Cedar Spills

Last year at the Tweetup in Chattanooga, I met Thomas Person, President of Commonweath Cedar Spills. His company specializes in the creation of cedar strips that can be used to light cigars. But they’re more than simple strips of wood. Each spill is tapered from a thicker handle to a smaller bulbous lighting end, and can be customized in a number of different ways. (The ones I’ve been using have a little flame logo at the lighting end, and the …

Three Accessories

Three Accessories

With Christmas around the corner I thought I’d share three accessories that I’ve found to be just as essential as my lighter and cutter. If you are a loyal reader of Week in Smoke or if you use the Hewitt Method (you just look at the pictures) you’ve probably noticed them in the background. Some of you may not think these are ‘practical’ accessories and thats fine. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t think so either at first until …

Havana Saver

Havana Saver

Welcome boys and girls to a short, down and dirty review of the Havana Saver. I was given this accessory while Walt and I were at Famous Smoke shop for Cigarnival 2012. This is a draw poker plus. When I say plus I mean some of them have a golf ball marker and you can use it as a stand to hold your cigar while on the links or just at home gardening. These have a MSRP of …
