Xikar Xi3 Carbon Cutter

Xikar Xi3 Carbon Cutter

With my free time stretched a little thin these last couple of weeks, I wanted to find a way to incorporate the usual write-up with a video. The hitch was finding a way that wouldn’t take the usual amount of time to accomplish such a feat. After giving it some consideration, I thought a product review with a little video might be a nice change of pace. What I have for you is a look at the Xikar Xi3 Carbon

Accessory Review: Vector Plug Cutter

A few years ago when I started smoking cigars, I always had trouble opening up the head of my smokes. Regardless of how sharp or how new my cutter was, I always seemed to get a cigar that unraveled on me. Not realizing at the time that I was clipping far too much off of my cigar, I decided to change gears and give a plug cutter a try.

The very next visit to my local cigar shop included a …

Accessory Review: Xikar Axia Lighter

Back in July, Brian, Jerry, and I were fortunate enough to receive Press Passes to the IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas. While there, we got to speak with a number of people about a number of new products. One of those people included Andy from Xikar.

Andy and I spoke a little bit about the Defiance review I did a little while back and he asked if I would be interested in doing some product reviews as well. …

A look at Cigar Press Magazine

Magazine: Cigar Press
Publisher: Thor Nielson
Editor: Thor Nielson
Published: Quarterly
Subscription Price: $19.80 per year
News Stand Price: $4.95

Back in July of 2007 I came across a new cigar publication called Cigar Press. At the time I think they were on their very first issue and it seemed very interesting. The magazine was not available in the form of subscription and had to be picked up from a local tobacconist.

None of my local cigar shops currently carried …

Book Review: A Passion For Cigars by Joel Sherman

On a blistering hot Sunday afternoon I felt like having a drink and a cigar to pass the time. On my way out the door I picked up my copy of Nat Sherman’s: A Passion for Cigars and made my way out into the front yard. I made myself comfortable in the shade of a Walnut tree and started my peaceful afternoon.

A Passion For Cigars was published in 1996 by Andrews McMeel Publishing. The book is written by Joel …

Palio Cutter Review

The product featured for this Accessory Review is the Palio guillotine cutter. This particular model is the standard black body with the older black emblems. I have had this cutter since sometime in early 2006 and have used it fairly regularly since my purchase.

I picked up this cutter in a group buy on Club Stogie and paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $25.00 (shipping included). Included with the cutter was a black sheath with an impression of the …

Cigar Bobken Cup Holder Ashtray

I know what you’re thinking. You wondering what the heck a “Bobken” is. The only answer I can find is that it’s the name of the cup holder ashtray that I’m about to review. But still, it sounds really familiar doesn’t it? That could be because you’re thinking about the old English minced oath “Odds Bodkins”. Confused? Excellent, let’s get on with the review.

The subject of todays review was an impulse buy that didn’t wind up taking up permanent …

Xikar MTX Cigar Scissors

Xikar MTX Cigar Scissors

Yep, I’m a little late today in posting my roll-of-the-dice Saturday cigar post. (It’s for a good reason, I assure you, but I won’t tell you why, because it definitely won’t help my cause out at all.) But the good news is that I have something a little different for you this week. Instead of an extra cigar review, or a bit of odd news, I’m going to review my brand new Xikar MTX cutter!

If you’ve been watching Walt’s …

Odor Eliminator Comparison


A few weeks ago, I received an email asking me how I kept the odor of smoke to a minimum in my basement while smoking. My answer was that I use a typical box fan in one window to pull air across the room from another open window. As the air travels across the room it pulls the lingering smoke with it and the fan exhausts it out of the room.…
