Unique, cutting edge design.
The Xikar Xi3 features a unique teardrop shape and double guillotine action that give the powerful cutting ability in one simple squeezing motion.
The Xi series is designed to be both comfortable in the hand and well-balanced for a perfect cut. All Xi Cutters feature 440C stainless steel blades with a Rockwell HRC 57 rating: they will cut a 54 ring gauge cigar in half. Depending on how much cap you cut, they will cut up to a 60 ring gauge cigar.
