XIKAR's iconic teardrop shape cutter has been paired with strikingly beautiful handles crafted from coral found on the ocean floor. These Xi3 Coral Cutters are the ultimate accessory for the distinguished cigar smoker who wants a quality cut and a strikingly beautiful look. The natural coral handles are crafted by hand and assembled by Scrimshaw Artist, Rick "HutcH" Hutchings. No two are alike.
*Apple Coral is stabilized luscious red sponge coral, typically imported from Taiwan and Indonesia. It is naturally a dark brick red, but red dye is sometimes added to stabilize the resin. This type of coral is mainly found in the Pacific or Indian Oceans.
XIKAR's Coral cutters are enclosed in a luxury display case for showcasing the unique items.
All Xi3 cutters feature the same unique, ergonomic teardrop shape and double-guillotine action that gives the Xi1 and the Xi2 such powerful cutting ability in one simple squeezing motion.
Xi cutter blades are made of high quality 440 stainless steel with an HRC of 57.
All Xi3 cutters are the same ring gauge: 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.
*The coral pieces used to make these cutters are found on the ocean floor, broken off from the surf and storm surge. They are collected using sound practices and techniques, and are no longer part of a living coral reef.
