Cuban Crafters Revolucion 3 blade scissors
I recently placed an order online for a pair of Cuban Crafters cigar scissors. The particular vendor I ordered from on Amazon shipped the wrong item and I ended up with the Revolucion scissors instead. I figured why not give them a go. This is one wicked looking pair of scissors, with their 3 stainless steel blades. They do feature a wide handle design that is great for larger handed individuals like myself. What really catches they attention about these is the 3 blades and how they mesh together when making a cut. When you open the handles the blades move to the outside of the circle and upon squeezing the blades together all 3 blades move together at the same time. The blades are designed to be self-sharpening and require little maintenance and care. They come with a small brush to assist in the removal of any bits of tobacco left in the blades when clipping the cap. I found that these seem to work best on the smaller ring gauge cigars (below 50). It doesn't do it every cut but I would say probably 30 percent of the time there is a small protrusion of filler left bulging from the cut. It's almost as if there is a "dead spot" where the blades meet up to finish the cut. It is certainly one of the most unique looking cutters I have come across and does make a decent cut. You can never have enough cigar toys so I will hold on to this one for now. It lists for about 25 bucks on the Cuban Crafters website and does carry a lifetime warranty. If you want a very unique and eye catching cutter or just a conversation piece, this cutter is right up your alley. www.CubanCrafters.com for more information on Cuban Crafters line of accessories and inventory of cigars.
