This is what I use for a cutter. Xikar X8. Xikar has a good warrantee with their products too so you can send it in if it gets dull.

Pretty much have always used XiKar cutters. Almost any style works from them. I've been using a Calibri single jet since forever. Calibri's make about the best lighters,well worth the money. Model # on the bottom of my lighter is QTR 6900. Bought the cutter online and the lighter in Amsterdam at Hajenius....look it up if you've never heard of the place. Also got a few BK 52's and 54's there for a nice price.

I have a triple jet and I would not recommend them. The reason why is because the diameter of the cigar doesn't light up evenly (from my experience) with a triple jet. One side always gets lit just a tiny bit more, and when you draw through the cigar, it becomes more and more uneven. I'd go with a double jet. Not too big that you can't light a Robusto or something small, but big enough that you could like a Churchill up just fine.

Anyone into AB Prensado Churchills? They've become my staple now. Just an amazing cigar all around.

I love my tripple jet. I bought it at The Tobacco Barn in Mission Viejo, CA. I asked about lighters thinking he would recommend something in the 70+ range, but instead he sold me a $20 tripple jet lighter. It had a full warrantee and if it ever broke all I would have to do is bring it back and he would give me a new one. Theres a nice little mirror in the cap so you can check how the cigar is lighting too. I've had it for about a year now and had no issues at all.

This is it. JetLine New York

I haven't personally used any of those, but they all look nice. The humidor is a bit small, but I guess it just depends on how many sticks you wanna store at one time.

Beautiful. Really like that one. Where did you get that?

I need a better picture of mine, the orange isn't that washed out.

edit: This is more accurate

I got mine from cigarsinternational.com.... I think it was only like 100 bucks or something... For the price, i really love the way it looks, and it holds close to 100 or so cigars pretty comfortably.
