All of these cigar cutters are equipped with double blades, which help in precision cutting of cigar caps. Other than the price difference, there are a few factors that decide their edge between each another.

The XIKAR Xi1 cutter has a lifetime warranty, as does the Top Teng Cigar Cutter, while the Zino Double Bladed Cigar Cutter only offers a two-year warranty. Also, the Sahara Sailor cutter is versatile and can cut any kind of cigar, and can accommodate most sizes of cigars up to a 56 ring.

The Zino Double Bladed Cutter also has a 56-ring gauge, while the Top Teng Cigar Cutter, on the other hand, has 60-ring gauge. Let us take a look some of the details of these cigar cutters.


The Zino Double Bladed Cutter is a favorite among cigar smokers. By the look of it and the quality of materials used in its construction, it speaks nothing less than a great quality cigar cutter. This cigar cutter has been used by many cigar aficionados, including some of the greatest Hollywood actors.

The Top Teng Cigar Cutter is a classical type of cutter classified as a guillotine. For some cigar aficionados, the guillotine style is a very reliable cutter, and an indispensable cigar tool.
