  • $ 377.77

Description: A nice old small size cigar cutter. The cutter is made of 14 karat gold housing and has a steel hinged cutting element. The cutter has a loop, which appears to be also made of gold, to hang from a chain. The cutting mechanism which is pushed down to cut the cigar's end or tip is made of steel and sticks to a magnet. The edge of the cutting mechanism is triangular and the mechanism has a round domed circle on top (looks like gold-does not stick to a magnet) to push on when cutting the cigar's tip. This cutter is for small cigars since the round opening in the front where you insert the cigar has a diameter of ~7/16". Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.
