Box Pressed Cigars

A recent post on Reddit posed the question, how do you cut a large ring box pressed (square) cigar with a guillotine cutter?

This is a very valid question, especially when one looks at these cigars, Casa Magna Colorado Gordo Real Box Pressed Cigars are a fairly massive 6 1/4 x 60 size.

Most Cigar cutters hover around a 50 ring size cut, but even for the ones that do go up to a 60 ring gauge you still have the square / circle problem.

square circle

This means that even a 60 ring gauge cutter will not work (even though the cigar is 60 ring gauge!).

We’re not saying a guillotine cutter is bad, in fact it’s one of the most popular types of cigar cutters out there because it does offer a very clean cut. However in this case the box pressed shape forces a fairly unique problem with the cutter.

In this case it might make the most sense to have a punch cutter which will work regardless of the size of the cigar. Again I want to stress that in most cases a popular guillotine type cutter will work perfectly, it’s only real failure point is when one-off situations like above occur.

Any ideas on how to solve the problem mentioned above? Post away!
