Precision-engineered to provide a perfect v-cut, Xikar's VX2 allows you to capture a clean cat's-eye, every time. The VX2's ergonomic, one-handed operation Secure-Lock™ system requires simultaneous pressure to both side release buttons, easily done with your thumb and index finger. Upon release, the spring-loaded cutter snaps open to reveal a built-in 64 ring gauge bowl. Place the cigar cap in the bowl, squeeze the cutter closed, and viola! You're ready to enjoy a perfect draw, minimum effort exerted.
