Can someone recommend a durable cigar cutter?
I don't much care for looks, I am interested in function and durability.

I've owned several and the Palio has been the best and most reliable, hands down.
These are horrible times and all sorts of horrible people are prospering, but we must never let this disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to annoy and hinder them at every turn.

I suggest the Xikar cigar cutter. It is easily the best I have owned. The real key is to make sure the cutter is tight and sharp.

Mine's a Christmas gift from a some years back -- a Xikar STK -- and I've been very happy with it. I've also got a Cuban Crafters "credit card" double guillotine cutter I keep in the car. Both are guaranteed for life -- I've had zero problems with either.
A good friend has a Palio, which is a fine cigar cutter as well, still working as intended after years of regular use.

I bought a Palio a while back on Puff Daddies recommendation but it didn't last very long.
A good friend liked it as well as I did and "borrowed" it permanently.
He called a couple weeks ago and when I mentioned it he assured me it's still working fine.

+1 on Puff Daddy ...
I've got two Palios and two Xikars ... both work well, but I use the Palios at least 90% of the time because I like them better ... BUT, the Xikar has a warranty that is second to none ... still, Palio is my choice.

Resurrecting this thread. I bought a Palio and a Cuban Crafter Perfect cutter each this past week. They should arrive before the weekend and I'll be able to do some testing.
I also have had an older Cuban Crafters dual-blade guillotine cutter from maybe 10 years ago that still works fine (granted I don't smoke daily). I also more recently bought a Cigar.com Colibri cutter that is just ok. It tends to smash more than cut. It probably just needs sharpening. The two things going for it as I see it are the locking mechanism and the large ring gauge.
Based on discussions and reviews around the web, the Palio will probably be my go-to cutter, when all is said and done. What did you end up getting Smokey?

I use a pocket knife and it has always worked pretty well for me.

I know you're asking for a cutter, but I'll throw this out there, I love using a punch. They just seem to work well for me.

I liked the Xikar I had that grew legs but it's also the only decent cutter I've really used, other than that I usually use the freebies or cheapos from cigar shops.
