I acquired a very cool Zino cutter so I've been using that, but I do still like the look and feel of a punched stogie. Just has to be a big enough ring gauge to justify it.

I agree totally so I just punch it multiple times, basically to the same area as I'd do with cutting, just with a punch for the neater edges.
This is it with only the one punch in it

And this is it punched a few more times. I just start from the middle and work outwards nibbling away with the cutting edge of the punch from the centre outwards.


Having the shoulders still on makes it feel a load nicer when it's on my lips taking a draw.

Depends on the RG, larger ones I like to punch, but most of the time I cut

I have been cutting cc's and punching nc's because the nc's have a looser draw. Some times I punch a cc with a larger rg also.

I have been punching latley. But Sometimes I really like my cigars to breath so I cut. I currently use a Magnum 44 bullet that has been turned into a punch. Its pretty cool, but I want to buy the xikar wolf because it has two punch sizes...

For years I was always a cutter. Last year I tried a punch for the first time and it's good. Much less tobacco particles in the teeth and no annoying caps unwrapping.

I'm about 50/50. I usually punch on-the-go.
