Default Looking For Cutter That Can Handle 60+ RG Cigars

Does anyone own, or know of, a decent Guillotine Style Cigar Cutter, that works for 60+ RG Cigars? I would like a nice quality cutter, but I do not want to pay crazy prices.

I have tried a couple of cheapy cutters that say they can handle 60 RG, but in reality they cannot. They are maybe 55/56 RG at best.

The Xikar X8 is really good quality and can handle some fairly large cigars. The literature says it can handle 70 rg, I've never used mine on anything larger than 54-ish, so I can't say for certain, but there is a lot of room to go larger even when I cut a cigar of that size.

I have used cigar scissors for larger rings. Xikar makes a 5 in 1 tool

Great choice and only about $ 20-$30.

Never bought one but a local B&M carries a double guillotine cutter brand called "The Big Daddy" for well under $10. No doubt available online, if you don't want to come to Party Source in northern Kentucky.

Thanks for all the ideas guys!

I have ordered a VERTIGO BY LOTUS BIG BOY 64-RING GAUGE CIGAR CUTTER for only $6 online. I have been told that they are very worthy for the price. I find out pretty soon!
