Default The differences between Xikar models

I don't know if you guys are aware of this, but ...

I wanted a Xikar cutter to go with my new Palio from Cigarmony.

Lo and behold, Mark has put up a page answering the very question I had, namely: What are the differences between the different models of cutters?

Link Here

The page is short, sweet, and to the point, and helped me make a decision.

Thanks, Mark!

I always wondered about that...well until I got a palio than I didn't care anymore. But thanks for the info, Mark is awesome.

nice, but I disagree with the ring 58 max, I have cut several ring 60 cigars with my XI2

I would love to see pics of the new Xikar cutter in use, they look awesome.

Ask and ye shall receive. I have an Xikar Xi3 Spectra. It's heavy and if I was to do a full cut (rather than a slice) the maximum is 58. I can slice a 60 with no problem however.

Ah.. you mean the UltraSlims? Ya.. that one does look kinda awkward to use as there's no finger holes.

I agree - it does look a bit awkward. I'd like to hear from some others (or try one) before I got one.

Heh, I got a Palio and a Xikar xi2 the same week; they actually both arrived the same day. Now I can do a head-to-head comparison.
