Would let me buy it because my Gray Gal acct has a Canadian address linked to it, even though my ship to address is American. DOOOH!!!!

Got mine a few days ago and used it last night and had a few others at the herf test it out. It definitely looks and feels cheaper than a Palio and even compared to the Xi I used to have. But, the cut was fantastic, actually smoother than Palio's I've used, although those Palio's are years old compared to the first cut here. Definitely worth the $15 I paid and I'd have a hard time deciding between the cheapest Palio or this for the price difference.

I bought a Palio about 2 months ago and it came apart; just separated while pulling it open. I know it's under warranty and just sent it back. I really loved that while it worked! Bought the X8 with this great deal and it's not as heavy but cuts great, especially the larger ring cigars. My wife doesn't understand my hobby at all and really doesn't understand why I need all the tools. Oh well, I don't understand why she needs so many dam#$# nick-nacks.

I'll definitely look to score one of these on cigar monster or whereever for $15-20 shipped. Seems everyone is really happy with this cutter.

I received mine a couple days ago. It is nice and light and cuts great. I have 2 other XIKAR's and really like all of them. I do want a Palio and will get 1 soon, just to have.

Mine made it Friday. It really is very light, maybe to light weight. I have only used it once and it worked great. Will be a back up and used for torps or such, otherwise using my XV V-cutter.

I've been using mine for a week now. Do I like it better then my Palio? No, but as of right now I like it as much as my Palio. Palio and Xikar make great cigar products with warranties and customer service second to none, so you really can't lose which ever cutter you choose. If it can stay sharp for over 6 years like my first Palio, then I may like it better, only time will tell.

I have been liking my Xikar a lot. It cuts smooth and clean cuts every time. Top notch cutter in my opinion.

I like seeing them side by side like that, man if you are into large RG cigars it is clear which one will be better! Even though I'm not a big RG smoker I still went with the new Xikar, you just can't beat that price.

Yeah I'm not a large ring smoker at all but I'm looking to score that cutter and the Xikar Scissors off Cigarmonster whenever they come up.
