Default I wish Palio's didn't Look so Cheap

Seriously though, the thing cut's great but damn it looks and feels cheap. I wonder why they cant make a all stainless or something. I would love to have this blade in a nice heavy frame. What do you guys think about their look?

I think the simple look is just fine. I don't think it looks or feels cheap at all.

I personally think they look good, and the weight is something I like. I had a stainless Xikar and it was too heavy in my pocket for daily carry

I am also tired of this cutter coming off it's tracks. It feels like it's sticking too when I open it. I cleaned it out numerous times.

The manufacturer stands behind them and will fix or replace it free. The owner happens to be a member here.

I find it curious your first two posts here are to rip on Palio. Smells of an agenda to me.....apologies if I am wrong.

I'm not concerned with it's looks. You can't buy a better cutter.As far as it sticking I wash mine with Dawn in super hot water seems to do the trick.

I have had mine for almost two years and never had it come off the tracks, so maybe its a defective piece. I would take it back to the store because they will replace it on the spot, no hassle.

I think you can take these to any retailer that sells them and exchange with no questions asked. at least that's what I heard. Mine has cut hundreds of sticks and is still as sharp as the first.

I've had mine for about a year now, maybe more. I still love it. I like the look, the feel and the job it does.

Default Re: I wish Palio's didn't Look so Cheap

I love my Palios I have used them exclusively for over a year and converted many BOTL's as well as run two group buys for them. I like them so much I accidently gave my last on away to a guy I was herfing with that really liked it after he tried it. Lucky for me a great BOTL hooked me up with a new one. I have cut probably 1000 cigars with Palio and never had a single problem or bad cut.

But what the hell do I know I am just a dumbass Canadian

ok while were talking palios anyone else rest their finger on the cap while they make the cut? Seems I always get strange looks when I do it but I haven't been cut or made a bad cut yet. This is even more fun while driving!

I have a stainless cutter manufactured by a name brand outfit that's junk. Pure, simple junk. But it looks great, it's nice and hefty, and the name alone (starts with a "C") is guaranteed to impress people. Really sexy.

I'll trade you for a Palio! Seriously.

Well your wrong about your conspiracy theory . I don't care for Xikar's either. I just wish their were more than 2 cutters that are very good for under 50$. I just want something different.

Default Re: I wish Palio's didn't Look so Cheap

I have 2 Palio's. Don't care for them myself. There does seem to be a learning curve to using them correctly. I had a Cuban Crafter perfection cutter and still find myself reaching for that one first.

Palio is a really good cutter a lot of B/SOTL reach for them first.

Like what you use, use what you like.

Just my worth.

Peace

I like my Palio. I think it looks simple, but I like that about it. Beautiful simplicity...why screw it up?
