For me it's a real issue. We all have a smoking draw resistance preference whether we think about it or not.

When you find a particular cigar type of box that has a very loose draw using the puch is a nice way of "adjusting it down" to closer to your normal resistance preference.

I'm a cutter.

But I do have a punch, just in case.

Anyone do the V cut at all? Ever?

I'm a cutter or a pincher (cutting/pinching with my fingernails). Don't remember the last time I used a punch. Not sure if I have one anymore, either.

I've been pinching more since I heard you and Pete Johnson talking about it - had never thought about it before then. It's pretty darn effective!

I'm the same way, very seldom will I smoke bigger than a 50RG, but when I do. I always punch, otherwise it's cut with my trust Palio.

Punch is always on my key ring, so it's usually out of necessity that I punch rather than cut.

I ALWAYS punch the Litto Gomez style chisels, one punch to each side

Cut. I honestly haven't used a punch cut in probably three years or so. I do wish I had one of those badass Boston V-cutters those. They have one at the Davidoff on madison, it reeks of awesome.

Nearly always use my pocket knife. That way I can truly control the size of the opening, thus the draw.

That and I lost all my cutters. LOL

I used to v cut every torpedo (and only torpedoes) I smoked. I know.....weird.

Now it's 99% Palio. I'll punch if I smoke a larger RG cigar.......which is very rarely.

For what ever reason I mix it up all the time. Punch at the B+M and use my Palio in the car, V-cut sometimes at the house. I even bite the cap off in a pinch.

Cut if it's a smaller RG but I will use a V-cutter for reg sized cigs if available.

I've only used a punch a few times but it never really felt right.

Prefer the cutter!
