Xikar will introduce the VX2, the latest metal v-cut to join Xikar’s cutter family. The VX2 is engineered to provide a deeper wedge notch than the company’s existing VX V-Cutter.
The new VX2 V-Cut offers ergonomic, one –handed operation utilizing the all new Secure-Lock system, requiring simultaneous pressure to both side release buttons, to ensure the spring loaded cutter remains secure when not in use. The precision engineered depth of the VX2 V-Cut is built to maximize draw without cutting too deep and breaching the cigar cap, causing the cigar to unravel. The inverted blade of this new v-cutter provides a 90° cut angle, specifically engineered to cut deeper into large RG cigars while also being able to maintain the structural integrity of smaller RG cigar caps. The contoured back of the cutter’s body provides a cigar rest, if no other is at hand.
“This VX2 V-Cut was developed due to demand from our consumers in the cigar industry” said Kurt Van Keppel, CEO and Founder of XIKAR. “Fans of this notch cut prefer a deeper cut to enhance the draw of the cigar, a challenge to achieve without causing damage to the structure of the cigar. After meticulous engineering, we were able to develop a 90° blade angle on the VX2, which caters to this deeper cut request without limiting cigar ring gauges on which this cutter can be used” Van Keppel continued.
The VX2 V-Cut will begin shipping Fall 2017.
