The Tools You’ll Need

To cut a cigar without a cutter, you’ll need a sharp knife and a solid surface to work on. A cutting board or similar flat surface will work perfectly. You’ll also need a lighter to toast the end of the cigar before you smoke it.

Cutting the Cigar

Cutting the cigar is an important step in the process of smoking a cigar. If not done correctly, it can result in a poor smoking experience. There are several ways to cut a cigar, but the most common is to use a cigar cutter.

Cigar cutters come in many different shapes and sizes, but they all essentially work in the same way. To use a cutter, you simply place the blade of the cutter on the head of the cigar and make a clean, straight cut.

If you do not have a cigar cutter, there are other ways to cut a cigar. You can also use a sharp knife or scissors, but you will need to be careful not to damage the cigar. Another option is to bite off the head of the cigar, but this is not recommended as it can cause the tobacco to become loose and difficult to smoke.

Whatever method you use to cut your cigar, be sure to make a clean, straight cut. This will help ensure that you have a good smoking experience.

Lighting the Cigar

Cutting a cigar is an art, and like all art, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. The goal is to make a clean cut that removes the cap without damaging the cigar. A jagged cut will cause the cigar to unravel, and a too deep cut will result in wasted tobacco.

There are several ways to cut a cigar, but the most important thing is to have a sharp blade. A dull blade will crush the cigar instead of cutting it cleanly. A good cutter will have razor-sharp blades that are able to make a clean cut every time.

There are two types of cigar cutters: guillotine and punch. Guillotinecutters have two blades that come together in a V-shape when cutting. Punchcutters make a small hole in the cap of the cigar with a sharp cylindrical blade. Both types of cutters can be used effectively if you have sharp blades and use them properly.

To light a cigar, hold it up to your mouth and suck in gently while drawing on the foot (the open end) of the cigar. You should see the tobacco start to glow red as you draw in air. If necessary, give the foot of the cigar another few gentle puffs until it is evenly lit. Avoid big puffs or inhaling, as this can make the cigar too hot and harsh-tasting.


Now that you know how to cut a cigar without a cutter, you can enjoy your cigars even if you don’t have one handy. Just be careful not to cut too much off the cigar, and you’ll be enjoying your smoke in no time.
