I just noticed that Gotham Cigars has the CAO branded Palio cutter for $19.99. Even with the $8.99 shipping fee that is the lowest price I have seen on a Palio.

I'm a Xikar fan but I know a lot of people like the Palios. I'll see if the bubbas over at Schwab's Pipes and Cigars have one I can try out next time I'm over in the big city.

I loved my Palio too until I got my Xicar V cutter....

Kyle is right though. That's a great price on a Palio cutter.

I just ordered mine. And they do have an option for $5.99 shipping, which with tax brought it in at just over $27.

I have both a Palio and several Xikar. I prefer my Xikar but, if you want a Palio, You can get one on CBID for anywhere from $15 - $25 shipped depending on how the auction goes. I got mine ( camo ) for $23 after shipping. I went ahead and bought a few 5ers with it since it only adds .50 cents for each auction is shipping if you go with weekly

How does that work - you cut a cigar? Pull a .50 cutter out of the basket on the counter and cut a cigar - what will the difference be between that and the $20 palio?

Have you ever tried a Palio? I've never seen a better straight cut - hundreds of uses, still sharp, and not one mangled head. I doubt a .50 cutter would do the same. Just my .02.

$.50 cutters suck. I've never used a Palio but I have a few quality cutters and they by far make a cleaner cut than the run of the mill liquor store/dollar options. I'll use my knife before using a $.50 cutter. However any decent shop will have a nice cutter for you to use.

I use .50 cutters all the time and if you think they can't make a quick, clean, straight cut, you're doing it wrong.

I've had the same .50 cutter in my pocket for at least six months. I use that one twice a day, morning and evening, so that's hundreds of cuts already. Worked just fine this morning, will work just fine tonight. It will work just fine until it doesn't and then I'll pull another one since over the years I have invested in almost a dozen ($5 worth). Just can't turn 'em down at 2 for a dollar.

Sure a Palio cuts straight and clean - but not straighter or cleaner than the cutter in my pocket or the downstairs scissors (a free premium 5 or 6 years ago) or the upstairs scissors ($6). Maybe it's practice, I do smoke and therefore cut more cigars than most.

 So they work just fine then?

Sounds like you are sitting on a gold mine. Might want to invest in those bad boys - buy a bunch, sell them for $1.00, and make out like a bandit. You can include an instructional video with each since we all don't know what the hell we are doing.

If some people want to believe that one needs to spend $20 on a cigar cutter, they can believe it. But I will speak up if someone broadcasts that cheap cutters don't work just fine. Double edge guillotines are easily available at 2 for $1. Pop the cap right off, no bits no splits. Spend the left over $20 on cigars.

For a rare change, I will agree with Frank here. The cheap cutters work just as well as the more expensive versions....for as long as they last. I keep a cheap guillotine cutter in the pickup for those times I forget my Xikar. It's worked every time in spite of the abuse it's been through.

However, I don't think the shop giveaway cutters will last as long as the better versions. Any port in a storm works for me though.

There are good cheap cutters but $.50? Every week there are cheaper cutters on auction that go for a dollar and those are usually pretty good. When I think of an actual $.50 cutter I'm thinking of the thin single razor blade looking guillotine.

The top 2 are both Xikar and work like a dream, plus the V-cut serves as a cigar rest. The action is very smooth and precise on these as well.

The bottom 2 are useless.

The 2 to the right work great however the action isn't as smooth and they are also more susceptible to damage. I've dropped one similar to the green one and it broke into pieces and I've also had the finger loops break off before. The blades do dull faster as well.

There is NO SUCH THING as off topic here on the Geeks! Everything we choose to say is on-topic no matter where the discussion leads! Part of the fun here is following the convoluted illogic of where some of these posts take us!
