What is your determine factor as to when to use a V cutter over a guillotine or punch and can you recommend a good V cutter. I like the looks of both Colibrí and Xikar.

For curiosity reasons. Why do you want to use a V-Cut over a straight cut?

Really just to have a choice Kent. I thought that with some of the 5’ers I bought I might try a V cut on one or two of the sticks to see the difference.

My Xicar v-cutter was my go-to for years, but lately I've turned to the regular guillotine cutter. For some time I'd use the v-cutter, and if the draw wasn't quite right, or if there was tar build up or other issues, I'd use the guillotine cutter and keep on going.

^^^ I tried several V and Punches but always go back to by Xikar guilltoines, the small cut I get with a V or punch both seem to concentrate the tars into the smaller area. My cigars always seem to smoke better with a straight cut. JMO

I like the v cut on belicosos and torpedoes etc...You cannot go wrong with the Xikar...let me repeat that....you cannot go wrong with the Xikar...I personally have a Colibri...The Colibri V Cut is a great cutter. I bought it over the Xikar for 2 reasons...Price.....and I really liked the deeper cut...I usually stick with a straight cut with most other shapes...But I am very happy with my Colibri
