Random quote: Why pay $100 on a therapy session when you can spend $25 on a cigar? Whatever it is will come back; so what, smoke another one. - Raul Julia

Good to hear! I always bring a cutter, I don't like to precut due to potential damage in transit after the cut. But understandable that you didn't want to bother. I might be buying a soto… I am not sure though since I don't travel that much and might just bring a few disposibles, now that I know you can fly with them.

So I thought I would revive this thread as I am about to fly for a short trip. I am doing a carry-on only, so I am facing the same questions. And I am a hair away from purchasing the SOTO Pocket Torch mentioned above. But what I am going to do instead is bring cedar spills. I mean, you can find matches ANYWHERE. And so I think it a perfect solution. I don't think there is any danger of confiscation. I will get 25 spills for less than the torch(or 50 for the same price as the torch). I love cigars...but I won't be smoking 25 over a weekend. So I will have some left over for other times and other trips. I may even have some spare veneer to break into spills as well and may not have to purchase. Or for 7 bucks I can get 5 small sheets from Amazon...

I am more concerned about my cigar cutter. I do have a couple cheap cutters (but they cut like....well you know...) I am just so used to the beautiful cuts I get from my Palio's and my Colibri V Cut. I have a couple punches that are also key rings so I will try to bring those. Is it worth the risk of losing a Palio (I mean I can replace it pretty easily from CBid for around $10)??? I don't believe I will bring my cigar reamer...I think that would be taken 100%.

Not so worried about the cigars. As I mentioned above, I have several sizes. I will probably bring the 15 count and a bag with a couple coffins. (I want a selection and have extras for others.)

Pete, it is always a tough call for me. I tend to error on the side of being safe and not losing my favorite cutter by not taking it. I see it as a gamble, never bet more than you could afford to lose.

I started buying Djeep lighters off Amazon because the Fuente ones look cool and are cheap in multiple packs. Fits the disposable bill with a little more style than a Bic if you are into that kinda thing. I think the flame is a bit higher as well. Once I started buying though, I use them a good bit normally. Kind of like a match, the soft flame forces me to slow down and savor the first few moments of my stick rather than torch it. Good for travel, good for home, good overall.

 Yeah...I know...I mean I won't be able to replace my Palio for what I bought it for...lol  People on CBid have caught on...LOL  I will be able to replace somewhat cheaply.  So not necessarily worried about cost....I think it is more of the principle of the thing and not wanting to risk dealing with the aggravation...LOL  Plus...I love my Palio...There is a sentimental aspect to it...LMAO!!!!

 Like you I was stocking up on Palios on C-Bid.  Was getting for under $15 (the unbranded ones), can still find some deals

I fly all of the time with a xikar cutter no issues, they dont even bat an eye. They do if and when i bring a torch. So bics it is. But no worries on a cutter. The one issue I have witnessed were cigar scissors on a multi-tool which is a no-no.

I was worried about the cutter too.  My solution was just to clip the cigars at home before I left, that way no worries about my cutter being taken and not getting my balls busted

The soto lighter torch/case really worked great though, I can vouch for it.  It allows you to just bring a regular bic lighter with you, or just buy a cheap lighter while you're on vacation and VOILA!

I fly with a cheap cutter in my suitcase, usually placed inside a shoe, with a sock hiding it. Hasn't been an issue yet...yet!
