Description
XI302MYC: Xi3 Cutter - Mayan X Cloisonne
XIKAR
 
XIKAR's NEW Mayan Collection Cloisonne Cutter is a spectacular portrait of the ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects. Cloisonne first developed in the Ancient Near East and now XIKAR has created a collectible piece for life.

Mayan architecture spans many thousands of years. The most dramatic and easily recognizable as Mayan are the stepped pyramids from the Terminal Pre-classic period and beyond. Many consider Maya art of their Classic Era (c. 250 to 900 AD) to be the most sophisticated and beautiful of the ancient New World. We have only hints of the advanced painting of the classic Maya; mostly what has survived are pottery and other Maya ceramics, and a building at Bonampak holds ancient murals that survived by chance. The Mayan culture excelled in many different fields, and testaments of their achievements are found throughout modern history. XIKAR has a strong affiliation with the Mayan culture which is illustrated in this great collection of lighters and cutters.

Cloisonne jewelry has been around for many years. The technique originated in the ancient Near East and gradually spread to other parts of the world. Chinese cloisonné is the best known enamel cloisonné. The simple elegance of color and pattern combined with a unique design make cloisonne pieces some the most sought after jewelry.; Each piece is carefully made to match perfectly in design, color, pattern, and feel. 

Cloisonne enamel jewelry is created with an ancient metalworking technique perfected in the Orient. The Enamel is made of glass crushed into powder and covered with other precious metals then placed onto an enameled surface and held together using intense heat under fire. XIKAR has designed a cloisonne cutter that resembles the elegance and beauty of the original cloisonne jewelry.

All Xi cutters are the same ring gauge: they will cut a 54 ring gauge cigar in half. Depending on how much cap you cut, they will cut up to a 58 ring gauge cigar.

XIKAR CUTTERS
Smell a freshly cut cigar as you snap your XIKAR® cutter into its locked position. The spring-loaded, double guillotine design gives the cutter feel and performance like no other.
A button release mechanism snaps the two super-hard stainless steel blades into the open position.

Many cigar cutters leave trailing pieces of tobacco on the lip of the cigar. Others don't cut enough of the tip to allow an even, smooth draw. Almost none of the cigar cutters on the market will accommodate the large cigar sizes preferred in the USA. Like a proper wine glass enhances a good wine, an excellent cigar cutter promotes the full performance of fine cigars.

Xi cutter blades are made of high quality 440 stainless steel with an HRC of 57.

Why would a cigar connoisseur who spends $10 to $35 per cigar use anything but the best cutter? Lack of the proper tools and knowledge prevents it!
