Cutters & Accessories: Les Fines Lames Le Petit Cigar Cutter Ziricote
Product Number: 001-317-0243
Meaning "fine blades" in French, Les Fines Lames cigar cutters live up to their name, offering unparalleled quality, evocative aesthetics, and practical reliability. Designed in Marseilles and fashioned in Thiers, the French capital of cutlery, Les Fines Lames cigar knives are 100% made in France and combine the utility of a pocket knife with the attributes of a cigar cutter, its dual functionality making for the perfect every-day-carry, with uses that extend beyond cigar cutting. The 14C28N stainless steel blade ensures a perfect cut every time, and the lever action allows for convenient, one-handed opening, à la traditional Piedmont folder knives from Italy.
This Le Petit model is slightly smaller than the original, becoming Les Fines Lames' most popular model thanks to its light weight and compact size. Only four-and-a-half inches in length and ultra-slim in width, the Le Petit fits easily into a pocket or travel humidor, while still being able to cut a 58 ring gauge cigar in half, even accommodating up to a 70 ring gauge cigar, depending how much cap is cut. For best results when using the Les Fines Lames Le Petit, make sure the blade's logo is facing the cigar when cutting. This ensures proper contact with the knife's edge and a proper cut every time.
Lastly, the Le Petit cigar knife features a lanyard loop at the end of the handle, and Les Fines Lames offers a variety of handle materials from exotic hardwoods to pristine metals, with this Le Petit utilizing ziricote, a Central American wood similar to bocote.
