Here's a nifty new product I stumbled upon a few days ago, "The Perfdog™" Cigar Perforator fromCigarPerforator.com.
Unlike classic cigar cutters, The Perfdog punches 5 small holes in the cigar's cap to allow air flow.
Over the last week I've tested The Perfdog on between 20 - 25 cigars. While I've only tested The Perfdog on parejo shaped cigars, the video below shows how to perforate a torpedo. I can go into an entire page of details about how to use The Perfdog, but it's faster and easier for you just to watch the video below.
However, I can tell you The Perfdog worked great for me--after a short learning curve-- and it hasn't damaged one wrapper. It didn't take long for this to become my cutter, or should I say, perforator of choice. The only thing I'm unsure of is how long The Perfdog will stay sharp. Looking at the spikes and their small diameter, it looks like this tool will remain effective much longer than standard cutter blades, but that's just my guess.
Check out CigarPerforator.com for more details, they also offer custom laser etching!

The Perfdog offers an alternative to cutting your cigar with a traditional blade or punch cutter. Similar in approach to a punch cutter, the Cigar Perforator employs a series of sharp pins that are pushed into the base of a cigar, creating five small holes. This allows you to draw from the cigar easily without any bits of tobacco ending up in your mouth. The Perfdog is small, portable and tough. Made from stainless steel and aluminum alloy it is available in a wide range of colors and can be custom etched with your logo. I have tried other non-traditional cigar cutter/punch alternatives in the past and they always fell short. Either they didn’t produce an clean cut or the hole quickly became tarred up during the smoking process. This is not the case with the Perfdog.
The smart design and attention to detail ensures that the openings are clean and sufficient. The Perfdog also allows you to smoke more of your favorite cigar since you aren’t removing a significant portion of the cap. Made in the USA, the Perfdog sports a lifetime warranty so you can by proudly and with confidence. The Perfdog enhances your smoking experience by allowing opening up your cigar easily and cleanly, allowing you to get the perfect draw every time. It’s a great alternative to traditional cutters, it is well made and well thought out. The Perfdog works well and enhances your smoking experience. Perf & Herf!
When we first were introduced to the Cigar Perforator it had gimmick written all over it. We actually put it aside and did not try for two months. We recently used them on several cigars and, to our surprise, WE LOVED THEM. We thought it would tear up the cigars, but if you follow the instructions, the process really works. They yield a beautiful draw for your favorite cigar. We will carry these with us all the time!
