The Octa cigar cutter’s innovative U.S. patent pending design is a combination of fine form and function. The octagonal handles stand out instantly in the design and in addition to fine appearance have two properties which improve the cutting action and feel: they give additional weight and sturdiness for the blades and their relatively wide 6.4mm(1/4 inch) polished surface gives a robust and smooth feel for fingers.
The two uniquely shaped inlays on each side of the cutter are another main feature of the design. These inlays are made of polished premium quality dark mother of pearl as standard feature. This material is rather difficult to obtain and work with but it fits the design perfectly and gives unique colors and patterns to each cutter. We also offer alternative inlay materials in our Limited Edition and bespoke Octa cutters. Customers from United States need to use alternative inlay materials due to customs restrictions.
The blades are made of Damasteel stainless damascus steel with the “Vinland” pattern. The blades undergo a meticulous heat treatment process which consists of several stages and are afterwards sharpened by hand with our unique sharpening method, ensuring ideal sharpness unmatched by any other cigar cutter. These processes are done by our experienced knifesmith.
The handles and body are CNC machined out of high quality durable stainless steel. The polished finish of the body and the blade together with our completely frictionless and durable locking system ensures that the action is as smooth as possible and that the blades stay closed when the cutter is not in use.
