Cigars 101: Don Josè's Tools of the trade

Tools of the Trade is where I give you info / reviews on different cigar related accessories. Being that xmas is just around the corner I thought the first one may as well be a stocking stuffer for you to forward onto your friends and family so they can get you something you actually want this year!

Travel Humidors

I love my travel humidors, its so easy to throw a couple of cigars in so you don't have to decide what you will want to smoke until smoking time and they are water tight and crush proof so there is no chance of damaging your sticks! The Cigar locker is the pick of the bunch for larger storage i.e trips away etc but the 5 count is perfect for your day to day use!

Boveda Butler (Smart Sensor)

This thing is great and super affordable too! For me it doesn't replace a Hygrometer but its damn cool to be able to check on your humidors temp and humidity from the couch and getting alerts is awesome!

XIKAR Xi2 Cutter

The last cutter you will ever need. Ok, maybe not but these are amazing, they stay sharp for damn near ever and are a perfect cut. You can also table cut with them for a great depth guide. They come in a range of decretive designs too so should be able to tell yours apart at parties!

I have been through more lighters than I like to even think about. That was until I got one of these last year. Never had an issue again (other than customs taking it off me and keeping it for themselves) 

They even have a little punch cutter in the base of them just incase you forget a cutter.
