Manufactured following the discovery of tobacco in the Americas, the cigar became a symbol of wealth and elegance in the mid-19th century. Social codes were put in place to govern its consumption, especially in terms of accessories. One of these is the cigar cutter, which cuts off the rounded or rocket-shaped end of any new cigar. This small diameter cigar cutter contains a bevelled blade that allows a precise cut in the ring that holds the tip of the cigar. Donation from Helen L. Colby.
