X8 75 Series Xikar Cigar Cutter
The X875 Series Cutter is yet another addition to the X8 series, now bigger more powerful then ever. Its sharp stainless steel blades can cut a 75 ring gauge cigar in half and can easily cap an 80! It was designed for cigar smokers who think bigger is better.
''A long time ago in 1994, when we were all younger, Kurt wanted to buy a good cigar cutter. He found that both the inexpensive cutters and the high-end models were under performing and not providing good value.'' Kurt Van Keppel is the leading innovator behind Xikar products and is the current president of the company. Scott Almsberger is the vice-president and director of design. The two came together through an eye for innovation and a dissatisfaction with the cigar accessories market. Kurt, who has an MBA, took control of management and administration whilst Scott, who was an industrial designer by trade, took control of engineering and product design.
