Davidoff Cigar Knife: Zino Cutter Goes Metal
A metal version of the renowned double-blade Zino cigar cutter made its appearance at the 1999 RTDA Trade Show. The epitome of quality and elegance, the cutter is available in two finishes - brushed or barley grain - and in three different colors; chrome, guilded, or bi-color. The surgical steel blades are extremely easy to engage, and offer years of satisfaction. Prices range from $280 to $320.

Davidoff also introduced a practical and useful Cigar Knife. Similar to a Swiss army knife with two cutting blades and scissors, the knife has an added patented feature exclusive to Davidoff - a cutter blade. This blade has three round cutting edges similar to the Davidoff Round Cutter, and insures a perfect cut every time. Available in five finishes; palladium, guilded, bicolor lacquer, brown, or lacquer black, the knife retails from $280 to $330. Both cutters include soft leather protective cases.
