I don't know why, but when I look at this clipper, I think of
the French Revolution when the guillotine swung hard and heavy. You lay the
cigar in the depression, extend the head past the razor and push down. The
cut-off head drops in the basket for your disposal. The base is made from wood,
ashtray is solid brass and the blade is stainless steel with a safety lock.
Handles cigars up to a 54 ring gauge.
