Quick guide for cigar beginners

All right, you guys, so let's get right into it. We will talk about how to do a crown cut on your cigar. I've also heard it called a rose cut. I'm not sure about that, but we will go for it. It is a very, very simple thing to do, you guys. The crown cut has become something popular.

Does it make a difference in your cigar? Some say therefore, you can get more surface area, and draw more smoke out of the cigar could give you more flavor. Do I believe in that? Not really, but there are many fun ways to smoke your cigar, so today, we will focus on how to make the crown cut and keep my opinion out of it.

Mardo Cigars using a V-cutter

How to cut a cigar?

All right, so you got to get a cigar, and then you will have to source yourself a V-cut cigar  cutter. When you have a V-cut cigar, you're going to place your cigar right in a V-cut just like this.

You're going to make a traditional V-cut cutter cut as it is a proper way to cut a cigar, and then you're going to turn the cigar, and then you're going to cross that cut just like that on the cigar. I have heard that crown cut is three V cuts, but I can see how it could damage the cap because this is a deep V cutter if I take a lot more surface to the area. Then it could start unraveling the cigar.

So having a crown cut with just two V cuts that are diagonal to each other will serve your purpose. And then this is also, I guess, called a rose cut. So I'm just going to stick with a crown cut. As you can tell by my voice, I'm very novice to this.

Common question about cigar cutting

Does it make a difference in your cigar? I don't think so, you guys, but try it. Let me know by leaving your comments on what you think as opposed to a  guillotine cut.

Now, I think there's a big difference between a punch and a straight cut because the punch is very narrow, with little| space to get the smoke, and a guillotine cut's going to get even more surface area.

However, this is giving me more of a deeper cut. I don't know, giving you more surface area to draw more smoke. That's my take on how to make a crown cut on your cigar.
