Mr. Dixon gifted me a wonderful post Valentine’s Day and pre-birthday gift from Sir Jack’s, because he says February is my birthday month haha. This was a true surprise, because I had no idea he was even getting me a beautiful, new piece of silver.

Originally, I was looking at beat up German silver antiques from 1st Dibs, almost destroyed Tiffany silver guillotine cutters, and over-inflated Cartier vintage cutters online. They kept slowly selling out and fluctuating in price. This was annoying, but I was not excited to spend $10 on something from Amazon that would fall apart in a week.
Opening the English silver-encased cigar cutter, it came in a cute black satin pouch. I was so surprised to see this heirloom reveal itself before my eyes. I always love purchasing silver and have been wanting to build my collection since getting handed down some silverware and polishing my family’s 300 year old collection that took eight days and five hours a day to polish. No wonder people back then had servants.
This small — almost charm-like — cigar cutter is so sleek, lightweight, and simple. It is the perfect start cigar cutter, and if anything, is something I will pass down to my children, grandchildren, or anyone who is interested. I am really excited for this purchase and used it for the first time this Valentine’s Day weekend in our backyard on a Davidoff Signature Petit Corona.
It was quick, slick, and did the job like I have been using it for ages. The cigar cutter feels right in the hand. It is beautiful to look at. The cut was smooth. I am also looking forward to finding a separate cigar cutter that is a bit stronger and sturdier, because this thing is skinny.

Specifically speaking, I want something that will hold up if I drop it. In addition, I want it to have a chain fob so I can use it in London, when I have a good suit on and am ready for a visit to Davidoff. It is the Nicholas Foulkes thing to do, after all.

This is a great starter silver cigar cutter, or something to keep at home in the smoking room, but not to take out to play. It is something you gift or keep at home to be precious. The make is very delicate, and I am worried that if I drop it, it will fall apart, because this amount of silver is all the way through — not plated — and my husband probably did not plan on spending a lot for Valentine’s Day. I do not mind this at all. It does the job, and I get a piece of silver I can hand down to my loved ones.
Thank you so much for taking time to read the end of this post. I hope you find some inspiration in this and feel free to share with your friends as a free way to help my blog grow. Your support is endlessly appreciated.
