"If you can't even smoke a cigar, why are you studying a cigar cutter?"

Why do cigars need to be cut?

After a good cigar is packaged, one end is sealed with tobacco leaves, which must be cut before smoking to allow ventilation. When storing cigars, pay attention to appropriate humidity. If they are too dry, they will crack. Therefore, good cigars should be stored in a humidifier. However, if the tobacco leaves are too wet, the smoke will be very hot after lighting, so they must be dried first.

Usually, handmade cigars have seals and need to be cut before smoking, while machine-made cigars do not need to be cut.
