    With torpedos, I start with a cut that will give me an open section with roughly 1/4" in diameter. You can always test the draw and cut a bit more if need be.

    Funny I would read this. I have a CAO torpedo and was wondering just how to cut it! :) Brian

    Just make sure you don't too much and unravel the cap. I have alwys cut my torpedo cigars on an angle, delivers more flavor and smoke directly onto the palate.

    Interesting... I never thought of cutting on an angle. I'll have to try that out once I get over this damned cold I've got.

    Agreed... The first torpedo I ever smoked had been pre-cut on an angle by the guy that sold it to me. I honestly didn't think it would make any difference... The next one I smoked I cut straight and couldn't figure out why it was so different (same cigar)... Tried the angle again and definately noticed a big different in the flavor... Now I always cut torps at an angle... boxes I always just cut straight and any regular stuff (robusto, etc) I use v-cut... That's my personal combination for sucess! ;)

    I think another big advantage is you can get a bigger cut and therefore better draw yet not clip off the cap or even much of the cigar itself...

    ive tossed around the idea of cutting on an angle. Every time that i cut one i forget about it untill about 3 puffs in. Ill try my best to do this next torp i have.

    and Ron, I,ve got one too so I can sympathize.

    I like the idea of cutting at an angle. I never even thought of that but it makes sense. Same thing for the V-cut. I might have to strat tring something other than the regular old straight cut. Time for some experimentation when I'm over this cold.
