    I have a cousin (actually dad's cousin) that has smoked 3-5 cigars a day for forty years. He's never used a cutter. . . only his teeth. Maybe because he's dentist? Just bite a little off a time. I've had to do it about a dozen times and have never had a problem.

    Depending on the vitola, you could punch a nice hole with a golf tee.

    sharp knife......many people think their knife is sharp, when it ain't even close to sharp....if you're not sure, get a razor blade from a cutter

    Golf tee??......not me.........I'd use a nail that I sharpened with a stone

    Was just about to say that. Knife blades usually aren't as sharp as you think. A box cutter blade should work perfect. I do think a good knife could carve out a punch though.

    I've used the tip end of the small blade of my pocketknife a couple times successfully. I stab rather than slice and a few stab cuts in a small circle is as good as a punch hole. Just sayin'........

    wrong.....the Beard simply "flicks" the head of the cigar with his middle finger, resulting in a perfect cut.............

    I've had this happend to me at work. Luckily my supply has boxes of brand new razors. If I am out of a cutter, I'll usually just wait. Nothing wrong with saving a smoke until the evening.

    i use my pocket knife when i dont have my cutter, but instead of cutting because it will crush it, i use the point to carve a hole in the end, works great and dont mess up the cigar...

    I guess I have a sharper knife than most, I just sliced off the end. No offence, but there is no sense in having a dull knife.

    Some pretty good ideas here that I never thought of. I usually just pull out the pocket knive and very carefully slice the smallest sliver off the cap as I can. But now I usually have my punch keyring around.

    I used to keep mine like a razor..but after a slip and almost loosing a finger, I keep it sharp but not enough to slice as easy lol

    I think someone mentioned on the boards before but a good way to cut, especially on delicate wrappers, is to just cut to cap first by making a surface incision in a circle. Just keep going a bit deeper with every revolution of the stick till the cap wrapper comes off. If you don't like the little bit of loose filler you can cut that flat one the cap is off. This is much better than trying to saw the sole head off at once. It works well with curved cutter blades but I am sur works with a sharp straight blade too.

    This is the method I use when I don't have a cutter handy, except instead of using a knife or a blade of any sort I use my fingernail. Works great!

    Are there certain styles of sticks that you should punch instead of using a cutter on? Or, iis it just a personal preference?

    I use my fingernail and tear the cap off with it whenever I forget mine. Also a match can work as a punch

    Was at the casino last week. Forgot the cutter, only had matches. When I finsihed the steak and shrimp, I wiped off the steak knife and sliced the cap right off. F*uck it man, just gimma a way to get a draw off that sucker and I will figure out the rest.

    I've used a pen knife plenty of times. It'll do in a pinch (and obviously you'll need to order a backup cutter for such occasions).
