best way to cut a san lotano oval?

What does everyone use? Punch it? Double guillotine? V-cut? Does it matter? It's an odd shape, just wondered what other people are doing.

    just a standard cut with my Xi3 for me, always wondered how a v-cut would work on that cigar in comparison

    With smaller box-pressed or ovals, I tend to do a v-cut, unless my pre-light physical inspection reveals a hard-packed stick - then I'll use a guillotine.
    If I do a v-cut, and the draw is insufficient, I'll do another v-cut at 90 degrees to the first (forming a cross of sorts)

    I use a Cuban Crafters perfect cut. Works like a charm everytime.

    well what i've done is partially cut the cap rotate the cigar 180 degrees and then do the same cut and that gets the cap off. i think it's the power of the shorts

    Just imagine ... if you can wrap your mind around it ... the power of The Beard combined with the power of The Shorts ... Holy Cow !!!

    The cut & rotate method is what I use with my Xi3. Works pretty well
