Best draw tool?

Where do you find them? Online? B&M? Make them yourself? I really hate a tight draw. Anybody use draw tools? What do you recommend?

    Look up Havana Saver. They have some really cool ones.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    I will be watching this thread with interest. Right now ever since I got my nubber from Stubble I have been using it

    I make my own from the thinnest guage coat hanger wire I can find and I cut the end square, not pointed. Pointed ones tend to split what they're being pushed through but a square end cuts a clean hole.... That's an old-time carpenter's trick....

    A large straightened paperclip works well also. It costs significantly less than any fancy purchased draw tool.

    And it has a square-cut end. Good choice....

    eBay is where I got mine. Around $12 if I remember right. There were several in the Buy It Now section if you don't want to mess around with an auction.

    Edit: It was from Havana Saver as 0patience mentioned.

    I've used a toothpick, usually just tight around the head.

    Havana saver. I have used paper clips, pipe tools... this thing is great. Worth every penny. I need to order another.

    I've been using my Stubble nubber, but I went to the website and these look good. Might have to get one - it really is annoying to get a tight draw - can ruin a great cigar. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Oooohh, a big no-no on the ice pick. Those things have points. Pointed draw tools are a split cigar waiting to happen..... Just sayin....

    A good friend of mine makes them and I have several that tend to cater to the size of the cigar....the nice thing about his is that they are "fluted" which makes it easy to get to the offending piece of tobacco and grab it while backing it out. It opens even the most stubborn plugs and has saved me a ton of money over the years. Here is a photo of them ( they are called wine tools but he makes them fluted and they are the best cigar tools out there...I have about a dozen different tools but his are the best ) http://www.wineadors.com/cigar-tools.html
