Brands/models you hate?

ive only had one, a cheap thing that came with a montecristo sampler but I like how they work.

    The only one I've used is the Xikar, love it!

    Any thoughts on the differences/advantages of the full-size XV versus the keychain version?

    Got a Colibri while back just to try it out, love the v-cut now.  Works great and had no problems but probably will get the Xikar next, read on here that they were better.  Haven't tried a punch yet.

    I absolutely love V cutters for the bigger ring gauges.unfortunately, I only have a cheapo plastic one that can hardly cut butter. I hear the xikar one is nice though

    Yea, my cheepo just tears up the cap so looking to upgrade.  Sounds like the Xizar is the way to go.

    Why use a V cut over a punch of appropriate size?  Perfect circle and all that.  That said, I've started using my Wenger Cigar scissor knife more recently.  A brilliant pair of scissors that allows for a full to slight cut.  I'm not sure I get the appeal of a V cut.

    It's all about surface area. Look how much more open a V cut is than a punch. Having said that, all I have is a V cutter I bought for about $6 and I have never used. Some day I'll grab a Xikar so I'll have a reliable one I'm not afraid to use.
