Cigar cutters

Ok, I've got a xikar cutter kind of a tear drop shape, and then I have a couple plastic cutters. I'm starting to notice they aren't cutting very well anymore ie. tears or not cleanly cut, maybe because im not coordinated enough to squeeze evenly. I'm thinking of getting a table top cutter, was looking for some feedback on them...thanks ladies and gentlemen

    I clean mine every few months, it cuts like new every time.  There was a thread about it a long time ago.

    Qtip and rubbing alcohol.  Some people swear by cutting with the cello still on. Supposedly it keeps the blades sharp. But I never think of it until I've already pulled off the cello.

    The only reason I've ever herd for cutting with cello was sanitation, so in a group you can ensure noone has licked their cap first.

    I do the cello routine with my Xikar.  I really haven't noticed a difference one way or the other.

    I do love the cutter though, it's my favorite.

    Xikar requires you to fill out a form you print off (from their site), fill it out, mail it and that's it.  They have about a 14 day turnaround. I just got my cutter resharpened. Took 9 days from the time I mailed it to when it was in my hand again.

    Simple process.
