A year ago I ran almost this same story. July 3rd, to be exact, so it was over a year ago, but just barely. Finally Screwpop is coming to market with this cutter. Screwpop® is one of my favorite under the radar cigar accessory companies. They are really a mainstream gadget company that are cigar lovers and makes cigar tools too, but they have some winners. Their CigarPunch 3.0 is one of the better punches out there, and I’d like to think I had something to do with the re-design of the 2.0! They have a cigar cutter that, while it takes come practice, works pretty well too. I can’t wait to try this cutter out, I’ve been looking forward to it since I read about it a year ago.
Screwpop® Tool to offer revolutionary cigar cutter – Magpulse™
The latest in compact and highly functional tools, Screwpop® introduces – Magpulse™ Cigar Cutter, a revolutionary force in cigar cutting technology.
Magpulse™ capitalizes on the delicate balancing of dual magnetic forces of ultra-strong neodymium rare-earth magnets, in concert with a semi-friction break, that is designed for a controlled closing of the cutter.
Simply press (and hold) the centralized trigger to experience Magpulse™ thrust open for the first time through “repulse” magnetic force phenomena.
Once fully deployed, Magpulse™ stays in the open position using magnetic “attraction” onto small metal tabs that are embedded (trigger side) in the main body. These small metal tabs serve to anchor the cutter assembly open.
When releasing the trigger to close the Magpulse™, the trigger-stem functions as a “semi friction-break”. The break force is applied on the bottom face of the movable slider blade. This prevents the cutter from falling closed once the attraction force is broken.
Together… the repulse, attraction and semi-friction break work in harmony for a smooth and controlled premium cigar tip cut.
The stylish Magpulse™ cigar cutter is brought to life using the latest and best in CNC milling technology. Each cigar cutter body is milled from solid blocks of 6061T6 aero-space grade solid aluminum billets. They are finished with durable anodization for years of use.
Each unit is sealed shut for life and cannot be reopened. And, the magnets will only degrade less than 1 percent over 100 years.
