Going through airport security on trip way back, the woman in charge of searching my backpack spent more than ten minutes going through its various nooks and crannies only to find that it was my Xikar v-cutter that looked suspect on the scanner.
There is definitely a better way of travelling with cigars and the various accessories.
Project Carbon — Dia de Muertos Edition Travel Case
Project Carbon is synonymous with cigar pouches and travel cases. They offer a wide variety of cases made from various materials in an array of colours. With a mildly strange affinity to skulls and the “day of the dead”, this green leather, limited edition case has aesthetic appeal. When it comes to functionality, Project Carbon has all the bases covered with a collapsible cigar pocket to hold between five and seven cigars, three-pocket storage for accessories such as lighters, cutter, a big, flexible band to hold a cigar rest and a smaller flexible band to hold a perfect draw tool for when a cigar feels blocked.
It is made from grain leather, has a retractable handle for easy carrying and an insert in the front and back of the case, as well as the front pocket of the cigar pouch that is hard enough to protect the cigars, but not so hard that they affect the weight and structure of the case. When ordering a case online, there is the option of getting it with a Perfecdraw pen and a Zimmer cigar stand.
