cigar accessory brands and designs

One thing that makes the cigar culture so fun and kind of addictive is the number of accessories available out there for us cigar lovers.


In this article, we want to briefly describe some accessories a cigar aficionado would like and also name some brands constantly proposing cool cigar gadgets! From the most famous cigar accessories brand to the small emergent designers or artisans, here’s the list of our all-time favorites to date.

We hope you enjoy it and get teased into acquiring yet another toy or two.




What kind of accessories are needed when you are a cigar smoker?


To smoke a cigar, you need three things: a cigar, a cutter, and something to light it. But if you are into smoking regularly, the list goes on a bit more; that’s the list we like.




Cigar Humidors

A cigar humidor is designed to store your cigars while helping maintain their humidity level. By keeping the humidity level, the humidor allows the tobacco leaves to expand or contract according to the humidity inside.


There exists a wide range of humidors. Materials span the range from stainless steel to acrylic or some of the most expensive woods.

By size, you can find Walk-in humidors, Furniture humidors, personal humidors, or travel humidors.


Cigar Cutters and cigar punchers

Cigars generally come cut on one of the ends, and the other end is capped. This cap is a small part of the wrapper leaf stuck with tobacco paste or other vegetable glue to the tip, which must be cut and removed before smoking the cigar. To do this, you need a cutter device.


Another cigar tool is a cigar punch. These cylindrical blades gently remove the cap's center on a cigar. Besides a more concentrated draw, some connoisseurs prefer a punch cut because it leaves the edges of the cap, or the cigar's shoulder, fully intact.



Cigar Lighters and Matches

To light up a cigar, you need a flame. Choose between 2 options: a wooden match, a thin strip of cedar, or a lighter. These options will not transfer chemical flavor to your cigar.







Cigar ashtrays

Ashtrays are needed when smoking cigars. First, you want to cut your cigar on an ashtray. In the smoking process, place the ash tip on the tapered inside surface of the ashtray and gently roll off the ash. If the ash doesn't come off when you press and roll it, it is not time to ash. When the ash is released, it will slide down into the bowl of the ashtray.



Cigar cases

A cigar case is simply a case for carrying cigars. The key aspect of cigar cases, as opposed to a humidifier, is their portability and ease of taking cigars with you.








Cigar Holders

Instead of placing your cigar into an ashtray, you can let it rest on a cigar holder. Cigar holders are a base designed to keep your cigar in a good position and give you hand freedom.
