I'm an anti-social cigar smoker. F everyone else. Bring your own cigars. Bring your own cutter. Bring your own cigar. Don't ask why the porch door is locked. Didn't I already tell you I'm an anti-social cigar smoker??? LOL. Now go stand outside looking in with your uncut, unlit tube'o'leaves. As far as cost, I'm not seeing Vertigo's going for TONS less than Xikar. We're talking $50 versus $20-25. Not a huge cost difference. It certainly isn't 4:1.
