Kansas City, MO – February 10, 2015 XIKAR, Inc. proudly introduces the M8, their newest classic-function double guillotine cutter. XIKAR’s X8 cutter now wears a sleek and stylish metal body for a more refined look and feel.
The M8 maintains the same size, quality and performance that cigar smokers expect from XIKAR. This cutter features 440 stainless steel blades for a smooth and clean cut every time. Available in bead blast and gunmetal finishes, the M8 is the perfect combination of style and performance.
“The M8 is XIKAR’s version of the ultimate traditional double guillotine cutter,” said Kurt Van Keppel, CEO and Founder of XIKAR. “Since the introduction of the X8, we knew that the metal version would be inevitable. After meticulous fine tuning of the metal version, we excitedly announce our new release” continued Mr. Van Keppel.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, XIKAR is the leading cigar accessory brand. Creator of the revolutionary and iconic Xi1 cutter, XIKAR sells product in thousands of retail locations around the world.
In 1995, Kurt Van Keppel wanted to buy a good cigar cutter, but found that both the inexpensive and high-end models underperformed. So, he set out with Scott Almsberger to match good design (ergonomics and function) with the best styling and materials. The result was the Xi cutter, launched in 1997.
