Sure looks like a cigar cutter...but you're right...seems small.

Most cigar cutters I've seen are even smaller than 1/2". Maybe it's a circumcision tool for squirrels or other small creatures! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the replies. Questions,
1. Why are cigar cutters that small?
2 how do you get the squirrel to stay still during the procedure?
3. Do candle wicks come that large?

Inquiring mind want to know. ::facepalm:: ::shrug::

cigar cutters are not for cutting the cigar in half but just to trim the end off to make a hole big enough to draw thru. Watch old movies, there guys often just nip the tip of the cigar with their teeth. A cigar cutter was more refined and eliminated the need to look around for a place to spit the tip when indoors.
