    Cigar lighter- looking for suggestions

    I recommend Xikar. They have a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. Pretty hard to beat. I own four different Xikar lighters and have never had any problems with them. I had the opportunity to test the warranty however. I dropped my punch cutter and broke the blade. I sent it in and two weeks...

    Headcharge, The same holds true in wet-shaving as in cigars; your milage may vary. With that being said, I absolutely love the Cameroon Label. I think it's the green label. They are a great cigar for the price. Many times I have considered ordering a box of them. The sampler...

    Basic Cuban Cigar Question

    Awesome!!! I hoped you would try a RASS! This is abosolutely my all-time favorite cigar. You know, the debate usually goes something like this; "habanOs aren't any better than Dominicans". Or this; "HabanOs are way over-rated". I have found out that these statements usually come from people...

    Investing noob

    Voomie, First and foremost, if you have any debt, pay that off before investing into the stock market. Chances are that your return from the market will not be as much as you are paying in interest in student loans, car loans, credit card debt, etc. Plain and simple. I love Jim Cramer but...

    Mama Bear collection update....

    Ron, Actually it is a Dirty Bird scuttle. I cold water shave now but have found that before I switched to only Mama Bear, any soap or cream would break down rather fast if the scuttle was HOT. The trick to keeping the cream or soap from breaking down is getting the water warm. I rarely use a...

    Basic Cuban Cigar Question

    Keep in mind that all Customs officials have to do is SUSPECT that cigars being brought in to the US are of Cuban origin to confiscate them, hassle you, and potentially fine you. Bands or no bands. I highly recommend not bringing any cigars back with you. Doing so is just asking for trouble at...

    Basic Cuban Cigar Question

    I'd also like to mention Ramon Allones, specifically the Specially Selected (robusto size). The RASS is by far the best habano I have smoked. Being that it seems to be relatively obscure in comparison to Monte Cristo and Cohibas, it is probably less likely to be counterfitted. Another...
