Say hello to my little friend — the Cigar Prop Travel XC.
This new Cigar Prop was crafted for those of you who are looking for a practical everyday-carry device to keep your cigars out of the dirt and grime wherever you might be smoking.
We’ve gone back to basics with the Travel XC. It’s not as fancy as our other Cigar Props, but that’s by design. Our plan was to create a compact, useful cigar rest that we could pass onto our valued customers for $10 or less.
After a few dozen requests for a product like what the Travel XC would become, we decided to roll up our sleeves and make it happen.
The project almost died because of materials, but we happened to be in the right place at the right time and made a connection with a materials source that has helped make the Travel XC become a reality.
We named it the Travel XC because each part is .03 inches thick and weighs less than an ounce. It can literally fit in the credit card slot of your wallet. The “X” denotes the prop’s shape, and the “C” pays homage to Craig Vanderslice, aka Cigar Craig (www.cigarcraig.com). We’ve known Craig for many years now, and he’s been instrumental in helping our business grow.
The Cigar prop Travel XC is made of high-quality, polished stainless steel. That’s not to say that the props have a perfectly mirrored finish. The XC is made from stainless steel, which is the best material for long-term durability in a wallet. The raw materials come in roll form, which helps us keep costs down for you.
Each XC has unique scratches that are derived from the manufacturing process. In order to keep our costs down, we opted not to do a final polishing and sanding to remove those scratches. But in all honesty, we love the character that the scratches provide. And, if you’re a true, frequent cigar aficionado, you’re going to add your own, unique patina to the prop through normal use.
We hope you thoroughly enjoy our new Cigar Prop Travel XC because this one was made for you. Remember, always make sure to give your cigars the props they deserve.
