Scrim by Hutch— A Completely Different Kind of Cigar Cutter
So, what do you give to that special premium cigar smoker in your life that has a humidor filled with a gazillion smokes from every popular manufacturer and just about every cigar accessory one could ever need— how’s about presenting him with a Scrim By Hutch Cigar Cutter! Scrim By who you say? Please read on….
Scrim by Hutch Studios is the maker of specially handcrafted cigar cutters that are unlike any other. Using the enormously popular Xikar Xi3 cutter for his canvas, renowned artist Rick “Hutch” Hutchings a Louisville, Kentucky based artisan personally carves spectacular designs of famous characters and symbols from movies, history, stage, and screen, in ivory bark, buffalo horn, fossil walrus, scrimshaw, and other rare and exotic materials.
First unveiling these gems at the IPCPR 2017 trade show, Hutchings, with a large Facebook following and a massive social media presence, amassed quite a large group of fans at his booth with such novelties as the The Big Lebowski set, two buffalo horn cutters based off the film. One features Jeff Bridges’ character, Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, and the other Walter Sobchak played by John Goodman. On display were a slew of other examples of his fine work that our company took home from the show. Let’s have a look at a few of them since you are already deeply vested in this blog.
George Burns, a celebrated comedian and famous cigar smoker is featured on another cutter, which is made of 10,000-year-old mammoth ivory with only 100 individually numbered pieces produced. Staying in the comedian/ cigar smoking genre, the The Scrim By Hutch Groucho Cigar Cutter is made from rare Buffalo Horn and shows the lead Marx Brother in that famous pose with a big stogie sticking out of his kisser.
The Scrim By Hutch Sir Winston Cigar Cutter features the face of one of the most legendary premium cigars smokers and world leaders etched in stunning mammoth ivory. Winston fans can also choose the Scrim by Hutch Winston At War Cutter version that features a beautifully etched rendering of this elder statesman in scrimshaw handsomely decked out in his military gear with the words “Winston At War” boldly etched on the handle.
This Scrim by Hutch Expendables Stallone Skull Cigar Cutter pays homage to Sly in the movie “The Expendables”. His face is accurately carved in scrimshaw artwork. Stallone fans will want to add this highly-collectible, individually numbered cutter to their premium cigar accessory collection. If you really want to draw attention to this stunning piece of artwork in your possession, you can yell “Adrian” at the top of your lungs every time you clip the cap off your cigar. I know, wrong movie, but off the top of my head I couldn’t think of any notable lines from “The Expendables”!
