A crescent blade specifically designed for use in making cigars, with an added wooden handle and stand for a more Modern Chaveta Knife.
Leaf Only is now offering a new, modern style chaveta for all our make-your-own cigar rollers out there. After much searching, we've finally found a knife that gets the job done and still has the traditional shape and design of chavetas used throughout the history of cigar making. Although not the 100% authentic design, this chaveta is just as functional!
This Chaveta Kinfe comes pre-sharpened - be careful and use at your own risk! The Chaveta also comes with a matching wooden stand. Once placed on the stand, the knife will stand upright on its own, providing for quick retrieval whenever you need it. The knife measures approximately 5 1/2 inches long by 4 inches high.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"The dark fire cured remains a winner, but a little goes a long way in my pipe blends. One half leaf rolled with about two big bright leaves and then scissored makes a decent substitute for Three Nuns or Escudo.
My favorite so far is your Canadian flue cured shredded and blended with modest amounts of Latakia and Perique. Almost indistinguishable from the former Dunhill London Mixtures and way better than the current musty German or Danish versions now available.
A REAL treat is any of your bright leaf products tightly rolled with an UNrolled bit of Gawith and Hoggarth Black Irish Twist and then sliced. Makes a grand substitute for many tobaccos which have just gone away. "
