Casdagli Cigars adds Custom Les Fines Lames Cigar Knife
The Casdagli Cigars team is quickly building an impressive accessory line up under their Villa Casdagli Collection. As part of our 3-part feature on Casdagli Cigars we highlighted some of their luxurious gentleman’s offerings from pocket squares and cuff links to one-off ashtrays and humidors. On November 23rd, Casdagli announced the newest addition to their growing accessory portfolio, a limited edition, multi-purpose cigar knife in collaboration with upstart French accessory craftsmen, Les Fines Lames (loosely translated as ‘the thin blades’).
The new knife is dubbed Le PETIT Villa Casdagli Limited Edition and will be limited to production of only 100 pieces, each one numbered and carrying the Casdagli mantra, “Luxury, Elegance, Tradition” engraved on the spine of the blade. Les Fines Lames is known to use exotic materials and woods in their accessories and their choice for this project included encasing the knife in a durable Mediterranean olive wood overlayed with Casdagli’s iconic two-headed goose pattern, evocative of Villa Casdagli and the family’s crest. The familiar half-moon cut out in the case for the cigar head is unique to Les Fines Lames.
The blade is also engraved with the goose pattern and is made of dull-resistant 14C28N stainless steel fortified to 59 HRC hardness. The knife is not only a cigar cutter but also serves an every day carry (EDC) pocket knife. The blade measures 6.5 cm (~2.5″) and the knife overall is 11.5 cm (4.3″). European MSRP is set at 239€, which puts it around $270 US for those of us across the pond. The Le PETIT Villa Casdagli Limited Edition knife is available for purchase now at either online site, Casdagli Cigars and Les Fines Lames. – In Fumo Pax!
