Some cigar cutters are ingeniously designed to double as a knuckle-duster should the night take a turn for the worse. The basic cigar cutter of this design can transform nicely between a set of knuckles and a useful smoking tool. Some merchants are able to unlock the cigar cutter by adding a prominent drakar element for the purpose of lighting cigars, which also adds a little heat to the user's punches.
