I have the Burl. If I had to do it over again, I would go with the regular black finish. Either way, you'll enjoy the cutter so congratulations on a good choice :tu

I have a $1.99 cutter and a punch too, but its time to implement an upgrade to my habit. I've been researching Cuban Crafters web page regarding their cutters, but then again, whispers in the Jungle say "Palio" is the real deal. So I went to their site and checked them out http://www.paliocutters.com/ . Sometimes, you just need to listen to your fellow Gorillas. So, do I choose the Original Composite, Burl Wood, or Carbon Fiber? :cb
When I get one... (not if :hn:r ) I will get the plain. The burl and Carbon fiber are just paint or a coating. I never liked faux wood on the sides of station wagons or minivans either. However if it had real wood or CF accents?? A different story. I know they would be extremely cost prohibitive, if not impossible to make out of actual burl, and the CF tooling, setup and finishing would be a nightmare.

Don't forget its best feature. You can use the Palio as a cigar rest if you need to set your cigar down for any reason.

Hey Mark, I gave away my original finish when I upgraded to the burlwood. The fancy finishes don't really improve the function but they are shinier and do keep people from confusing the Palio with a cheaper plastic cutter. The Palio is not made from ordinary plastic its some special composite.

Go with the Carbon Fiber. It's so pretty!!

Finally got mine the other day, and let me tell you I'm very impressed. I actually took a Don Elias and chopped it into 100 bits, I guess I had alittle too much fun :) I highly reccomend picking one of these up.

Wow, it's been a whole week without a Palio endorsement?

Let me correct that. Got one for Christmas and used it for the first time today.

Wow. There aren't many things that live up to the hype these days, but the Palio did for sure.

Best cutter ever. Ever since I bought mine I've been in heaven. The first day I got it I made about 20 cuts on a dog rocket just because it was so easy.

One of these days I am going to stop applying my own thought process. Just got one Xikar off cbid for $23 and it is ok I guess. Also got another Xikar in the Cohiba gift pack the Wifey got for me.

Now, I will have 5 crap cutters if the $2-$5 range, 2 V's, and 2 Xikars....yet my dumb, ignorant arse will still go buy a Palio to correct the earlier blunders.

I know at some point I heard myself say "it is a fricking cutter, not rocket science, what is the big deal."

I have the learning curve of a damn tick.

how much were they in the group buy? Is that confidential information? The only reason i'm asking is because I would like to buy another one, but my wife probably will not approve of the $40 purchase right now.
