Design Details No. 1 - Hajenius Cigars' Tip, Amsterdam...


As an occasional, but long-term regular, cigar smoker I've recently had a chance to enjoy a few Dutch Hajenius cigars whilst visiting Amsterdam. Usually when lighting a cigar it's quite difficult to light them evenly as the area one needs to light with a match, (butane) lighter, or even a sliver of wood, is quite large and, particularly today when most public places don't allow one to smoke inside, one often has to also deal with wind and/ or rain. In these cigars the solution is quite ingenious. Here the cigar's tip has been pinched or slimmed down into a smaller, and thus much easier to light, tip which eventually after a few drags expands into its full size...

Brilliant..!
