Cigar smoking, like pipe smoking, is ritual, not habitual. You can’t just light up a cigar on the fly and expect to enjoy the full experience; far from it, and you probably wouldn’t even want to, anyway.
Instead, to pay the proper homage to the blend and the master blenders that made it, cigar smokers need a few tools of the trade to properly store, prepare, and light the cigar in order to enjoy it to the fullest.
These are the cigar accessories that all cigar lovers keep on hand, along with a few top picks from our site.
What Cigar Accessories Do You Need?
At a minimum, all cigar smokers should keep the following cigar accessories within easy reach:
●Cigar lighter: Soft flame or torch flame doesn’t matter, as long as you know how to get a reliable, even light with the lighter you choose. (You can also carry matches and cedar spills if you’re a purist).
●Cigar cutter, punch, or knife: Absolutely essential cigar accessories; You’ll need either a cutter, punch, or knife to cut a small plug away from the cap of the cigar so that you can achieve a consistent draw.
●Cigar ashtray: Useful, especially if you’re smoking inside. It helps not only to contain the ashes but also the smell.
●Cigar cases: Necessary, not a suggestion. A cigar case will help protect your cigars when you travel with them, and who doesn’t?
In addition to cigar travel cases, cigar smokers should also keep a cigar humidor at home in order to properly store and age their cigars. Without storing them at the proper humidity, the quality of the tobacco will quickly deteriorate.

5.Atlantic Cigar Logo Ashtray
What can we say that our branded cigar tray doesn’t say for itself? Stylish, classic, unforgettable, and practical, place it in a location of honor and let the compliments roll it.
This unique, easy-to-use HumidiMeter makes it easy to see (with basically the touch of a button) what the humidity level of a cigar is. Never smoke an over or under humidified cigar again. Take the guesswork out of the experience with a one-of-a-kind cigar accessory like this.
These are not exciting and not really even a cigar accessory by some metrics, but they are highly convenient and just as useful if not more so.
They contain 99.99% pure butane, but that’s not even their top-selling feature. It’s the fact that they’re so small - only 18ml each. Torch lighters suck fuel; throw a few of these little things in your pocket before you hit the road and you’ll never have to suffer a dry lighter again.
