    My mate was very impressed

    He suffers from arthritus badly in the fingers so the cigar style was just what he wanted. Slim lines he just cann't handle

    Well mate, he's had the best part of a week to put it through it's paces... what'd he think?
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.
