I have never seen a "tobacco cutter," let alone a slingblade -- shows ya how much I know.

Question: about what era are we talking here?

At any rate, those are really cool and thanks for posting them!

Trout Bum,

I haven't done a lot of research... accept casually... a lot of cutters were provided by the tobacco companies (if not all)... there are lots of "spring action ones"... I like the wood block slicer... likely from the old fashion country style store or general store and not the tobacconist.

It's not unusually to find some the "spring action" ones from the later part of 1800's.

Something is wrong with the world when the unemployed make fun of those with degrees and jobs.....

So a man walks into his regular bar with a big box of cigars. "Have a cigar, friends! My wife has just delivered a beautiful, healthy baby boy, 8 lbs, 6 oz."

Two weeks later, he returns to the pub. A buddy asks him, "Hey, how's your new son doing?"
"Oh, he's doing just fine. He's got a good appetite, and now he weighs almost 7 lbs."
"7 lbs? Didn't you say back then he was more than 8?"
"Well... we had him circumcised."

This must be the "mother" load of all tobacco cutters. The corona bottle is not propping up the handle.

It pretty well convinces me that these are "hand-made". The blade on this one is the size of butcher's knife if not bigger. The table it is attached to is from a larger piece of furniture. (I was waiting to pick up my grandson from school the other day and dropped into the Antique Mall and quickly spotted this. I couldn't resist.My Tobacco Cutter Collection T4-pip10
