Their luxurious Townhouse on 42nd Street in Manhattan, a destination for gentlemen cigar aficionados for over 80 years, is well stocked with a selection of fine accessories that make perfect gifts.
Highlights include the palladium plated S.T. Dupont Chinese Lacquer Lighter ($1,225), the design of which harks back to the Shang Dynasty (1046 BC). The lighter (right) is not only elegant but shock, scratch, and even fire resistant. The David Linley Union Jack Humidor ($2,950), made by the aristocratic nephew of the Queen of England, is fashioned by hand in burr oak, burr walnut and ripple sycamore walnut inlaid in the shape of the British flag at the company’s London atelier. Lined with Spanish cedar wood to help maintain the perfect humidity level for storing fine cigars, it features a built-in humidifier and hygrometer and holds approximately 30-40 cigars.
On the more affordable side, for the globetrotter, the firm is offering the Millennium Three Finger Cigar Case ($59), beautifully handcrafted of fine leather in the Iberian Peninsula. Gadget lovers will flip for the XIKAR Cigar Cutter ($65), with an aluminum body encasing stainless steel blades in a spring-loaded, modern ergonomic shape. And the Executive Cigar Ashtray ($125) features a modernistic pewter grid above a rich mahogany base. To see more, visit NatSherman.com.
