SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 266,007, dated October 17, 1882,

Application filed February 24, 1882. (No model.)

T all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JONATHAN BADGER, a citizen of Great Britain, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Smokers Implements, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawlugs.

The object of this invention is to provide a new and useful implement for smoker-is use.

My invention consists in two pieces of steel orother suitable material riveted together near the center, so as to form at one end springclamps operated by asliding ring for the purpose of grasping and holding the end of a cigar or cigarette While smoking, the other end being broadened out into spring-clamps having the ends bent over, one of the bent portions having a circular opening to receive a portion of the cigar, while the other bent end has a knife-edge, so that by inserting the pointed end of the cigar into the circular hole the knife-edge may he pressed with the fingers, so as to cut off a portion of the tip of the cigar.

This invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l represents a perspective view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a plan view, showing the implement used as a cigar-holder.

A A are the pieces of steel or other suitable material, which may be coated as desired.

a. a are the rivets securing the two pieces together near their centers.

0 is the sliding ring used to press together the curved clamping ends d d.

e is the hole to receive the tip of the cigar during the act of cutting, andfis the cuttingedge or knife.

This combined device is cheap and simple in construction, easily carried in the vestpocket, and is a convenient device for cutting and holding cigars.

If desired,thecurved ends (1 d maybe shaped so as to be used as tweezers.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The combined cigar-tip cutter and cigarholder herein described, composed of two strips of elastic sheet metal, which are united intermediate of their ends and diverge in 0pposite directions, hicll are bent at one end to form tip-cuttingjaws and bent at the other end to form cigar-holding fingers, in combination with a sliding ring arranged to compress or clamp such fingers.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
