Blunt Splitter Definition
A blunt splitter is a tool used for making marijuana blunts. A blunt splitter is also known as a blunt cutter, which is different to a cigar tip cutter ( which is used by cigar smokers to cut off the tip of the cigar prior to smoking ). A blunt splitter tool is a plastic or metal circular tube that allows a cigar to pass through it, the blunt splitter has a razor blade positioned on the inside that sticks out slightly on the inside of the blunt splitter, this cuts the tobacco wrapper down the length of the cigar as it passes through the blunt splitter.
When making a blunt you start of with a cigar or cigarillo full of tobacco, you want to remove the tobacco leaf wrapper from around the cigar or cigarillo and reuse it by filling it with weed, this is a weed blunt. To do this you need to cut open the cigar without damaging the tobacco leaf wrapper outside of the cigar, this way you can reuse the tobacco leaf outside and fill it with marijuana to make your blunt.
Method: Using a Blunt Splitter.
You select a cigar or cigarillo the size of the finished blunt you are looking to make, the size of the cigar you choose also depends on the amount of marijuana you have to use in your blunt. Next push the cigar you are going to use for your blunt through the blunt splitter tube, the razor blade cuts the tobacco wrapper down the length of the cigar without damaging the outer leaf wrapper that holds the tobacco inside the cigar. Once the cigar is cut down its length on one side you gently pry open the sides and remove the tobacco from the inside of the cigar by removing it with a butter knife, your finders or a pair of tweezers, holding the cigar at an angle and pushing the tobacco out so it slides out of the cigar is often also a good way of doing it. All you have left is the outer tobacco leaf wrapper ready to fill with the weed you have organized.

Alternatives to Using a Blunt Splitter:
There are a few alternatives to using a blunt splitter, These include:
1. Cutting your cigar down it length by hand with a small pair of small sharp scissors ( like nail scissors ). The disadvantage of this is you rarely have a straight line cut down the length of your cigar and it is a lot more difficult to prepare your blunt as you often damage the tobacco wrapper around the cigar.
2. A sharp razor blade is another method you can use to prepare you cigar for making a blunt, you do this by cutting down the length of the cigar with the razor blade and making sure you don’t cut the entire cigar in half, also do this slowly as it is difficult to cut a straight line down the length of the cigar. A handy razor blade that you can use can come from your old razor blade. You can get the razor out with a butter knife and then cut down the side of the cigar. The good thing is that you should not have to go to these lengths as everyone can afford a few dollars to buy a good blunt splitter.
