This invention relates to new and useful improvements
in cigar holders and has for its primary object to pro

course, the prongs or barbs 13 anchor the holder ?rmly
in the cigar. The longitudinal grooves or channels 12,

Other objects of the invention are to provide an im

in construction, strong, durable, compact, of light weight
and which may be manufactured at low cost.
These together with other objects and advantages which
will become subsequently apparent reside in the details
of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter
described and claimed, reference being had to the accom

economically feasible to discard the device after a single
use, if desired.
The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the
principles of the invention. Further, since numerous
modi?cations and changes will readily occur to those
skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention
to the exact construction and operation shown and de
scribed, and accordingly all suitable modifications and
35 equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope
of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed as new is as follows:
1. A cigar holder comprising a spike for insertion
longitudinally in a cigar from the rear end thereof, a bit
