(Cl. 131—13) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in cigar holders and has for its primary object to pro vide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, novel means the spike 5 is inserted longitudinally in the cigar 7 through the usual opening or passage 15 in the rear end portion of said cigar. With the 'bit or mouthpiece 8 protruding longitudinally from the rear end of the cigar 7, the device is ready for use in an obvious manner. Of course, the prongs or barbs 13 anchor the holder ?rmly in the cigar. The longitudinal grooves or channels 12, ensure a free flow of smoke along the holder to the mouth of the user. The bit or mouthpiece 8‘ is of circular cross‘ whereby a cigar may be ?rmly held without the necessity 10 section permitting the cigar to be freely turned in the of clamping same between the teeth, thus preventing in mouth. However, the construction and arrangement is advertent chewing and consequent mutilation of the cigar such as to positively prevent turning of the cigar on the in addition to preventing tobacco and juice therefrom spike 5. As shown to advantage in FIGURE 2 of the from getting into the mouth of the smoker. drawing, the neck 9 of the bit 8 is clamped between the Another very important object of the present invention 15 teeth of the smoker leaving the rear or ‘butt end portion is to provide an improved cigar holder of the character of the cigar free to be embraced between the lips. In described which embodies a unique construction for en addition to providing a holder, the device functions as suring the free passage of smoke to the mouth of the a reinforcement for the cigar. The recesses 14 left in the spike 5 when the anchoring prongs 13 are struck Still another important object of this invention is to 20 therefrom are adapted to receive the material of the provide a cigar holder of the type referred to which may cigar which is displaced by said prongs should the holder be readily made from a single piece of suitable wood. be pulled rearwardly in a manner to drive said prongs Another object of the invention is to provide an im into the cigar. Thus, the holder is even more ?rmly proved cigar holder of the aforementioned character anchored in the cigar. The holder may carry any de 25 sired advertising or other matter. Furthermore, the which, when in use in the mouth, will be invisible. user. , Other objects of the invention are to provide an im proved cigar holder which will be comparatively simple, 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 panying drawing forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which: FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of an improved cigar holder constructed in accordance with the present in vention; FIGURE 2 is a side elevational view of the device in use; FIGURE 3 is a view in longitudinal section through the inner portion of a cigar having mounted therein a holder embodying the present invention; and holder may be produced at a cost which will make it 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 40 on the rear end of the spike, and a plurality of rear wardly divergent prongs integral with the spike for an choring same in the cigar, said spike including a pene trating point on .its forward end and having circumfer FIGURE 4 is a view in transverse section through the entially spaced longitudinal grooves therein providing device, taken substantially on the line 4~—4 of FIG smoke channels between the point and the bit, said bit URE 1. including a reduced neck of circular cross-section having Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen communication with the grooves. that the embodiment of the invention which has been 2. A cigar holder comprising a spike for insertion illustrated comprises a spike or shank 5 of suitable wood longitudinally in a cigar from the rear end thereof, a bit 50 such as white pine. The spike 5, which may also be of on the rear end of the spike, and a plurality of rear any suitable dimensions, is of circular cross-section as wardly divergent prongs integral with the spike for an shown to advantage in FIGURE 4 of the drawing. choring same in the cigar, said spike including a pene 'The forward end portion of the spike 5 tapers to a trating point on its forward end and having circumferen point 6 to facilitate inserting said spike longitudinally tially spaced longitudinal grooves therein providing smoke mouthpiece 8 includes a neck portion 9 which terminates mouth and further including an elongated head of cir 1nto a conventional cigar, as indicated at 7, from the 55 channels between the point and the bit, said bit including rear end thereof. Formed integrally with the rear end a reduced neck of circular cross-section having communi of the spike 5 is a bit or mouthpiece 8. The bit or cation with the grooves, said bit being rotatable in the cular cross-section integral with the neck. in an elongated head 10 having a depression or recess 60 11 in its free end. 3. A cigar holder comprising a wooden spike of cir cular cross-section including a penetrating point on one Formed longitudinally in the spike 5 and extending end for insertion longitudinally in a cigar from the rear from the junctures of the point '6 and the neck 9 there end thereof, a bit of circular cross-section integral with or channels 12. Struck as by shaving or whittling from 65 the other end of the spike, said bit comprising a neck portion and an elongated head integral with said neck the spike 5 between the grooves or channels 12 are rear with are equidistantly circumferentially spaced grooves wardly divergent anchoring prongs or barbs 13. When the anchoring prongs or barbs are thus struck from the spike 5 longitudinally elongated recesses or depressions 14 are left in said spike beneath said prongs. It is thought that the use of the holder will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing.
