Everybody give a lot of importance to all kinds of accessories they use from their personal wear to their cars to their deco`s at home. In the same way even small things like Cigar ashtrays are something to be given attention to.
Important features to look for:
The simplest, most common ashtray design is that of a circle with a hollow cylindrical rim around a flat surface. Now more and more people are looking for different features in their Cigar Ashtrays. Like the size of the container, it should be large and deep enough to hold all the ash-drops that the cigar creates. You should also see that the ashtray is sturdy enough to absorb an incidental shock and also not slippery. Another important feature is that the width of the ashtray should be big enough to support a cigar on a horizontal level otherwise the cigar would be tilting down with the coal resting in the base of the tray. So, this can suffocate the one side that is touching the tray and cause the cigar to burn unevenly.
These days you would also find ashtrays with three notches at the edges, two to the width of a cigarette and one to that of the diameter of a cigar. The purpose of these notches is to provide as rests for your cigars or cigarettes while still burning. Every other minute you take a puff from your cigar you should be careful to drop the ashes in the ashtray, you surely do not want to spill the ashes everywhere .Also keep your cigar safe in the ashtray notches, obviously it will be difficult to keep your cigar in your hand the whole time when you have to do some work or get something.
