One of the most important and useful accessories for smokers is the cigarette holder. Cigarette holders are generally used by smokers to prevent smokers’ lips from touching the cigarette, and to keep their hands clean. A cigarette holder is tubular, with a broad end to receive the filtered end of the cigarette. The other end is narrow and is contoured to be held with the lips and be clenched into place with the teeth, if desired. Cigarette holders for non-filtered cigarettes are also available.
There are many kinds of cigarette holders, and cigarette lighters and cigarette cases. And like cases and lighters, they are made to add to the personality of the holder. The various materials used to make cigarette holders include wood, ivory, ebony, teak, and precious metals like gold, silver and platinum.
To add to the beauty and style of the cigarette holders, they are sometimes encrusted with diamonds or other 電子煙桿 precious stones, or have hand-sculpted embossing.
Some cigarette holders come with a manual ejection system, in which the used part of the cigarette is pushed out manually. Many modern cigarette holders come with a cigarette filter system, which might contain an acetate or charcoal-based filter. Additionally, disposable filters also come with flavors that might range from menthol to cherry. The use of acetate filters have come up to question recently, because they are said to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing).
A very famous type of cigarette holder is the telescopic variety. The telescopic or retractable cigarette holder is mostly used by women smokers, and is also used to complete the ‘Diva’ look by many celebrities. Many male smokers also prefer this kind of cigarette holder if it has been crafted to more ‘macho’ parameters. Many manufacturers offer a range of such cigarette holders.
Many high-profile cigarette manufacturers have their own line of custom-made cigarette holders, and these are in great demand by discerning smokers.
