Terry took up cigar smoking 8 years ago when he changed many things in his life, choosing a sober of way life. He and his friends would sit around and enjoy their cigars and the fellowship that a good cigar brings out. He would smoke with a toothpick to get the full enjoyment from his cigars. Finding that the toothpick would burn, he moved to a turkey needle… Sitting one day he glance at the turkey needle and the idea for Havana Saver was born.
