The term "Cigar Cutter" is not a name that Selmer used, but rather is a nickname that was given to the first of the series of Super Series horns because of the unique design of the octave mechanism. This design appears to be unique to the first 2000 or so alto Supers. After that, the shape was changed back to a more conventional shape. In the words of sax historian Pete Hales:

Remember: the one thing that seperates a "Cigar Cutter" from a regular Super is the octave mechanism. If it doesn't look like a cigar cutter, it's not a "Cigar Cutter"!
