Here is an antique Star Tobacco tobacco cutter or trimmer. It is made of cast iron and is very rusty throughout. The cutter still functions, but is being sold primarily as a collector's item. Some remnants of the original black paint still show through the rust. The cutter is marked with decorative embossed stars as well as the digits 3019. The bottom is marked 5837. There appears to be other writing on the bottom, but it is obscured by the rust. There are measuring lines on the cutting platform marking one and two inch lengths. There is a mounting hole at each end so the cutter can be secured to a surface for easy use.
