Description:

Born in the USA and actually used in the service, our Ammo Can Humidor is unlike any other And it isn't just for show. We have tested it in our own labs and found that it holds perfect humidity for 30-50 cigars, depending on sizes!

(Yes, we actually tested it, and yes, it passed with flying colors.)

Speaking of “flying colors,” you can have this humidor laser-engraved with your call sign or emblem, and you can also put a message on the inside lid if you want to have a love note written on the inside, just for your special someone to see!

Now featuring two variations: Refurbished Vs. Authentic. Getting feedback from our customers is imperative. Here’s what you’ve told us: ‘I would never want a refurbished one, I’d only want a battle-warn, authentic, used-and-seen-some-action can! Like I saw when I was in the service!’ So all that time we spent making some of these pretty, and you’d rather have them with a bit of rust, and bang-ups on there? Oh. We had no idea. Why did we kill ourselves to make them look like new? Wish we’d had this conversation earlier…

So now we’re offering both kinds. You choose your favorite, and that’s what we’ll ship to you! Authentic or Refurbished.

How do we get these? Well the military uses them in combat. When they are emptied and no longer needed they are shipped to a Military Surplus location and auctioned off. We paid for them, drove for hours to go get the suckers and bring them back. Then they were rinsed and cleaned by our local Marine recruits!

Each Ammo Can Humidor was then dried with an air-gun and left out to dry in the hot Florida sun.

When finished baking, they are lined with Spanish Cedar, which is ordered from a local wood mill, cut by hand and installed by a Veteran, making each purchase a great way to support the men and women of the armed forces. (Ordering from a military surplus auction, ALSO a great way to support the military).

You don’t go into battle unprepared, and you shouldn't go into a weekend unprepared, either. Pick up this humidor and you’ll be ready for whatever backyard relaxation requires. Or take the Ammo Can with you on your next adventure - its airtight and watertight features make this the perfect humidor to brave the elements with you! Even if it's just on your boat fishing!

How to Buy a Humidor: A 5 Point Guide

Humidors come in many styles. You can choose a humidor with trays, high gloss finish, with legs, etc. There are so many to choose from, that you need to know the basics to ensure you are getting a good quality box that will preservce your cigars for years to come.

1. Size

You want to start off with a humidor that is at least 50% larger than you think you will need because inevitably you will start to store more cigars. It is better to plan ahead. Remember you can put fewer cigars in a large humidor but you can't put more in a small one!

2. Seal

You want to make sure that when you close the lid of the humidor that it makes a nice whoose sound as it closes. If it puffs or whooshed when it closes, you are golden. when purchasing online, and you can't actually see or touch the humidor, it is important to ask the proprieter if their humidors whoosh when they close. I am sure you know where I am going with this. All of the humidors we offer close with a nice whoosh. Keep in mind that humidors with glass tops and heavy wood are not going to whoosh. That doesn't mean they are bad, the lids are just too heavy to displace the whoosh of air.

3. Liner

Quality cigar humidors have a Spanish Cedar lining. It's chosen because it can handle the humidity required without warping. Anything else inside a humidor is silly. You want the cedar to be kiln dried, which means they literally dry it out to remove all the sap. This prevents a icky mess on all your cigars. Insert whatever Clinton joke you want to here. But seriously, Spanish Cedar is where it is at. The indians used to use it to build boats because it is water friendly. The cedar should also be non-aromatic. This isn't the cedar you put in a gerbil cage or a closet. This is a different cedar. It doesn't smell.

4. Style

Make sure that your choice of humidor complements your own personal style. There really isn't too much to say here. If you don't like it on the desk or whever you are going to put it, it doesn't really matter how well it works. I mean, if a world famous chef made you spaghetti and colored it blue you probably wouldn't eat it. So why would you want an ugly ass humidor sitting on your desktop?

5. Quality

Ensure that the humidor is good quality. If the lid warps, or the hinges fail, the seal will be broken. Then, all you'll have is a nice-looking storage box. Always remember, "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten." That being said, price doesn't dictate quality at all. I have seen humidors costing thousands of dollars made poorer than the inexpensive boxes I sell. In fact, December 2003, Cigar Afficionado Magazine reviewed 10 or so humidors. Most of them were boxes costing thousands, yes, thousands of dollars. They also reviewed one of mine which sells for $199. My humidor got a B-, and a humidor costing over 5 times more money got a C-. So price isn't the determining factor. Make sure the hinges are good, the joinery it good, and above all, make sure it has a nice warranty or guarantee.
