    Lооks likе this might bе а "dесеnt" fаkе соnsidеring it's nоt just fillеd with trimmings аnd sаwdust/flооr swееpings? It fеlt а littlе оily tо thе tоuсh but thе smеll wаsn't аnything spесiаl, prоbаbly а fаdеd lеаthеr with а hint оf rubbеr?

    This seems like something that takes a fair amount of skill. I would have to learn and practice quite a bit to feel comfortable here.

    One sure sign that a product is fake is when the price is significantly lower than the original product. Is that the case? If yes then it's quite obvious that they're selling fake cigars.

    Exactly, the price can be a great indicative of the authenticity and the quality of the product.

    @jakub1, That's true in most cases, although sometimes the seller sells it at the same price so that it will look "original", like Micro SD cards for example.
