Guillotine for chopping tobacco, made of a piece of wood grooved in the middle all along. In one of the ends a nail is passed to secure the knife when it is going to slice the andullo. In the middle part the wood is lowered to a size smaller than the width of the andullo which makes the knife is fixed with the last nail, giving a point of support for the tobacco to be cut in a uniform manner.

Curious fact:

Due to the proliferation of industrialized tobacco and the decline in consumption of Andullo tobacco, this type of guillotine is becoming less common.
