Product Description

1 x Full Tin of 50 Capstan Medium Strength Navy Cut, 1 x Empty Tin

The Capstan brand was initially established in 1894 by W.D. & H.O. Wills, a British tobacco company. The name "Capstan" was inspired by the capstan, a vertical-axled rotating machine used on sailing ships to raise anchors. The brand aimed to evoke a sense of nautical tradition and adventure.

The term "Navy Cut" refers to a particular method of cutting and preparing tobacco that was developed to meet the preferences of sailors in the British Royal Navy. This method involved cutting the tobacco into thin, uniform strands, which facilitated easy rolling and burning. Capstan adopted the Navy Cut technique, offering a unique smoking experience.

During the two World Wars, Capstan cigarettes became a staple among soldiers and sailors. The brand's association with the Navy and its reputation for quality made it a favored choice among military personnel. The cigarettes provided a moment of respite and familiarity during challenging times.

** The full tin contains 50 cigarettes. The tin has a couple of very small holes that have caused the tin to lose its airtight seal, other than this the tin is in excellent condition***
