About S.T. Dupont
The House of S.T. Dupont opened in France in 1872. The founder of the brand, Simon Tissot-Dupont was born in Savoy in 1847. S.T. Dupont owes its initials to him.

In 1884, Simon Tissot-Dupont became the supplier of one of the world’s largest shops – Les Grands Magasins du Louvre – while maintaining his private clientele. Simon Tissot Dupont handed over his company to his sons in 1919, Lucien and Andre, who, trading under the name of Les Fils de S.T. Dupont (the Sons of S.T. Dupont) re launch the company. The company was focused on high quality travel cases and accessories. Highly qualified craftsmen are called upon and patents are taken out to protect industrial secrets. 250 workers and 17 separate trades are involved in the manufacture: goldsmiths, woodworkers, engravers, leather craftsmen, enamel workers, locksmiths, etc. S.T.

The Nat Sherman Panamericana is manufactured in Esteli, Nicaragua by the Plasencia Family.  Packed in understated slide-top boxes of ten cigars, the four-format line is:
                Secretos  4” x 40  $85.00 per box of ten cigars (plus taxes)
