Blunts originally got their name from their "broad or rounded tip", and were named as such in the 19th century to differentiate them from other cigars with a tapered, pointed tip.<ref>[http://cigars.about.com/od/history/a/cigarhistory.htm about.com - A Taste of Cigar History]</ref> Blunts are a specific size cigar that have been so popular as to have been once sold in specific vending machines.<ref>[http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/2748227 Antique Phillies Blunt Cigar Vending Machine]</ref> The original blunt cigar was manufactured in Philadelphia out of a single leaf outer tobacco wrapper. At the time this was the only cigar wrapped in one continuous leaf, other cigars used pieces of leaves for their outer wrapper. Tobacco leaves naturally taper at the ends. Since this cigar was rolled in one leaf the end would taper and had a round appearance (thus leading to the Blunt name). Due to the popularity of this style of cigar many other Blunts were launched into the marketplace. Older brands of blunts include: [[Altadis|Antonio Y Cleopatra]], [[Backwoods (cigar brand)|Backwoods]], [[Dutch Masters (cigar)|Dutch Masters]], [[Altadis|El Producto]], [[Swedish Match|Game]], [[Swedish Match|Garcia Y Vega]], [[Swisher Sweets|King Edward]], [[Swisher Sweets|Optimo]], [[Phillies (cigar)|Phillies]], [[Swisher Sweets|Pom Pom]], [[Swisher Sweets]], [[Altadis|Tampa Nugget]], and [[White Owl]].<ref>[http://www.cigargroup.com/cigardb.htm Cigar Brands List]</ref> Other brands include: [[Black & Mild]], [[Swisher Sweets|BlackStone]], [[Altadis|Hav-A-Tampa]] (discontinued in 2009), Hood Wraps, Keep Moving, Supre Sweets, [[Altadis|Tampa Sweet]], and Treez Wrap. These types of cigars are commonly sold in [[convenience store]]s, [[Filling station|gas stations]], [[grocery store]]s, and [[Community pharmacy|drugstores]], in contrast to premium cigars, which are sold in cigar shops. Blunts burn quickly like cigarettes, and one can be smoked in about five minutes, whereas a premium cigar takes an hour or so to burn. Unlike premium cigars, blunts are either already cut or have a hole in the mouth end for the smoke to go through, and so they do not need to be cut at the mouth end. Blunts are also significantly cheaper than premium cigars.

Over time the term Blunt came to describe any cigar wrapped in a single continuous leaf. However in the 1970s a new manner of producing cigars was invented. This manner is known as spiral binding.<ref>[http://www.cigarmachinery.com/ SCM - Machinery to get the most out of tobacco]</ref><ref>[http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/wo.jsp?wo=1996014761 (WO/1996/014761) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR WRAPPING A ROD OF SMOKING MATERIAL], WIPO</ref> No longer did cigars have to be rolled in a continuous single leaf but instead a continuous spiral wrap from base to tip could be employed. The basic shape of a blunt remained unchanged although the burn characteristics of a spiral wrapped cigar is not the same as a single continuous leaf. However spiral wrapping is much less expensive than using a full single tobacco leaf. Spiral wrapping gives a better seal than a single continuous leaf as overlapping can be done (much like wrapping an arm in a bandage, spiral wrapping is easier to seal than a single continuous bandage).<ref>[http://www.madehow.com/Volume-3/Cigar.html How cigar is made]</ref>
