The award-winning Mares XR Line Cutter Ceramic in Pouch is a compact and safe cutting tool with two sharp straight ceramic blades to quickly and easily cut through line and webbing. It was developed for divers, mariners, mountaineers, extreme sports adventurers and rescue service providers who demand a tool that delivers a swift, safe, efficient cut. There are numerous activities from scuba diving to parachuting that require an emergency cutting tool as a mandatory piece of equipment, to be carried on every activity specifically for self-rescue or for the assistance of others.
ScubaLab Testers Choice 2018:
We don't usually award a Testers Choice in categories with no competition. But this little cutter was in a class of its own. Our gripe with traditional cutters has been rusting steel blades that require constant replacement. These ceramic blades won't rust, and they are sharp, cutting with ease the heavy weed cutter line that stymied most of the knives in our test (this was the only tool to earn a perfect cutting score). So we tried cutting two lines at once: no problem. Then we did four, then six, then eight. The owner's manual notes that ceramic blades aren't made for cutting wire; still, we made dozens of wire cuts before we were finally able to break a blade. Low-maintenance and capable, the Ceramic Line Cutter was our Testers' Choice for cutting tools.
The Ceramic Blades will not corrode like steel blades. They hold a strong edge for a reliable tool for when you need it. The design of the Cutter covers the blade so you reduce the risk of cutting yourself or gear accidentally but you can cut through line and webbing quickly but if you need to cut something larger you can open one side to expose the serrated blade.
The Mares XR Hand Line Cutter Ceramic comes with a nylon webbing pouch that can be mounted on standard 5.1 cm (2") nylon webbing, making it easy to attach to your BCD, weight belt or another webbing of your equipment.
When coupled with the dedicated bag supplied along with the velcro handle, the Mares XR Hand Line-Cutter Ceramic becomes a must-have for all divers!
