Knipex designed these slightly odd-looking cutters to cut up thin-walled plastic pipes and hoses. They cut from the middle of the hose out, so you don’t need to reposition or make more than one stroke with the blade.

The blade point hits the hose or pipe from the center and cuts cleanly through with both edges of the blade as you apply pressure.  It cuts hose or pipe with exterior diameter up to 1”.  In a pinch it could probably handle something like copper pipe or wire cable, but smaller auto hoses or garden hose will part like butter.

    Looks like a great tool for plastic pipe, but this would crush copper pipe out of round even if it could cut it. The blade would get ruined too. If you own this tool you probably already have a copper pipe cutter.

    Looks like the Lisle LIS11420, auto techs like me have used these for years for cutting heater and AC hoses quickly and evenly, without the risk of cutting yourself. The Lisle is not really designed for PVC though. Snap on sells a Blue Point version that looks exactly like the Lisle LIS11420, just costs more.
