The original Crafters Hot Knife came to market in 2001 and was released to meet the needs of the light duty industrial market plus hobby & craft markets including theater props and sets. Since its premier, the Crafter's Hot Knife has been sold all over the world. "The Crafter's Hot Knife brings a new dimension to the modeler's table for carving many types of foam. The knife makes plunge cuts into blocks and shapes possible. Bow cutters cannot make the plunge cuts. The maneuverability of the knife is superior to anything else that I have found on the market," says Miles Hale, Master Model Railroader, Vice President Association of Professional Model Makers. The most distinguishing difference of The Crafters Hot Knife is the rigid and solid, 6" Stainless Steel blade. It slices quickly and cleanly through high-density foam without bending, warping or breaking like common wire cutters. A retro, easy grip, wooden handle beautifully accents the Stainless Steel blade. Temperature is controlled by the user with a "dead man's switch" that delivers the power up to 750 degrees fahrenheit temperatures. This light/medium duty tool will shut down to cool instead of burning out after 5-10 minutes of continual use. The user can extend the operating time once familiar with the power switch operations.
When it cuts, it cuts nice, but it had to cool down way too often, like after every 8-10 feet cut. It's OK, I'm glad I have it, just need to leave more time for the cutting.Published on May 29, 2013 by Pal Molnar
didn't maintain hot heat for my needs - cutting and sealing 1/8 shock cord

This little tool is a must have for anyone crafting with large pieces of foam. It saves time, energy, and frustration. Read morePublished on January 22, 2012 by donnie hatcher
I had to cut 1 inch thick 8 foot long styrofoam boards with foil on both sides.
This knife easily cut through at a good speed. I used a board to make the cuts straight.
