These cutters cut through my 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Primochill tubing like butter when I was setting up my watercooling loop in my computer. With that particular tubing size, regular scissors simply would not give an all the way through, straight, clean cut. On the other hand, these cutters effortlessly cuts a straight and clean cut every time. Highly recommended for the watercooler out there.

Although I have not tried, I do not see these cutters as being very able to cut PVC or other hard pipes. These are more for tubing and softer plastic. So for my uses, it works great.

These are my favorite pipe cutters to use for installing irrigation systems. It will cut drip, funny pipe, and Class 1120 pipe up to 1" very easily. It will not cut very easily thru Sch 40 pipe unless it is 1/2" or smaller.

These are light weight and very easy to operate. The tailpiece clip ring holds the handles securely together to keep it closed and at the same time is fast and easy to open. The compact size makes it great to store in a pants pocket or bucket to carry around with you as you work. The blade is very sharp. I also use it to slit and remove tubing that is stuck on a hose barb as it is as sharp as a utility knife blade. They rinse off easily under running water and do not rust.

5 star rating. They are a little pricey on Amazon at nearly $20 but they do last for quite a while and you can sharpen the blade. After the blade won't sharpen very well anymore I usually just purchase a new pair as the handles are usually showing wear by then. But if you break a blade or need a new one for some reason they do sell a replacement blade Ridgid 26803 PC-1250 Replacement Blade. Hope this review helps.

This is a quick tool best used for PEX or other soft plastic pipe. It allows clean 90° cuts in confined spaces. For PVC cuts try a ratchet style cutter with a thicker blade.

.. and takes a little concerted effort, but time will tell if it holds up. I actually called Ridgid to get their suggested PVC cutter which would give me a clean and even cut and this was it for this specific pipe (which is likely all I will ever use it for). It does give a clean cut but just seems weak and takes a bit too much effort for the task, but I just take it easy and relatively slow. I previously used an Apollo ratcheting pipe cutter which worked much more quick and effortless, but the Apollo would not cut even and left burrs .. the Ridgid does not. Danny

It's a quick, cheap and reliable tool for tubing ... it is NOT good for any sort of pipe or PVC though.

Very consistent and good like all plastic pipe cutters. if you use these a lot like i do, you'll want to get spare blades upfront. over time the plasic starts to wobble at the hinge which causes the blade to cut at a slight angle and eventually break. it's normal and the blade that comes standard with this particular tool is thick and seems to last a few weeks longer than most however its all about the pricing deal you can get on this one.

1. A great anti suprise is that the handles are made of plastic. There was no material description, so the picture led me to assume that it's made of some sort of metal. IMHO, metal handles withstand the twists of fate easier.
2. The description page says it's made in USA. The package says it's CHINA.
3. If I knew the above two facts, I'd go for smth else.

Naturally, scissors cut. No much else to say.

Soooooo much better than using a hack saw or utility knife. If you have any tubing work to do--this tool is definitely worth the price. IMHO, it's a little flimsy to use for PVC--but it's perfect for pex tubing or the like.
