Kinkajou Bottle Cutter-Janey
Scoring Process: Insert a bottle into the Kinkajou so that the cutting wheel lines up to the desired cutting location and adjust the screws until the Kinkajou grasps the bottle firmly but still allows it to easily turn. Engage the cutting wheel and rotate the bottle one complete turn ONLY. You will hear our signature “Kinkajou Click” once the rotation is complete.
Separation Process: Place a separation tie on each side of the score line and pour alternating streams of boiling and cold water to stress the glass. The Kinkajou can handle thick and thin bottles just fine however thicker glass may require more cycles of boiling and cold water to force the separation.
Finishing Process: Your Kinkajou kit includes 3 sheets of 80-grit sandpaper. This sandpaper will easily remove any sharp edge but if you’re looking for that gorgeous, polished edge, we highly recommend our Saber Tooth Diamond Sanding Pad Kit. We tend to cut bottles with attractive painted labels because preserving paper labels is a challenge. The variety of bottles is endless, and so are the projects you can create with the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter.
Please note the instructions above are a quick summary. Refer to the Instruction Manual included in your kit for safety and operational procedures.
1 kinkajou bottle cutter
2 silicone separation ties (fits all bottle sizes)
1 glass finishing tool
3 pieces of silicon carbide sandpaper (80 grit)

Day 2: I was able to make some successful cuts. One key tip that helped me was to put the cutter flat on a table so the bottle is on its side (horizontal) and the bolts are standing upright. That helped me rotate the bottle with more control of the cut. Now that I have the cut straight, my next problem is getting the glass on a wine bottle to separate. The thickness of wine bottles might be too much for the blade cut. Some bottles come apart better than others. It hasn't been consistent, but not giving up.
Day 3: I found a way to split wine bottles better than the instructions. As I mentioned, wine bottles are too thick to separate by pouring hot/cold water on the seam. A better way is to fill the wine bottle with cold water after you cut, dump the water out, then pour hot water in the bottle. It splits much easier. I leaned the bottle at a 45 degree angle, put towels under the bottle so the glass wouldn't crash in the sink, then poured really hot water in the bottle slowly. It split almost immediately.
One other tip, the bottle cutter is designed to fit around bottles that are the same circumference throughout the body of the bottle, like a standard wine bottle. But standard bottles are kinda boring. You can still bottles that have varying circumferences if you take a black marker at make a straight line around the bottle, then cut along the line. It helps to have a guide line to keep your cut straight.
