What a great knife!
I own Joseph Edward an upholstery shop in Niceville, Florida. And this knife has been just hands down the best hot knife out there. Other much higher priced cutters don't come with the blade or foot for cutting. That's an extra $65-$85 each on top of the price for the unit, $245.

I love that this has a control for how hot you want to cut your fabric. Currently I'm cutting over 100 yds. of Sunbrella awning fabric for a job. And This cutter has made quick work of that. Just be sure to keep the blade and foot clean of any burnt cuttings and build up. This is very easy with the brass brush that comes with the unit in it's case. While the knife is still hot, just brush any burnt cuttings away.

Overall this is just a great tool, and has held up to some very demanding use in my workroom.
Thank you for your time.

I bought this tool about three years ago and have used it to cut mostly Sunbrella and similar fabrics. Didn't get a lot of use and it was good when I needed it, but then it went down for the count. Pulled the trigger, got a flash of light and it became a paperweight. I spoke to a representative from Demand Products and she very nice but told me there was nothing they could do... don't fix them and, unless it was under warranty, they don't replace them. Then Customer Service replied to the e-mail I sent and said they would take a look at it, so I shipped it to Georgia. After examining it, they said it was not repairable and suggested I buy another one.

In the meantime, I borrowed another hot knife (Engle) from a friend. This one was more expensive but it heats up faster and cuts way better. The Demand knife was almost always on the highest setting and was still pretty slow cutting through Sunbrella awning fabric. I mentioned this to the Customer Service rep at Demand and they said they have made some improvements to the tool since I bought mine.

Bottom line: my knife was OK and lasted three years with light usage then quit. I'm not that impressed, particularly now that I've tried another brand, and while I like the folks I talked with at Demand I'm not buying another one from them. It's OK for light duty but if you're serious about cutting a lot of fabric there are better tools available.

I don't usually write reviews, but this is a really great product. I did a lot of research and tried another heat cutting product before buying this one. We needed it for our business to cut polyester material samples (about 4"x3" and tablecloth weight material). We literally cut over 4000 samples by hand with this cutter. We used it hard over a year and just now it has stopped working. Demand Products does tell me that it has a life-span and we will probably just have to buy another one, but it worked really well for us for the year and a half. There is a little bit of a learning curve with this tool and you have to adjust the foot correctly with the material weight, but once you get it set up you just zip along. I would recommend cutting synthetic fabric in a well ventilated room and I doubled that with wearing a mask for the fumes. A good product. I a little pricey and I was hesitant at first to buy it for that reason, but it ended up performing well for a large task.

This knife not only cuts synthetic fabric, but seals the edge. The shoe underneath the blade is very useful. The knife works well with or without the shoe.

I am using it to cut marine fabric
and the hot knife seals the edges as you cut
it. This knife has an attachment that goes under the fabric
so that it pushes it up to the hot blade.
This is an excellent feature : )

The hot knife cuts and seals Sunbrella marine fabric very well. I think the storage case could have been a little bigger to accommodate the tool with the blade attached. Also, the velcro strap for storing the power cord could have been a little longer and the instructions could have been better considering the price of the tool. Overall, the tool is a good value, considering the price of similar hot knives on the market.

Update: After using it to cut Sunbrella fabric for three projects, the tool has essentially become a paper weight. Pull the trigger and the indicator comes on, but no heat. As others have stated, it does not last long.

I just used my fabric cutter for the first time yesterday. I bought it to cut and seal the hems on 9 ballet costumes, and it worked like a dream. The instructions are clear, the knife is easy to use, and it worked beautifully. I think it's going to be a super useful tool. It also arrived quickly!

I absolutely love this tool. It's made Sunbrella so much easier and neater to cut. Highly recommend it to anyone working with acrylic fabrics. An end the excellent product in every way. I do suggest putting a white mark on the control dial when you've found the heat you like to work with so you don't lose it and get too hot.
