For professional, long lasting results, braided sleeving should be cut with a hot knife or similar instrument to cut and seal the ends to prevent fraying during installation and use. This Handheld Hot Knife is Perfect for individual projects or small volume production. The large knife blade heats quickly and easily cuts and seals most grades of braided sleeving. Sleeving, arts and crafts, foam, and other items can be cut with this heated blade to give you the perfect cut and look on your professional or hobby projects.
These hot knives are, you guess it, hand held! (You did guess it right?) These knives are lightweight and ideal for users who do not have a dedicated workspace and are always on the go. In addition to their portability they are also versatile in the amount of different materials they are able to cut. If that’s not enough perks, hand held hot knife varieties are often the most economical option for hot knife users. Unlike their bench mount counterparts, hand held knives require a bit more skill and practice for effective use because they are not as stable as mounted alternatives. This also means the cutting area is smaller than bench mount varieties limiting the size of the items you can cut. Hand Held hot knives are intended for brief, or intermittent use and if left on for extended periods of time can overheat requiring a cool down break.
