Tech Spec Product Info User Generated Content

EC-Cutter cordless electric scissors are specifically designed to cut tough fabrics like Aramid, Kevlar, carbon fiber cloth and more. The EC-Cutter features a light weight, ergonomic shape that eliminates the fatigue associated with manual cutting.

A powerful, long lasting rechargeable battery means there is no cord to trip over or get in the way of larger work pieces. Unique half-moon shaped blades are hardened to stay sharper longer than conventional cordless scissors.

Short, rapid strokes mean accurate, clean cuts for intricate work. The short cutting stroke makes the EC-Cutter less suitable for cutting materials thicker than 1/8 inch.

I would not recommend this product to anyone and plan to return it as "unusable".

The cutter head was on so tightly that it cannot be taken apart. I tried for several days and finally used a file to loosen it.

Now it won't work at all when you try to reattach. Very disappointing although the video recommending it was very good - BEWARE!

    I restored a 1982 13.4 coho runabout fiberglass boat, this was the 1st time I had ever work with fiberglass before. I was using scissors, that was tuff. I was talking to a friend that use to build boats, he mention that they used electric scissors! so I started looking for elect scissors and found these, WOW these scissors plowed through everything that I asked them to do. I could never done this without them, This is one of the best tools that I have ever bought and i'm 61

    Comments about EC Cutter Electric Cordless Scissors:

    I broke my wrist and was unable to use even spring scissors to do my cutting. These were so lightweight and well balanced that it took no pressure at all only guidance to cut through layers of fabric. My husband has had to help a lot with cutting and has become totally addicted to these for ease of use. I will be purchasing another when these break, so far I have had them 4 years and they are still going strong. My con was that I had to wait 6 hours for my husband to get home to take the battery and put it on the charger then into the back of the cutter, I had 0% strength to do this at first, now I have no problem.

            Comments about EC Cutter Electric Cordless Scissors:

            This is a terrible product - and vastly overpriced. The plastic is so cheap, I couldn't even change the heads. The plastic guides didn't even line up. It was so poorly made that I doubt it would last past the first use. I will never buy a tool online again. Photography can't show you how a product is made, and you can't trust reviews on this website. NO ONE who actually used this electric cutter could have given it a good review. And Jamestown Distributors should be ashamed for even carrying it. Pretty shady.

              Comments about EC Cutter Electric Cordless Scissors:

              Purchased my cutter back in 2001, and loved it ever since. Cuts through 34 ounce Triaxle e-glass, cloth, unidirectional, biaxle, peel ply, breather, plastic sheet, paper. I would have given myself carpel tunnel in my hands from cutting if it wasn't for these scissors. Granted, I was building 57' long sailboat hulls at the time. If you get resin on the cutting blades, just be sure to clean them off before the resin kicks. I always used denatured alcohol as my cleaning agent of choice for the epoxy I was using. Eventually the blades will become dull, or the gap between the 2 cutting surfaces will expand, and fabric strands of fiberglass will slip past the blade, uncut, requiring you to back track by turning the cutter 180 degrees, but this a small price to pay for the ease at which you can cut these hard to handle fiberglass materials. Replacement cutting heads are available. I have also worn out batteries over time, but replacement batteries are available, and they lasted several years before needing replacement (at least at the rate I was using them). I have tried other cheap-o electric cloth cutters, but they failed miserably against fiberglass. Also tried a scissor attachment on Rockwell oscillating saw, but they were very prone to getting uncut fibers past the blade, causing frequent reversals of direction. This is the tool, worth every $.

                  Wasn't sure about this when I ordered it, but I've got to admit it's growing on me. I still use a hot knife for fabrics that are prone to unraveling, but the electric scissors are taking the place of my shears when it comes to synthetics. The heads are not easy to change until you've done it a couple of times, and you need to make sure the drive in the handle lines up with the receiver in the head or they won't snap into place. It doesn't look like a heavy duty piece of equipment but only time will tell.
