With a knife, right? Wrong! How many times have you seen or worked with a rope that has a shaving brush end. Ropes that have been cut with a knife will quickly develop this “swarm of caterpillars” on the cut ends. This is wasteful because the rope keeps unraveling, getting shorter all the time, and it is potentially unsafe due to snagging and fouling of gear with loose nylon. There are a number of ways to cut synthetic ropes that will seal the ends preventing unraveling. Some of the more popular methods follow. Put a few turns of tape around the rope at the point that is to be cut. Using a sharp knife, cut through the tape and rope leaving tape on both sides of the cut. Then use a match or lighter to melt the cut ends. Or, heat an old knife blade to red hot and cut/melt through the rope with the heated knife. Best of all, use an electric hot knife.
Cuts and seals any size
synthetic (except Kevlar) rope, webbing or material. Stable box type
construction. Operates on 110 volts, AC with on/off switch and indicator light.
Electric Hot Knives greatly simplify the chore of cutting rope. Blade heats up
to red hot and melts its way through the synthetic material. Automatically heat
seals both cut ends‑no more fooling around with tape and lighters.
