Best tool I ever bought!

Great product


Excellent tool, heats up fast cuts well and easy to use

Awesome tool.


Spectacular. Cuts synthetics like butter. Great tool.

Very useful


A friend let me try his hot knife and I had to have one of my own. This works fantastic for cutting Sunbrella. The edges are very nicely sealed and do not fray. I tried to use the foot when cutting, but I do not find it very useful. It cuts slower, and still puts burn light marks in the underlying surface. It is also hard to keep an adjustment that does not touch the side of the blade. I now use an old piece of fiberglass to cut against. I wouldn't recommend the fiberglass, as it still burns it, but at least it doesn't smoke like wood. I'm looking for a small long piece of Formica. Before I bought this knife, I modified an old wood-burning set to cut with. This Sailrite knife works so much faster. It's so hot that you have to keep letting off the trigger as you work on a long cut. I put this as a must for anyone who is interested in sewing canvas and doesn't want to roll every exposed seam.

Thanks for another helpful tool

Wish I had it even earlier throughout all my projects. Plan to use it all the time now.

The Hotknife Rules


What a great product. I've built a dodger using a Sailrite kits in the past using a soldering iron with an attached blade tip to do the cutting. It worked but it wasn't until I got the Hotknife for some new projects that I found out what I was missing. It heats up quickly and maneuvers around curves and corners with ease.

This is a great product and works excellent on fabrics that ravel like nylon. It's also good for cutting line.

Excellent tool


Cuts material like butter, like I knew it would coming from Sailrite.

Cuts fabric well, a little underpowered

Cuts fabric well, a little underpowered. I wish there were a way to adjust heat manually.

Tired of dull knives?....Lighters?....Burned fingers? You need this!


I bought an old fishing boat this spring and have been replacing all the worn out lines etc. This tool makes it a snap.

Looking forward to getting an old sailboat that needs love and I know this tool will be #1 in my kit.

Great How Too
