A hotknife is a helpful tool that creates clean cuts without fraying or unraveling in synthetic fabrics and other synthetic materials like rope and webbing. These tools use high-heat to cut and heat-seal the edges of the material as they go. We offer the Sailrite® Edge Hotknife, which is a user-friendly hotknife package that includes a carrying case, cutting foot, R-blade and more. A portable take on the popular tool, our Sailrite® Edge Cordless Hotknife is the epitome of ease and convenience when it comes to cutting and sealing synthetic materials! We also offer another hotknife option, the Engel Hotknife, as well as hotknife accessories including specialty cutting feet, tips and screws.

The Sailrite Edge Hotknife and the Edge Cordless Hotknife are great tools to have on hand for canvasworkers, sailmakers and crafters alike. These easy-to-use tools cut and seal the edges of materials that would typically unravel when cut with scissors. If you’re working with fabric, rope or webbing made of synthetic materials such as acrylic, nylon, polyester or other synthetics that are likely to unravel, our Sailrite hotknives will help you create a clean cut. The Sailrite Edge Cordless Hotknife possesses the same great capabilities but is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack for cordless freedom no matter where you want to go. Buy the Sailrite Edge Hotknife or the Sailrite Edge Cordless Hotknife as part of a bundle that includes the knife, an R-blade, a cutting foot, a wire brush, a hex key and a plastic carrying case.

If you already own our hotknife, upgrade it with hotknife accessories from We offer a great selection of hotknife blades as well as our Sailrite Tempered Cutting Glass which makes for a great base when cutting materials.
