The Sailrite® Edge Hotknife is designed to separate and cut lengths of synthetic fabric, rope and webbing (i.e. acrylic, nylon, polyester, etc.) that would unravel when cut with scissors. The hot cutting blade cuts quickly and precisely and provides a clean, sealed edge. The Sailrite Edge is trigger-operated and heats to a maximum temperature of 400°C in 4-6 seconds. A great tool for cruisers, the Edge Hotknife has a max power draw of 60 watts and will easily run off of an inverter. Always cut on an insulated cutting surface like glass, mirror or Formica for a cleaner cut, or use with the cutting foot. The Tempered Cutting Glass for Hotknife (#121915) is the perfect companion to the Edge Hotknife.
Warranty: Sailrite warrants this hotknife (with exception of the blades) for a period of 1 year starting from the date of sale. The guarantee is given against defects in material and workmanship.

The Sailrite Difference
There are a lot of look-alike corded hotknives on the market today. Here’s why Sailrite’s hotknife is the only one you should choose:
- The metal screw bridge, where the blade attaches to the handle, is thicker on our hotknife. We made this change because it was easy to strip the screws on the thinner screw bridge — and then the whole tool was shot.
- Our hotknife has a longer cord, so you aren’t forced to use an extension cord.
- We’ve greatly improved the cord connection point — it won’t disconnect and require repair.
- The internal electronics of our hotknife are much safer. You can leave a Sailrite hotknife plugged in or operate it without worrying about injury or damage.
- If our hotknife fails, the warranty actually takes care of it. We support what we sell here at Sailrite.
- You get clear instructions and use videos straight from us.

An amazing asset to my tool collection.
I am so amazed with just how easy this hot knife works. It is like cutting butter. I am so very glad that I decided to purchase and add this amazing tool to my collection. I received my order in the mail only 3 days after placing my order on sailrite.com With such great ordering/shipping service from Sailrite and the product just being amazing, I have already referred people to your website to buy. I followed your direction to make the 30 minute box cushion and using this Hot knife definitely made my project time less than usual.
I knew I needed the Hot Knife for a while and finally took a deep breath and ordered it. Love how fast and finished my cuts of Sunbrella are now. Several fun Hot Knife projects are waiting my winter sailing down-time
By including a rugged carrying case in the kit which Sailrite has assembled for the hot knife your company has shown an understanding of the practical needs of such a product.
Great value! Great product!
Works better then other brands and is a great price!
This is one of those tools you have to have but seldom use. I like that it heats up fast and cools down more quickly.
I am making cushions with upholstery fabric for my bench seat with piping. I would never be successful without this Hotknife. I am not professional, and I can use this tool with ease. At first I was afraid of how hot the knife got, but, it heats and cools almost immediately and I have full control of both. Having this tool makes me want to do more upholstery and I never thought I’d hear myself say that!
No more fraying fabrics for furniture fabrics!
This is a such time-saver, it does the job fast and leaves no fraying! I love it!!
This thing works
Opened the box, mounted the blade, and started cutting sunbrella. The thing heats up quite quickly and readily. The key is to feel the knife hit the surface underneath and then release the trigger. Keep pushing the tool (not the trigger) until you feel it ride up on the material. Repeat. If you leave the trigger on too long, the cut will be scalloped as you melted the material instead of simply cutting and sealing. This thing is the real deal.
Love my new hot knife
The hot knife is really nice, I just did a platform bench cushion and it was so nice to not have to deal with fraying edges! I also used it to make a couple throw pillows and it eliminated the need to serge the raw edges of my seams! Highly recommend!
Easy to use & didn't need a special table or board to protect surfaces. Was able to cut out 12 cushions very quickly and no need to find some other way to finish the edges. Highly recommend.
