Pruning use to be my life having had a vineyard. I agree with bypass pruners, but not with shears. They don't open that wide and that hose is fairly strong.

This is the tool dog and others are referring to: Scissor-Style Cutter - RIDGID Professional Tools
Work it back and forth on larger size tubing. It's for black poly and soft plastic hose. If you're cutting PVC you need the ratcheting type with a sturdier blade. You can find the scissors type at most hardware stores as well as big box stores for $10-15. They're too inexpensive not to have one in your tool box and beat the hacksaw to pieces.

I like really straight edges on hoses and like sort of melting the layers of a laminated hose togetehr so that moisture cannot start seperating them,

For these reasons I tend to use an ANGLE GRINDER running a innox (stainless steel cutting) blade. Go carefuly and rotate the hose or the tool around it, remember you are half cutting and half melting. I really like the results in various higher tech hoses. The alternative for me is a knife and just hack and whittle till its right.

I just finished a job using the same type of hose and I used a hacksaw and a homemade miter box. If you are looking for straight flush cuts this is the way to go.
