Essential Tool for Riggers
I have recently discovered an essential item we should all have in our bosuns bag granted it will set you back about $4 bucks: A standard cigar guillotine double blade cutter. Why spend a bunch of money on a professional grade line cutter when this is all you really need. Just simply wrap masking/duct tape on the section you would like to cut. Slide the cutter to the midpoint of the spot, cut (it will be nice and clean and then fuse the ends with a lighter.
Oh and you willl never have to try to cut a cigar with a kitchen knife again, as you will always have a cigar cutter on board when you fire up a stogie after a sail!
