Kinda looks like a cigar cutter.

The best hose cutters I’ve ever used, with a commonly replaceable, super-sharp blade. Better than Magura’s, better than Avid’s old one, a rebranded Jagwire.

If only it could be used as one as well!!

Hopefully It’s cheaper than the old $75 one that looked like a knife sharpener.. but cuts as straight as that $75 one.

Same tool frome Jagwire. Costs about $25
