Product Information

HardieBacker Score and Snap Knife designed with contractors and home owners in mind, this simple yet effective hand tool is perfect for accurate straight cuts on all HardieBacker cement boards up to 12mm thick.

Key features

  • Specifically designed for HardieBacker board
  • Easy to score and snap
  • Gives straight square edge cut
  • Long lasting
To cut the HardieBacker boards use a square edge rule to mark the cutting line with pencil or a marker. Lay the HardieBacker board on to a flat surface and score along the marked line, keeping hold of the rule firm on the board. Score the HrdieBacker board several times with firm pressure. Place the board on a support such as work bench or placing a timber batten under the board just before the scored line. Apply small firm pressure by hand on to the board to snap the board off. This principal can be used for mitre cuts as well.

Very durable - I've cut 17 Hardiebacker boards so far and no sign of the blades blunting.
