The first time I used the hay bay cutter the blade went into the plastic handle. I was able to get one string cut off a bale of hay. Not good quality.
"Great and safe cutter"
Easy to use limited risk of losing blade or getting cut compared to knife or box cutter which many people use. Hardy plastic and fits in pocket or has hole to run twine threw to hang etc great price
Like the other two reviewers, the blade disappeared when I went to open the second string. Fortunately, I was cutting open an upright bale, so I threw away the top flake in order to avoid any risk. This is a dangerous product!
"Not as good as originals"
I too "lost" the blade on the first cut and was scared thinking it was in the hay. I have had these before and they were tightly constructed. These must be made using the oldest dies they could find for molding. I took it apart, repositioned the blade, added some glue to keep the blade in the right place, and reassembled. The old ones, red/burgundy, I would open up and switch or replace the razor blade, but they were 8 and 9 years old and not holding together so good. Wish I had kept them. But, knowing the problem, I will order a couple more and disassemble and re-assemble and glue the blade in place, inside.
"Great idea, not a good tool"
Thought this was a great idea when I ordered two. Cut the first string like a hot knife going through butter. Cut the second string and nothing happened, the blade had fallen out of the tool. To make matters worse I can't find the blade, just hope a horse doesn't slice a nose or tongue. Guess this is why they are only two dollars. Will keep you posted on the other one I purchased.
