The Kinkajou Bottle Cutter was designed to be the ultimate hand held bottle cutter.
The cutting wheel is made from high quality tungsten carbide steel that lasts over 200 cuts.
The Kinkajou adjusts to fit round bottles with a circumference ranging from 1-3/4" to 4" (43 to 102mm).
Our bottle cutting process consists of 3 main steps: scoring, separating, and finishing:
Scoring Process: Insert a bottle into the Kinkajou so that the cutting wheel lines up to the desired cutting location and adjust the screws
until the Kinkajou grasps the bottle firmly but still allows it to easily turn.
Engage the cutting wheel and rotate the bottle one complete turn ONLY.
You will hear our signature “Kinkajou Click” once the rotation is complete.
Separation Process: Place a separation tie on each side of the score line and pour alternating streams of boiling and cold water to stress the glass.
The Kinkajou can handle thick and thin bottles just fine however thicker glass may require more cycles of boiling and cold water to force the separation.
Finishing Process: Your Kinkajou kit includes 3 sheets of 80-grit sandpaper.
Please note the instructions above are a quick summary.
