About a year or so ago, I found myself shopping for a bottle cutter. I spotted an inexpensive one at my local craft store, and since I had a project in mind that required a bottle cutter, I bought it. As it turned out, that wasn’t a good idea. It didn’t cut so much as scrape. Plus, I wanted to cut slanty bottles (at the neck, actually) and it certainly wouldn’t do that. (Can any cutter do that?) I put it back into its box and stuck it in the closet in my craft room and that’s where it’s been ever since. Now, after seeing so many more great recycling projects out there, like the tumblers pictured above, I want to give glass cutting another go. So, to make a long story a short question…what’s the best bottle cutter on the market?
