Hand Held Hose Shear
There are a number of methods for cutting the stainless braided hose, but the quickest and easiest is the hand held hose shear. With one stroke, hose up to -12 can be cut quickly and cleanly. Some braid strands may need additional clipping with side cut wire pliers.
Not for all types of hose, as some multi-layer hose like power steering hose may be too thick or tough.
