Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrdch1940 Works good on Handiboard
This knife made cutting of Handiboard fairly easy. You must break this board by pulling up which is a bit hard to do. The process I used was to score the top (marked with lines, etc.) first with the knife, then turn the board over and score the back as well. Then you can push down and break the board at the score line. Be sure to score both sides several times. To make small cutouts, etc., I used my Skil power jig saw with a concrete blade. This works good as well. BE SURE TO WEAR A DUST MASK WHILE USING A POWER TOOL WITH THE HANDIBOARD. It can be cut with a power rotary saw and concrete blade, but again the dust mask is necessary!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DustyDude Perfect Tool for Cement Board
This is the only tool I have found to cut regular cement board. I would score the board 2 or 3 times on one side and it would easily break. Then I would cut the fiber mesh on the inside of the break with my knife. I typically prefer to use Hardy board for my tile jobs, but this tool makes cutting regular cement board so easy I have switched.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jillbilly Sturdy, easy to use
We used this to cut Hardybacker board before re-tiling a shower. I wish the tool would have been sharper. Cutting smaller pieces took repeated and repeated runs down the score lines before we could finally break off small pieces without breakage or crumbling. But, we didn't have a power tool that could do this for us, nor did we want to incur the expense of tool purchase or rental.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tate I was amazed how well this tool actually worked. I was able to make many inticate cuts with it
This simple tool met every challenege I needed. I had to cut several boards and it never failed. The most amazing part was when I needed to make intecate cuts or hole cutouts. It was fairly straight forward. Well worth the investment if you have to make several cuts on backerboard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drilldad This product did what I needed it to do.
I use my scoring knife for more than backboard scoring. It works very well on different kinds of wall panels. I keep it handy for many other things that need to be heavily scored & broken.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cj1947 Very helpful tool when working with cement boards.
Difficult to find this tool, they keep them near the tile area rather then with tools. The tool itself works very well on cement board. Do wish it the handle was made of metal rather then plastic.
