If you are working with PEX, you need this tool in your kit. It cuts the pipe square and is easy to use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tommy It is junk.
It will not cut straight. Buy another brand. I read other bad reviews before I bought this. I should have believed them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jaybus Quick and easy
Does a great job cutting 3/4 and smaller pex. Hard to get a square cut on 1" pex due to flexing of the blade and/or blade holder. I think it simply isn't strong enough to cut 1" tubing properly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mika Works better on larger diameters I guess
Bought these to help with installing our new water softener. Used Sharkbite PVC pipe, figured these would be the best tool to cut it with. Cuts the pipe very easily, but could NEVER get it to do a straight cut. Every single cut was at a visible angle to the pipe. Tried everything: Turning the tool the other side up, making sure the pipe was completely straight before cutting it, making sure the pipe had NO curvature to it at all. Nothing worked. Finally had to get a different cutter to make sure the cuts were visibly straight. Might be worth trying for the price, but there must be some trick to getting it to cut straight that others know that I don't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Quick, safe, and easy to use
Look, you can cut PEX with a utility knife, so it's not like you MUST have this tool, but on the other hand, this tool is not all that expensive, it cuts PEX cleanly and quickly, always giving a smooth, square cut..
Also, there is no danger of a knife slipping and hurting you, or your 9 year old helper. We did our PEX installation down in the crawl space and with this tool, I was able to have my kid mark and cut all the pipe, whereas, if I had used a utility knife instead, I probably would have done all the cuts myself.
I do note that the blade itself is pretty thin and not replaceable, but for the price of this tool, I won't mind buying another if it wears out before I am finished with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jones1983 This product does not make square cuts as advertised !!!
This PEX tool will not make square cuts on 1/2 or 3/4 pex pipe. I purchased 4 pex cutters from 4 different manufacturers and this one was the worse when it came to cutting the pipe. I purchased a Lennox and it was a little better but not perfect. I also purchased an Apollo brand and the received the same result as the lennox. The winner was the kobalt pex cutter tool from lowes. It makes almost near perfect cuts depending on your technique. I would not recommend buying this sharkbite tool. You will not be pleased with the quality of the cuts that it will produce .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisMaple Works well for PEX
Cuts PEX well, not so good on other plastics (for which it was not designed). Cuts are clean, most times there's no burr to be cleaned off after the cut. The cutter is designed to help make the cuts square, but it's not perfect: be careful to line up the cutter at right angles to the pipe before cutting. It's hard to use in tight places (on existing plumbing) but not so hard as a hacksaw.

This is a great tool for cutting pex tubing. So far I have about 50 cut on this cutter and it is still razor sharp. Other cutter that I have used tend to crush the tube before cutting though it but this cutter slices the tube clean and with no distortion to the shape.
