    A:  It can be but you have to score it till you are about 3/8” into it. I found using a circular saw with a blade you are happy to throw away works better

      Q:Can this be used on vinyl floor planks?

      Answer This Question

      A:  This was designed to cut backer board and have a rather blunt edge on them, so no, Dave they would not efficiently cut vinyl floor planks. A good quality utility knife will do the job. I used the Husky Folding Lock-Back Utility Knife, which has a quick blade change feature, and it works very well for this purpose. (And no, I don't work for Home Depot, but I shop there a lot.) Just have a lot of blades handy so when they get dull, you will be able to keep cutting. I tried two ways to cut vinyl: Score and break, and just cut through. I found that with vinyl flooring, just cutting completely through does a nice job. Good luck, Dave!

      A:  The backerboard scoring knife is not intended to be used to cut vinyl floor planks. Instead, we would recommend a utility knife or one of our Roberts Floor Cutters. Customer Care

        A:  If the tile is already on the floor and the thinset has cured you cannot score or break the tile. Customer Care

          A:  I've never actually tried this, but I doubt very much it would work on thick tile at all never might tile stuck to the floor. This product works well with backer board, however.

            I used this backboard knife on 4x8" sheets of Wonder-board for 850 sq ft of floor. It lasted thru to the end of the job with no problem and is still sharp! We had to do a lot of cutting and this tool was up to the task. Forget about trying to cut cement board with a regular utility knife, this is the right tool for the job and is very reasonably priced to boot.

            VERY easy to use. I found that after multiple boards the handle became loose. Easy fix. Just tighten the screws. After cutting about 15 times tip is still as sharp as when I bought it.

            Compared to using a sharp utility knife that would dull on a single cut, this literally makes the job 100 times easier. The carbide tips haven't lost any bite after a hundred or so cuts so far. The longer handle allows for a lot more force than I got with the Utility Knife. About five swipes along a clamped Straight Edge and Ive been getting a pretty clean-cut.
