A: The blade doesn't feel sharp and would require a lot of pressure to cut flesh, but I used it to PEX my new house which has 3 bathrooms. Worked great!
A: My blade is not "sharp" but still cuts pex tubing just fine.
A: This pex cutter is a shearing style device. It cuts the pex pipe with a sharp blade against the jaw of the cutter. So yes, it should be a sharp edge. Otherwise, you will not get a clean edge on your piece of pex.
A: Dull blade; flimsy handle(s). Very difficult to make a clean/and square cut, but it's possible with a couple of attempts.
A: No. The PEX pipe cutter will not cut PVC.
A: No. It's junk. Invest in a cutter specifically built for cutting pvc.
A: Hello, We do not recommend the use of SharkBite PEX pipe cutter U701A with PVC pipe. This cutter is designed for use with PEX or PE-RT tubing. If you have additional questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Best Regards,
A: Not that I can tell, the unit is plastic and if you are using it enough to dull the blade it may be time to move to a better product as I don't think the plastic handle will hold up under heavy use. For occasional use, it works great and is a great buy.
A: Without completely disassembling it, there's no apparent way to change the blade.
A: I don't see a way to replace the blade.
A: No, the blade is not replaceable. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.
A: I am not sure, don’t see any provision.
A: It's disposable. I disposed of mine when the handle broke off while trying to cut a 1 inch piece of PEC pipe.
A: You can buy replacement blades thru the manufacture's web site or thru Home Depot. Extra blades are not included with the package.
A: There is no obvious way to remove/replace a worn blade, however, the portion of the cutter that houses the blade can be separated from the rest of the tool, wouldn't be too difficult to pass the blade over a stone if it got irritatingly dull.
