This pipe cutter is for PEX pipe ONLY! I'm just assuming that all the bad reviews of this product are the same results of why I ended up with it. hopefully this review will save people from the same trouble as me as the product only specifies in 1 tiny place that it is for PEX pipe.

i installed a sink in my backyard using pen pipe. The cutter worked great.
Fantastic and easy to use. Using these made me feel more confident about my cuts. These cutters do make it easier because they have a thick ledge to hold the pex flat while you make the cut. Very handy and big time saver. I made my own manifold behind the hot water heater with these cutters.
Cant seem to cut 1/2in pex straight. Returing product to get a ratcheting style or other. I would steer away from this tool. Im a DIYer and perfectionist and going from copper to pex is a dream but this tool is a headache.

It broke on its first cut. We had to buy a stronger model.

This Apollo 1/2 in. to 1 in. Pipe Cutter works...
This Apollo 1/2 in. to 1 in. Pipe Cutter works as described. It feels comfortable to grip and with minimal pressure you can feel the cutter, cutting through the apex Pipe. The cuts are straight and the edges are smooth. It also feels it will last a long time. Good tool to have for the professionals or for the average homeowner.
