- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Been using a length of p-cord with knots in it for awhile now, and decided it might be time to invest in one of these. Its super solid and cuts through blocks with ease. It comes in two lengths that can be clipped together if you're cutting cornices. A single length is plenty when you're digging pits and isolating columns. It's worth a mention that the new carrying case has a hook-and-loop closure instead of the drawcord.
