As usual, I have been planning out some DIY projects lately that will require me to be cutting some wine bottles.  So as you would expect, I was hunting around for the best method to cut the wine bottles easily…work smarter not harder hehe.   While I was doing this, my husband chimed in and said that he saw a video of a guy demonstrating how to use a Kinkajou Bottle Cutter and he thought it looked pretty easy.  Well he had me watch the video and I have to say it did seem pretty quick and easy to use.  With that being said, in the back of my mind, I was a little hesitant since it seemed almost too easy….what’s the catch?! Do ya gotta have that special touch? Or be able to have that magical twist in your wrist?  Hmmm….well we read lots of reviews and all seemed pretty pleased with their results and ease of use.  So I figured what the hey…just try it…so we went ahead and ordered the standard kit.

Kinkajou Bottle Cutter – Standard Kit

Alrighty….it has arrived (pretty quick I might add), so now it is time to start carving up some glass!!  Holy cow!!! I have to say that it is pretty easy to do, especially with the great how-to videos they have on their website. It did take us a little bit of time at first to get in a good groove with it but I did manage to get 6 bottles cut it in 30 minutes !! Woohoo!!!

Now all I have to do is sand these edges so no one gets cut, then just get moving on my projects (be patient, you will see soon).  I am pretty pleased, since cutting these bottles WAS going to be my hardest part of my project.  So needless to say, even though it is a little pricey for my taste, it was well worth it!!!  The only advice I can give is ……FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!!! Watch the how-to-videos!!! And do not deviate from what they tell you to do to get the best cut!!  I think if you decide to get one you will be pleased!! Good luck!!
