    I cut my squeegee rubbers with a chisel, find my scraper not strong or sharp enough. find it hard to get a perfect cut, does this all look ok in photos? Also, how long before you change yours?

    I find razrblade very hard to cut. Feels soft, but it's like leather or something. I use a brand new 4cm blade to cut

    I prefer my garden scissor cuts easy and straight.

    I use a knife on my multi tool. It's razor sharp, does a good job.
