Can anyone recommend some kind of cutter that will cut cleanly through braid and not chew it up?

A very sharp knife is the best implement I have found.

Buy a small pair of Fiskars scissors and carry them in the boat.

Best braid cutting tool I have ever used. Even has a lanyard to clip it to that funny little strap on your fishing shirt.

Yep.

Not sure about clipping it to my shirt, I probably would forget where I put it.

I've sold a hundred of the Boomerang cutting tool.. Truly a great product that works!! Might cost more than a pair of scissors but handy, light, and I have not heard one complaint about them..

This is a good tool but pretty much any tool will cut braid if you pull it tight and hold it while you are cutting. After I tie my knot I hold the tag end in my teeth and pull it tight then use my clippers or scissors to cut it. The trick is pulling it tight before you try to cut it. thumb

I like the Berkley hot wire cutter -- AAA-battery powered, has tiny wire loop that gets real hot and makes nice clean cut by melting the line. Think I paid $12-15 for it, and well worth every penny. Tried to include a picture but I guess the URLs are too well encrypted.

so - i got these on sale at LL bean 6 years ago- best all around angling tool i ever bought smile

handles cutting any type of line - strong enough for working with lightweight wire items, and perfect length for digging out the odd stubborn hook from a fishes mouth. I keep them either clipped to me or a lanyard on my tool box.

I like the hot wire cutter but it's hard to go wrong with Dr Slick stuff.

Have several Boomerangs. Been using them for years and love them. Have one clipped to my PFD and one on each of my fly bags (fresh and salt water). And you don't need to pull braid tight to cut it with a Boomerang.
