If you are building foam board models sooner or later you will need to cut some bbq skewers. The problem is getting a nice, clean cut. I’ve tried scissors, side cutters, and xacto saws. None work that well. Seems like they all leave strands of bamboo sticking out. But I came across these Fiskars in the garage and tried them out. Nice, clean cuts; no problem.
It’s difficult to neatly cut bamboo barbecue skewers. Seems like there are always strands hanging out or the tool that you are using cuts and crushes. This Fiskars tool is something we use in the garden and, as it turns out, it works great for cutting bamboo skewers; nice, clean cuts. You can probably pick one up at your local hardware.
