Rothenberger Rocut 38 Direct Cut Pipe Shears 0-38mm is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pipe Cutter Far superior to my previous method of cutting plastic pipe with a hacksaw. Makes a smooth accurate cut without the need for deburring. Much to early to comment on reliability & I am not sure how many cuts the blade will make before it needs replacing but so far very happy with this tool..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They bite I had a mixed experience with these. Cutting 25mm waste pipe, they went through with a bit of encouragement and quite a lot of pressure. Then I used them on an MDPE water main, which they chopped through far easier than I expected. Unfortunately, the handle design is a trap for the unwary, and pinched the base of my index finger hard enough make a nasty cut. So, 5 stars for MDPE cutting performance, 4 stars for smallish waste pipe, and zero stars for carving a chunk out of me. Average for all categories, 3 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid buy These aren't the cheapest plastic pipe cutters on the market but you can tell that. They are solidly built and have a good feel in the hand. I had previously purchased some from somewhere else and quickly returned them as they crushed the pipe, not the problem with these. They cut through the pipe with not problem, my only wish is they had a ratchet system to help with the cutting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor design Initially seem like good cutters, however now put aside to throw away or return to screwfix. They only really work on PEX tube - polyb. tube is too flexible and the cutters just squash the tube and deform it. However, the main problem is the handle design which perhaps because the handle is (uncomfortably) narrow, manages to repeatedly very painfully trap a bit of skin on my hand as they close. Interesting because as soon as you pick them up you will notice the mean narrow thin handle which is the source of the problem...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Angled cut every time I practised with these on 32mm waste pipe when I first got them and no matter which way I tried using them they always cut at an angle = 5 degrees minimum! So I ended up taking them back and went back to using a hacksaw. Maybe I got a bad set but it didn't seem a very a good design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool I was sceptical before using these to cut 32mm HDPE pipe: looked too light and small but they glide through it like a knife through butter. Not easy to make a perfect cut at 90 degrees to the pipe but that's not so important for what I'm doing. Well designed and made as you'd expect from this brand. Slightly pricey but they do the job well.
