A plexiglass cutter is a very simple tool, essentially a sharp point with a handle. It is drawn over plexiglass to score it before breaking along the score to cut the plexi.
I love it because it is dead simple, cheap, and it works very well. It does not slip and scratch the plexi as easily as a knife. It also makes a deeper, smoother score line, and does it faster than a knife. It makes cutting plexiglass and similar materials fast and easy.
Be careful not to chip the tip. On mine, the tip is hardened, which makes it great for cutting, but a bit brittle. Chipping the tip makes the tool stop working.
You can get it from Home Depot and most other hardware stores, but Home Depot does not list it on their website. Support your local independant hardware store!
