Crafters Hot Knife, , "Rod Style" Tool Kit

Break through Continuous duty Cycle with Versatile Sled Guide

Los Angeles, CA – TL Marshall Company has released a revolutionary new version of its popular Crafters Hot Knife.  Due to new high technology insulation, the Crafters “Rod Style” hot knives offer a continuous duty cycle without shutting down to cool. Most high powered hot knives cut for only 5 minutes before requiring a rest cycle of at least 3 minutes. The Rods are made with a tough 1/8” diameter Stainless Steel outer tubing that won’t easily bend and warp like comparable hot wire tools.  Other useful options include a versatile sled guide accessory and convenient ergonomic stay-on power switch.  

The new Crafters Rod Kit is available in 3 or 4 piece kits that include 6”and/or 9” hot knives, a 45 watt power supply with 9’ power cord and a versatile accessory that converts to a sled guide, rod stand or table adaptor. The 9” Rod is the longest cutting blade in the industry and addresses a critical need for longer cutting tools. The rods heat to a maximum cutting temperature of 800 degrees Fahrenheit in one minute and they are available in 110 or 220 volts for both USA and international markets. 

“This new tool kit is packed with every feature consumers have requested,” say Lorraine Marshall, President of Foam Cutting World and creator of the original Crafters and PRO-1 Hot Knives. “It offers affordability, continuous work cycle, strong and long length, stay on power switch, 110  and 220 voltage and a great new guide accessory allowing precision cutting, safety, and an all new feature which converts ordinary tables into a foam cutting table” 

The new kit is used primarily by do-it-yourself builders, electricians and model makers but the tools can easily be used for cutting fabric, theater props, packaging, candle making and a variety of other industries with materials that use heat to cut. The 6” rod kit starts at an introductory retail price of $79.95 and is available at and select retail outlets.
