In January’s MBM, which hits the newsstands tomorrow, we feature the results of the most comprehensive rope cutter test ever undertaken by a magazine.

Six of the biggest rope cutter brands on the market took part in the experiment – Stripper, Gator, Spurs, Plastimo, R&D, Prop Protector and Shaft Knife.
