San Antonio, Texas—July 1, 2017—For the past five years, a San Antonio-based electrician has been taking to his workbench, cutting and welding electrical cords with a small electric knife.
Now, he’s getting his own electric knife, a first for him.
“I’m a huge fan of the electric blade, and the blades can do a lot of the jobs I can’t do with a hammer,” said John McWilliams, a 51-year-old electrical worker and electrician from San Antonio.
“So, I was excited to try this out.”
The electric blade has a sharp edge, but is light enough to be easily carried in a pocket or carried by a small child.
He said it’s a good choice for those who are used to using a hammer and are looking for a lighter option.
The electric knife has an open blade, making it easy to remove cords from electrical equipment.
It is a little bigger than a credit card, and is made of solid steel.
It has an ergonomic grip, but the handle is made from stainless steel and not plastic, so it’s comfortable to hold.
“This is my favorite tool I’ve ever used, and I really like it,” said McWilliams.
“It’s also really durable, so you don’t have to worry about it breaking.”
The first electric blade McWilliams ordered, from a Japanese company, had a 5-cent (US$1) price tag.
McWilliams said he had to spend an additional $300 for the knife after a customer complained about the weight of the blade.
It was not clear why the company would have cut the cord and not welded it.
But the company did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
A company that specializes in cutting and welding corded electric tools has introduced a new product, called the electric knife—a small, lightweight electric knife that is lighter and easier to carry.
McWilliam said he has used the knife for welding, and it’s perfect for people who don’t like to carry a hammer or a large, bulky hammer.
The company says it’s also designed to be easier to handle, since the blade is not as large as a credit or debit card.
“If you need to cut cords in a pinch, the electric electric knife is perfect for that,” said David Eichinger, the chief executive officer of the Electric Utility Equipment Association, which represents electric utility contractors.
The industry has seen an explosion of interest in cutting cords with an electric knife in recent years, and electric utility companies have seen an increase in demand for their tools.
Electric utility contractors say the blade allows them to cut and weld electrical cords, even if they have to use a hammer.
But McWilliams has seen more customers use the knife to cut corded cords, and he’s excited about it.
“The knife is so light, and also the blade has that nice sharp edge,” he said.
“People like it, and they like it so much that they are using it more than they did before.”
The company said it sold more than 10,000 electric knife sales during the third quarter of 2018, compared to 2,400 in the same period last year.
The knife is available for purchase online and in stores, and has been on sale at local electric utility businesses for several months.
The $1 price tag on the electric tool is just for a basic electric knife and not a bigger version.
But it’s worth it for McWilliams to be able to use it for cutting and bonding cords, said Eichler.
McBritt said he’s looking forward to using the electric knives.
“Hopefully, it’ll be a good tool,” he added.
“Because this is my first time using a knife, it’s been kind of nerve-wracking.”
