Seam Cutters

No. 301

No. 301 Cushion Back Cutter

This cutter trims seam edges for better seams. The precision blade pockets on both left and right sides hold the slotted razor blades without screws. The 30° blade angle cuts attached cushion carpets cleanly. The front guide is beveled to follow the carpet's rows. The soft grip handle provides comfort and control. For best results, trim WITH (in the direction of) the nap sweep of the carpet. Beginning at a starting point on the left side of the seam, trim with the left blade down in the direction of the nap sweep. Return to this same starting point on the right side of the carpet and trim with the left blade down in the same direction. This procedure simulates the factory spacing of the carpet's rows on most carpets. When necessary, to trim both edges as close as possible to the tufts, trim the right side of the seam with the right blade down, then on the left side retract the right blade and trim with the left blade down. Net weight: 8 oz. Blades: slotted razor (Crain No. 308C).

No. 290

No. 290 Seam Cutter Plus

This cutter excels on zigzag ("hydra-shift") carpets including commercial loop pile and Berbers! The blade runs directly behind the center row guide. This keeps the blade away from the offset yarns, preventing yarns from being sheared, which causes unsightly seams. The wide base keeps the blade perpendicular to the yarns, further reducing nap shear. The row guide can be retracted fully into the base for top cutting. The tool can also be used as a trimmer to precisely trim carpet up to Z-bar or vinyl molding. Net weight: 1.2 lbs. Blades: Slotted razor (Crain No. 308C) and utility.
