I'm looking to see what y'all use to cut filters open easily.

something reasonably priced but good and fast at cutting some thick cans open.

looking to cut open several as a comparison piece.

Hacksaw and practice. Like the looks of that Harbor Freight cutter though.

Yes. This is inexpensive and works just fine.

You can get the Longacre Oil Filter Cutter from amazon for a bit more and it can be adjusted for smaller filters by moving the rollers. It does Honda filters with no issue, but I don't have anything smaller...

I have this one too. I don't have anything smaller than a FL400S-size.

I use a 3in air cutoff tool. Have to be careful though I've set a filter on fire with it before.
