Pros : Absolutely beautiful deep, rich, shocking pink. Bullseye glass is traditionally NOT used for stained glass, and any glass listed as a striker only develops its full color in the kiln at the proper temperature.

I am at a crossroads however as my wifes uncle prefers the pen type cutter and my instructor prefers the "pistol grip" type cutter. My instructor states that better control is achieved with the pistol grip versus the pen type. These two opinions come from people who have been working with stained glass for about 12 years. I would like a non biased opinion to help make a decision on purchasing a cutter since I would like to spend enough money to get the best as I believe that a good cutter would make the hobby much more enjoyable.
