Pros : it scores any average bottle just fine. It keeps things nice and straight and serves its purpose for the price.
Cons : unscrewing the nut and bolt every time you want to adjust the length is kind of a pain.
Other Thoughts : When it comes to getting a clean cut out of the bottle the instructions show you to use an ice cube! That in my opinion is why people are having trouble getting clean cuts with this thing. Candle, wet paper towel, candle, wet paper towel, slow and steady easy does it. Make sure you have a still flame and listen for crackles in the glass. About 3 is good under the candle for the first rotation and then move to the wet paper towel. Dry it off, cool it down then move it to the candle. Most likely you will get a clean break from the flame. if not move it to the towel again. when using the paper towel just wrap the wet part over your finger and drag it around the crack. Keep repeating and don't let the flame touch the glass.
Pros : Hate to diss someone else's invention, but would return this product if I could. I have used it on and off for a number of weeks and always end up getting totally frustrated with it.
Cons : There is no ruler and the screw that holds the back stop makes it difficult to adjust to a required length. The options for size of glass rings is limited. You cannot cut close to the bottom of the bottle. The bottle can move around too much so that no matter how carefully you try to turn it, the score line often does not meet up. It is also not possible to cut bottles with smaller diameters than a wine bottle. Large bottles are also difficult to work with.
Other Thoughts : All in all, this cutter is a good idea that needs more polishing to make it workable. I have ruined far more bottles than I have successfully scored.

I have stashed away old jars and bottles for many years. As an avid wine lover I have amassed more than my fair share of wine bottles. I use them to line my flower beds, as bottle tree sculptures and in some of my art pieces. When I discovered the Ephrems Bottle cutter it became an indispensable tool for recycling and reusing these old jars and bottles. I instantly made myself a complete set of water and juice glasses. They remind me of the jelly jars and mason jars I drank from at grandmas as a child. Everyone who comes to my home loves them too and wants me to make a set for them. In this video I share some of the projects from my book "Bottle Art" and show you how to use the bottle cutter. It is very simple and you can often get more than one
