      That is the way I have done it for decades, so this way gets my vote. Easy and fast.

      I posted an alternative way of cutting a rubber but the chickens in the background were too noisy.

      I do it so and thought that everybody does it so since the beginning of time.., but as you have posted a video, I started wandering is there an alternative way to do it?

      with chicken in the background doesn't count

      In spite of the angle of the camera, it is a good video.

      I cut with a scissor. But that method with a good box cutter is pretty simple.

      Scissor, in ways is easy as long as you get the feel of how to start the cut. Cutting with the box cutter looks easy, but the tip about the angle of the blade is important and I bet that it takes some skill to learn to get such a clean cut.

      I always lick the rubber a little on the side I start my cut to make it easy for the scissors to cut.

      Korean lady coaches use mostly a box cutter and cut that sucka so fast and easy like it would make you very cautious to:

      - play them in a match
      - fight them
      - upset them to the point of breaking out the knife
      - ask them to cut off a little dead skin area
      - cut the national defecit

      I started out using scissors, but didn't like the somewhat jagged edge, so switched to using box cutter, just as shown in the video. Recently, saw a tutorial where the person using a box cutter cuts the rubber in two passes, first pass cuts just the sponge, the next pass cuts the topsheet. It is a little extra effort, but seems to be easier cutting the rubber. The advantage is it gives a very nice perpendicular edge on the rubber. I will try it next time.

      I can cut an H3 in 1 pass but it is very slow and kinda hard.

      Good video, but would be even better if the part where you explain how to hold the blade was inside the camera view.

      The reason Der moisten's the blade and rubber at the start of the cut is, it makes the initial cut go smoother. I have seen him do this in person. But I could not resist calling the goon squad on him.

      In the past, there was a European brand that chips off when being cut by a knife that either i had to put oil in the blade or use a shaving blade from the old generation shavers.

      Soapy water as a dip for the blade makes it super easy to keep the cut smooth slow.and steady. I always have found that the jagged and chipping happened when you go too fast and rip the rubber.

      Regardless of how you cut, it takes some skill and some practice. After having done it several times, you start to get the hang of it whether you use a scissor or a blade.

      Not necessarily true on cutting speed as there are rubbers that really chip even with slow cutting.
