Accurate safe cutting anywhere.
Remove the safety risk of using a hand knife by adding the lightweight Simplex to your tool kit. Ideal in the workshop or on-site, for use by the craftsperson or fitter, the Simplex offers precision cutting accuracy in any environment. It will tackle a wide variety of materials from PVC foamboard to floor coverings and its superior build quality and robust design makes it the perfect portable unit.
Built to be portable:
The Simplex is lightweight and robust and can withstand the rigours of on-site working whilst being truly portable. By manufacturing in-house, with only the highest quality materials, Keencut can guarantee that the Simplex will provide reliable long-lasting and accurate service. The Simplex also has a comprehensive five year guarantee.
The versatile cutter:
The Simplex is very adaptable providing the safe, accurate cutting of a wide variety of rigid, semi-rigid and flexible materials up to 3.1 metres (124") wide. The utility blades will cut to a depth of 10mm (3/8"). By adding the optional textile cutter, the material range of the Simplex is extended to delicate materials. There are 5 Simplex model sizes to choose from and a cutting mat is required for safe operation. Please note, the cutting mat is not supplied.
The Simplex is guaranteed to cut within 1.0mm (0.004") of a straight line for the whole length of the cutter. The soft silicone cord on the underside of the cutter grips and protects materials whilst preventing any movement during use. The Simplex is calibrated for immediate ‘out of the box’ accuracy and is designed to remain accurate with only minimum maintenance.
Safety by design:
The Simplex overcomes the safety hazards of using other methods of portable cutting. It removes the need for using a hand knife and straight edge where users risk the blade slipping away from the straightedge or overshooting at the end of the cut. With the Simplex the blade instantly retracts when not in use.
Easy to use:
Everything has been considered to ensure ease-of-use and reduce user fatigue. An ergonomic rocker style cutting head is designed for left or right-handed use, and the blade can be pulled or pushed, as appropriate for the material being cut.
Five year guarantee:

"it’ll save me a bundle and I’m seriously, incredibly impressed"
“Very very impressed. I bought my first Keencut product this year – a Simplex 1.6 metre which could be used across the width of the existing banner table I had. There’s only two words needed to describe the cutter bar, having tested it on 6mm Corex, ‘Oh WOW!’ I am so delighted we purchased this product, it’ll save me a bundle and I’m seriously, incredibly impressed –it’s worked way beyond my expectations. I have no doubt I will be investing more in these products over time.”
