    I don't have rotary cutters (I may get some one day). I use fabric cutting shears, while cutting slowly and carefully. But if anyone knows other ways I'd like to know too.

    You can use these large table paper cutters. Some people use adhesive tape on both sides of the Thera Band, then you can cut it with a sharp stanley knife.

    But my experience is that the bands break earlier when you use anything but fairly new rotary cutter blades. One nick and the bands will tear at that point.

    I once burned through the bands with a red hot metal strip, and it worked just fine! The bands are still working today!

    I used medical scissors from a first aid kit. Worked fine but still look like bitten :)
