This cutter is designed to cut the flat webbing of safety and tether lines while under load in the event of an emergency where a person needs to be extricated from the tether. It provides the best protection against the risk of a safety line becoming unreleasable under load. Wearing this cutter satisfies ISAF and ORC sailboat racing recommendations for all types of safety lines by providing a reliable "means of disconnection".
