Best way to cut 2" OC703

So what's the best way to cut OC703? Exacto? Scissors?

Also, do regular latex gloves work for handling it?

Thanks!

We use a band saw but I would think a Exacto would work fine.

A long sharp knife with a metal strait edge works best for me.

I dont use gloves or the like when handling the material. I find my hand calluses are sufficient to ward off itches.

It cuts quite easily with most knifes. A razor works fine, but isn't long enough. Any gloves will work fine. As Jim said, it can be handled with your hands, though gloves are typically recommended. The only places I've really gotten itchy are the inner portion of my wrists.

Thanks all. Went with an exacto and it works great.

I used an electric knife, like the one used to cut Turkey Dinner.

Worked great.

Another vote for the electric knife here. If you ever need to cut OC705, those Exacto knives and long blades just get chewed up/dulled so quickly. Using a serrated reciprocating blade (aka a turkey carver) works just like a hot knife through butter!
