I don't know about you, but cutting a constrictor knot while saving the bands was always an issue for me.

Here's what I do, may be its helpful for somebody. You need a leather needle (or may be a skewer), just that.

Crap smartphone pics following. If you have a better solution please post it. Cheers everybody!

Yes there is a better way . You can buy this in the sewing/craft section of the store . You slide it under the constrictor knot and then it cuts it free . Works very well and it is a cheap tool .

Great ideas guys :) Thus far I've been using the " sharp knife and a light touch " method that works most of the time. But I am mostly saving the pouch and not the band.

If I need to save the rubber (very rare), I use a curved scalpel blade and try to cut through as much as possible without nicking the rubber - then pull the rubber apart to break the remaining strands. More often the tied end of the rubber doesn't need saving, so I just cut into it.

Ordo, I love tying all knots... and I have a system. I have been just cutting the whole thing loosenwith my Swiss Army knife scissors. But now I want to try this. I will have to go through all my frames ans see who will be my 1st patient.
