    Pocket knives, utility knives all are good for deburring. But if you look at the tubing/pipe cutter, most have a blade that will swing out like the blade on a pocket knife which will probably be much safer to use vs. a knife.

    Good info. Would have liked to see additional comment on measuring tubing prior to bendin g to ensure your bend ends up where it is intended to be. i.e. if a 2 inch straight section is required before a 90 degree bend, how do you set up bender to ensure it forms tubing at right location to meet the 2 inch requirement.
