Hint - Extended cutting of Kevlar is pretty hard on cutting tools and can seriously dull edges in just a few uses. Don't use your best knives or scissors on it. Better to use inexpensive knives and scissors and resharpen as needed. When the blades get worn down from all the resharpening you can buy new ones for cheap and pension off the expended units to the kids.

There are special ceramic bladed cutting tools that can cut Kevlar without dulling quickly but you pay through the nose for them. For non-industrial use it is easier to just cut and sharpen as needed.
