or more appropriately, "score-er". I found this one online for around $15. There are many different kinds, but they all essentially do the same thing. Which is score the bottle all the way around, allowing you to use the method of your choice to turn the score into a perfect crack.
Make sure to apply steady pressure as you turn the bottle, and try not to slip. You want a straight line all the way around, and only one time around.

I would appreciate it if you would tell me what brand name is on the glass cutter or where online did you find it using what keyword? I've looked at a lot of them and none are $15 or lower.
you can get glass cutting wheels anywhere on the web or in most hardware stores. and when it comes to price you might just have to wait and shop around if you're looking for cheap
Thanks Bob. I actually found an easy DIY bottle cutter that I might get around to making myself. As it is, I have a lot of projects that need completing or working on for 2011.

Happy New Year!
