How Do You Cut Kaizen Foam

Cutting Kaizen Foam is easier than you may think, and with a few simple steps, you can create custom-fit compartments for your tools or other equipment.

Step 1: Start by tracing the outline of your equipment using a Fastcap Kaizen Foam marker. Depending on how snug you want the fit to be, you can cut to the left or right of the outline.

Step 2: Use a thin-blade Kaizen knife or a sharp knife of your choice to cut out your outline, setting the blade to the desired depth.

Step 3: Peel away the layers of Kaizen Foam by sticking your fingers underneath the cutout and using them as a plow to peel away at your desired layer. You may also use a Kaizen Spinner to help cut off the inner foam.

Once you've completed these steps, check the fit by placing your gear back in the cutout and adjust as necessary.
