How Do You Cut Kaizen Foam

Cutting Kaizen Foam shouldn't be intimidating, it's a very easy foam to work with!

Step 1: To start you're going to want to trace out your equipment with one of our fastcap kaizen foam markers. Depending on how snug you want the fit to be, you can either cut to the left or the right of the outline.  

Step 2: Then with a thin blade kaizen knife or a sharp knife of your choice, set the blade to how deep you want the cut out to be and then cut out your outline. 

Step 3: Peel out the kaizen foam by sticking your fingers underneath the cut out and then use your fingers as a sort of plow and peel it out at your desired layer. 

After that last step check your fit by placing your gear back in and then adjust the cutout to your desired fit!
