Step 3 - Make the cut

Squeeze the handles together, in the same way scissors or shears are used. The blade will close against the anvil jaw and the pipe or hose should be neatly cut.

If necessary you can rotate the cutter as you cut, this should help keep a clean cut in thicker or more rigid materials.
