Abstract : The patent relates to a cable cutter assembly which includes a support, a pair of blocks wherein each of the blocks has a cutting edge, and means mounting the pair of blocks on the support for slidable reciprocatory movement between a spaced apart position to a closed position which cuts a cable between the cutting edges. Each of the blocks has a curved surface opposite the respective cutting edge so that the cable can extend smoothly thereabout. The cable can be disposed within the cutter assembly in an S shape so that when a predetermined strain is taken on the cable the cutting edges of the blocks will sever the cable.
