Former University of Ottawa Gee-Gees Jeff Beraznik founded the Cutters brand in Canada during the 1990s, when a hand injury forced him to wear gloves. Not satisfied with any available football gloves on the market, he came across industrial gloves used by glass handlers and cutters. The gloves did the trick and led to years of research to develop the concept into high-performance sports gloves. This was the launching pad for Cutters in 1997 and its C-Tack grip technology. HIT a Double is an authorized dealer for Cutters.
