A silicon cutter is a type of mining tool.

About the size of a knife, the wicked looking blade is extremely sharp with a frictionless edge only a few molecules wide. Silicon cutters were commonly used on Mars to cut into the rust-red martian permafrost, though under Earth Provisional Government laws it was illegal to carry them in public areas.[1]

In 2253, MetaPol intern Ysidra Tapia's arm was almost severed by a silicon cutter thrown by martian born miner Endra Nadja.
