U9-C4 destroys a B1 battle droid with his laser cutter.

"U9-C4, this laser cutter will slice through most materials you encounter. But make sure you're in a locked position. The recoil packs quite a wallop."
Doctor Gubacher[src]

Laser cutters were laser tools that could be used to slice though almost any material, though they could also be used as weapons. When in use, they generated a high amount of recoil, which could cause its user to be knocked backwards if not anchored in place. During the Clone Wars, the astromech droid U9-C4 was outfitted with a concealed laser cutter for a mission to secure a Separatist encryption module.[1] The Organic decimator, a prototype Separatist droid, was also equipped with a laser cutter.[2]
