A cutter is usually in the garment business.

Also if your Karlin family was from Belarus 
And possibly originally Karlinsky, we should talk further.

Subject: [] What's a Cutter? #usa #general

An ancestor was killed in a work-related accident in 1894, in New York City. I can't find anything specific about the accident, but city directories & his children's birth records give his occupation as "Cutter."
Anyone know what that is? What type of business would employ such a person? How might it be dangerous?
