Re: What's a Cutter? #usa #general

Everyone is suggesting a cutter worked in the garment or cloth industry; but I had a great uncle who, as a young immigrant, was a "cutter" for a shoe company, cutting leather parts to make shoes.  He said the shiny leather almost ruined his eyesight.  The 1906 Cincinnati city directory listed his occupation as "cutter."
