A Cutter also known as a flag,  is used to “cut” the light and define the area lit. You can use a cutter to create a hard or soft edge, depending on how close to the light it is placed.

Floppies have an extra layer of material sewn to one edge and held in place with Touch Fastener until needed at which time the Cutter becomes twice its original size

Some technicians will use special names depending on the size or shape of the flag, but there is no penalty for switching the terms “cutter” and “flag.”  Some of the other names thrown around include

Charlie Bars;  Meat Axes; Blades
