From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Laser-cutters are tools used by the Covenant to cut materials.[1] They utilize high-power lasers that can cut through almost anything. They are commonly found aboard Kig-Yar vessels.

The Kig-Yar aboard the Minor Transgression used laser-cutters to disconnect the Luminary from the ship's main power grid, which was considered heretical.[1] As (almost) demonstrated by Zhar, a laser-cutter can be used as a deadly weapon if the need arises, as it could easily cut through armor and skin.[2] In April 2553, Bakz used laser-cutters from the Paragon to create an exit when he was locked inside a compartment on the Pious Inquisitor.[3]
