Cutter (Cuchillo in Spain) is one of Kirby's Copy abilities, debuting in Kirby's Adventure. It is commonly regarded as the main projectile-based ability in the series. Cutter Kirby gains the ability to utilize a curved blade. When thrown, it will always return to him in the fashion of a boomerang. If Kirby jumps over the cutter on its return, it will go beyond him and go off-screen (and also cleave any enemies that happen to be behind him). In later games, the Cutter's blade has become more controllable since Kirby can guide the blade either upwards or downwards. The Cutter hat somewhat resembles a duck - it's a yellow hat with a bill that's either yellow or white and two black eyes that look like Kirby's own. Two tiny white wings are on the side and Kirby keeps the cutter blade attached to the top of the hat when not in use. However, in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, the "blade" Kirby uses is actually his own face, which peels off his body and travels forward. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Cutter Kirby can charge and throw a large cutter.
