What's your tool of choice for cutting sash chain?

More of a observation than a real question. Been on several smaller shoots where the idea of using sash chain for securing anything was a totally unknown concept. Production wouldn't provide or pay for any hardware (chain, screws, screw eyes, S hooks, etc.) brought onto the set. Everything was trick line or rope. Sign of the times or a sign of ignorance?
