Can you cut MDF with a knife?

You can score the laminated MDF with a knife, but you'll need something more powerful to cut through completely. Keep a metal edge straight against the cutting line, and lightly pass the blade of the utility knife over the line, repeating until the laminate is fully marked. After that, a circular saw or jig saw should help cut straight through the MDF.
