A surgical tool for cutting bones, casts and the like including a housing having a cutting knife extending from its forward end. The cutting knife is pivoted to a plunger which is movably disposed within one end of the housing while a piston is normally positioned at the other end. The piston is accelerated under air pressure to impact the plunger thereby causing the knife to move through a cutting stroke. Suitable valve means are provided to control the entry and venting of compressed air to and from the housing.
