Default re "optional" Cutting armor divisor

Reading through the Holdout/armor thread and the mention of an optional Cutting armor divisor finally registered. I'm assuming it's a houserule, but I like it, and wanted to check the effects.

Statting out some weapons for UT TL9+2^. Basically, a hyperdense vibroblade shortsword for ST70* would be sw+1d+7(10)cut and thr+7(5)imp** but if using the optional Cutting armor divisor this becomes sw+1d+7(5)cut, yes?

*for Anthropomorphic Power Armour [okay, mecha:)] 6yd, 5300lb, DR300/200.

**I see this might be changed in LT but I'll wait for the release.

Not really. It's an optional rule from Low-Tech, called 'Edge Protection'. It's also more complicated than just an armor multiplier on cutting weapons.

Please tell it ain't the one where all armour has 2 stats, one for Edged and the other for Blunt... I've seen a conversion like that and it was kinda cute for LT armor but it made a complete hash of UT armor (or at least I did in trying to apply it). And now I can't find my notes on it...

TQ Maz.
Hmm, not sure that that sounds better but it certainly is KISS.
LT will be fun.
