Default Trying to locate a tubing hand tool

A friend of mine has a small, hand held tool that has a one way bearing that prevents the tubing from turning while being cut.
It is about 4" long, has a rubber grip on a round shaft with a round head that houses the bearing.
It makes cutting 1/4" and other small diameter tubing a breeze.
If you know what I am describing, I would sure like to have a source to purchase a set.

Thanks too!
What I want is a tool that holds the tube so you don't have to use that vise-like grip with the left hand.
We can't use pliers of any kind on the tube we cut.

A brand would be great! Or put a rag around the tube then use vise grips to hold it..it doesnt take much pressure to cut that small shit

There is not a single mark, letter or anything on the tool.

"We can't use pliers of any kind on the tube we cut."
and we can't use rags in a Class 1 cleanroom. This is for ultra high purity EP SS tubing.
Try cutting and bending 40 to 200 feet of 1/4" tubing for a few 10 hour days for a few months...
taint so easy.

Having tools is cool

I saw the title, thought about posting a comment on it, then decided not to.

I'm proud of myself.
