Is there an unbreakable lock?

Unfortunately, no bike lock is unbreakable. The strongest bike locks just need more advanced tools and more time to break. So when you buy the most secure bike lock you're just reducing the number of thieves who'll have the tools and the time to steal your bike.

What can cut a lock?

Using Bolt cutters
Bolt cutters are one of the most effective and popular ways to cut through a lock. Essentially, bolt cutters are just a bit pair of scissors that are equipped with a fulcrum joint which allows them to transfer much more power to the blades, allowing you to cut through thick metals.

How do you cut off a Master Lock?

Try bolt cutters.
You can use this tool on the shackle or on an attached cable. If the lock is attached to a cable, you may have better luck cutting the cable than the lock. If you want to try to cut open the lock itself, cut the shackle. This will not work on most master locks, as they are made of case hardened steel.
