To cut sth in half using teeth

In the Czech language we can say "překousnout" to express literally "to cut sth in half using teeth" just with one word. This is used e.g. in the context of sewing when scissors are not at hand and we need to bite the cotton thread to short and cut it. We can do the same with a piece of adhesive tape.

Is there an elegant translation of this verb in English and would you give me an example of the usage in a sentence?

The only translation I have found is "to bite sth in two" on a doubtful online dictionary on the czech domain.
