Main Question or Discussion Point

is there a theoretical way to cut solid mater by disrupting the electron field holding atoms together

Yes.

One could for example replace the electrons with muons, changing field configuration thus disrupting crystal structure.

That's a bit exotic since muons are rare.

More practically one could use another stronger field to disrupt a weaker field. An example would be using the strong field of steel to cut a weaker bond in cellulose. This is the principal behind a wood saw.

Yes. Use a knife.You will disrupt the electron field.
