Knives & Box Cutters
One of the most popular types of workplace utility knife is the retractable or folding utility knife (also known as a Stanley knife, box cutter, or by various other names). These types of utility knives are designed as multi-purpose cutting tools for use in a variety of trades and crafts.
Box cutters are compact, handheld tools that cut thin materials such as corrugated packaging or plastic film. This kind of tool is common both in household and industrial use, and traditional cutters are a major cause of laceration injuries in the workplace. The best box cutters include safety features, such as limited blade exposure, on-board retraction capability, and ergonomic handle design.
Tools like the manual box cutter have blades with multiple position settings. Choose a blade length that matches the material you're working with and retract the blade when your safety box cutter is not in use. In this way, the tool exposes just enough edge to make a clean cut, reducing the risk of injury. An Auto-Retractable Box Cutter combines the blade with a spring-loaded mechanism that retracts the blade automatically when you let go of the slider button.
Choosing the right box opener depends on the material you’re cutting. Slice offers a wide variety of blade depths, so you can find the right tool for the job. While traditional box openers sport blades within the 1-inch range, with Slice you’ll find multiple options at your disposal. In addition, our ergonomic handle ensures absolute control over your tool while you cut.
