Safety Cutter Review & Giveaway

Safety Cutter

The Slice Cutter is small, a little over the size of a half-a-dollar, but it's powerful, one of those little tools that makes you remember the saying, "Good things come in small packages."  My husband wanted to see it when I opened it, and ran around finding things to cut open (he actually enjoyed it, "Ok, honey, look at this one," he said while opening the plastic around a DVD.").



The blade is encompassed in a rubberized no-slip shell, and the ceramic blade is at the very bottom (not visible like a dangerous utility knife or box cutter).  You hold it parallel to what you're cutting and it works like a charm (don't hold it at an angle or it doesn't work as well).  My husband opened a box, tape on a box, plastic packaging, and the aforementioned plastic shrink wrap on a DVD.  Then he got fancy and cut shapes out of paper (and it worked GREAT, which makes it a neat tool for scrapbooking or cutting out coupons!).



Because the blade is ceramic, it's going to stay sharp, last longer than metal, and it will never rust.  Another cool feature is that it has a magnet inside, so it can hang from the side of your refrigerator if you want it to (no more wondering where something went when you need it).  It also has a key chain hole if you want to tote it along with your keys.


Ceramic Blade


The product is made by Slice, whose specialty is making things that cut, and cut well.  They make scissors (from Japanese stainless steel), a nifty ceramic-blade fruit/vegetable peeler, various vase mills for grinding, and even a cosmetic pencil sharpener.  They also make some pretty nifty tweezers, one type of which was featured in Vanity Fair magazine.

I like the idea of ceramic instead of metal for cutting.  It just seems safer to me (especially if you have children in the house), so I am really intrigued by this company and their products.

You can read more about Slice on their website.  You can also follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

One reader is going to receive the same Safety Cutter that I reviewed (thank you Slice!).  Enter on the Rafflecopter below.  Winner will be randomly selected and notified via e-mail.  Winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be selected.

Disclaimer:  Two safety cutters were sent to me (one for review and one to send to the randomly selected winner of this giveaway).  No other form of compensation took place, and the opinions are entirely my own.

I love this! I am always hiding scissors because of my three children and when I need them, I have to spend ten minutes trying to remember where I hid them. This would be so nice to stick to the top of the freezer and I would never have to worry about forgetting where I put it.
