using this knife to cut Press blankets. Company is improving on safety issues, and we feel that the Ceramic blade is safer for operators than the old metal retractable knives with sharp metal blades. This knife is still in the experimental stage. So far it is meeting our needs.

Only used a time or two, but so far it's great. Cuts through thick card stock easily.

Only thing I would like to see is a larger pack of blades for purchase with having so many facilities and individuals in the event of having to change a blade on several knives at once it will take a lot of 4 packs

Great tool for our use in cutting and segmenting friable rock segments for trace metal analysis. They provide high accuracy and ease in addition to low contamination rates.

The knife itself is a decent product, but one of the blades broke when an assembler at my plan took the knife out of its packaging. This could have been because they were too rough with it, but I still feel the blade should not be in the open positioning while inside the packaging, since issues like this can happen & it's a potential safety hazard (this method of packaging is standard for these types of knives, but most knives are metallic). To solve this, Slice could just package the craft knife with the blade inside of it, and print a life-sized picture of the blade where the blade would be exposed. This way, the product is protected, doesn't produce a safety hazard, and customers can still see what the blade looks like before opening the package.

More About the Slice Craft Knife

What Is a Craft Knife?

A craft knife is a type of precision knife with a long blade. Long, in this case, is in comparison with micro blades, such as the one found in the 00116 Slice Precision Cutter. Our craft tool features a cutting depth around 12 to 16 millimeters, depending on which blade you choose, as opposed to the Precision Cutter, whose blade depth is around 1.5 millimeters. Despite its name, a crafting knife has uses well beyond the crafting world. Industries as varied as aerospace, electronics manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals all use craft blades. Any application that requires precision and accuracy is well suited to this type of tool.

What Is a Craft Knife Used For?

Among crafters and hobbyists, this style of knife is used on a variety of materials, such as delicate paper and fabrics, tough leather, and vinyls used in RC modeling. Scrapbookers love the versatility of this style of art cutter since they encounter a number of different media in their work. Sculptors and scratchboard artists also appreciate the control that the Slice 10548 knife gives them.

While artists and crafters often choose it for paper cutting or sculpting, its design also lends itself well to industrial and laboratory applications. These include cutting around delicate electrical components and manipulating small samples in a lab. Unlike steel blades, the ceramic safety blades in Slice knives are non-conductive, chemically inert, and don't require special oil coatings. This reduces maintenance time, lowers the chance of lacerations, and removes any uncertainty around altering the material that’s being cut, scraped, or trimmed.

How to Use a Craft Cutter Safely

First of all, be sure you choose the right knife for the job. The Slice 10548 knife ships with a 10518 straight-edge, round-point blade for safety, but any job requiring a piercing action to initiate the cut is better suited to a pointed-tip blade, such as the Slice 10519 blade (shipping in December 2017). Always be sure to replace the safety cap after use and work in a distraction-free environment whenever possible. The 10548 knife includes extra safety features, such as a cross-hatched grip and a no-roll design to increase your control and keep your tool close by.

How Do I Replace the Blade? How Often?

Craft blades should ideally be replaced once they dull enough to require extra pressure to make a cut. Because Slice uses advanced ceramics—a much harder material than stainless steel—our ceramic safety blades last an average of 11 times longer than comparable steel blades. This means you’ll be replacing your blade less often than you would for a metal blade.

To replace the finger-friendly blade in a Slice craft knife, unscrew the grip section to loosen the tool’s blade enclosure. When the blade is loose enough to pull out easily, simply remove it and insert a fresh blade.

How Is the Slice 10548 Blade Safer Than a Metal Blade?

Like all our ceramic safety blades, Slice craft blades feature our proprietary finger-friendly® edge. This means that while the blades cut materials effectively, they are engineered to resist cutting skin. This safety feature, more than any other, sets Slice apart. While other companies redesign their handles to reduce blade exposure, we redesigned the blade itself. For more information about our design, read The Safety Blade: Everything You Need to Know.
