As with all our ceramic blades, the retractable utility knife blade is non-conductive, chemically inert, and never rusts.

Pas aussi coupant qu'un OLFA Particulier à travailler quand il faut tenir la lame en tout temps quand on l'utilise... À voir avec l'usage.Cher Daniel,\n<br />\nThank you for taking the time to review our tools. We wanted to follow up on a few things:\n<br />\nHandle style: It looks like you’ve tried the Auto-Retractable Utility Knife. Automatic retraction is preferred by many safety managers, but we also make a Manual Utility Knife, with four preset cutting positions. We’d be happy to send you a complimentary Manual Utility Knife to try out. \n<br />\nCutting ability: Our blades cut most of the same materials as traditional blades, and are successfully installed in thousands of manufacturing facilities around the globe—they’re used by more than half the Fortune 1000. While our main motive is safety, we don't sacrifice efficiency or quality in our design.\n<br />\nWe find that most issues can be addressed with better training on how to use the tools and what to expect from the blades. With traditional blades—which are dangerously oversharpened—many people have come to expect a blade that is far sharper than necessary. More information on that here: Why Are Slice Ceramic Blades Initially Less Sharp Than Metal Blades? \n<br />\nIf we can learn a little more about your application, we’re confident we can get you cutting safely and efficiently. Sometimes a different blade tip is needed; sometimes the user is inadvertently holding the handle incorrectly. If you could provide a detailed account of the material you’re cutting, or, even better, a photo or video of the cutting, we can help you pinpoint the issue and find a solution. Thank you!\n<br />\n+++Nous nous excusons pour les erreurs de traduction: \n<br />\nMerci d'avoir pris le temps de nous écrire. Nous voulions répondre sur quelques points:\n<br />\nStyle de poignée: Il semble que vous ayez essayé le couteau utilitaire rétractable automatique. La rétraction automatique est préférée par de nombreux qui cherchent un couteau de sécurité, mais nous fabriquons également un couteau utilitaire manuel, avec quatre positions de coupe prédéfinies. Nous serions heureux de vous envoyer un couteau utilitaire manuel gratuit à essayer.\n<br />\nCoupures: Nos lames coupent la plupart des mêmes matériaux que les lames traditionnelles, et sont installées avec succès dans des milliers d'usines dans le monde entier - elles sont utilisées par plus de la moitié des entreprises Fortune 1000. Notre objectif principal est la sécurité, mais nous assurons que nous ne sacrifions pas l'efficacité ou la qualité de nos outils.\n<br />\nNous constatons que la plupart des problèmes peuvent être résolus avec plus d’information au sujet de la façon d'utiliser les outils et à quoi s'attendre des lames.

This product at first had some problems. I discussed it with the CEO. They were already in production to fix the issue. The knives that proved to be faulty were replaced at no charge.

This knife is excellent. It cuts everything great but is safe on skin. It will not cut your skin. Quality of the ceramic blade is good. I also like the auto-retracting feature.

There seems to be a flaw in the design of the knife. If the blade breaks off below the locking system, there is no way to get the broken blade out. The knife can not be taken apart without destroying it, so the knife itself becomes useless. I was hoping to be able to use this product in our plant but I am not sure at this time that we will be able to do that because of this issue. I bought replacement blades, but if you can't get the broken one out, then you can not use the replacement blades.Hi Margaret - thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, we really appreciate it.  Yes, this was a known issue which we have since fixed in current production - in the mean time you can remove the blade per video here https://youtu.be/pCcgjMBaHf0   - or, we can send you a new handle.   Thank you again for your business and support!  // TEAM SLICE // San Jose, California  Hi Margaret - thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, we really appreciate it.  Yes, this was a known issue which we have since fixed in current production - in the mean time you can remove the blade per video here https://youtu.be/pCcgjMBaHf0   - or, we can send you a new handle.   Thank you again for your business and support!  // TEAM SLICE // San Jose, California

More About Our Safety Utility Knife

What Is a Utility Knife Used For?

A utility knife is used to cut a wide variety of materials at home and in the workplace. Popular utility knife uses include opening packaging and cutting light construction materials such as insulation, foam, or rubber. Industrial applications vary widely. As the name suggests, a utility knife is a multipurpose tool.

Why Use a Retractable Blade Knife?

Retractable blades were the first major utility knife safety enhancement. When you're in the middle of a project, it's convenient to leave your knife's blade exposed so you can pick it up and use it immediately. But when (not if) you get interrupted or leave for a break, it's just as easy to forget and leave that blade exposed. This leads to accidents. A retractable safety utility knife solves this problem by automatically retracting the blade when the knife is not in use.

Is a Ceramic Utility Knife Breakable?

Slice blades are made of 100 percent zirconium oxide, second only to diamonds in hardness and much harder than stainless steel. Our utility knife blades are also thicker than steel blades and therefore much less likely to snap in two. Depending on your cutting material, abrasion may cause micro chips in the blade edge, but the overall performance of the blade won't be affected by this.

What Can I Cut With the Slice Auto-Retractable Utility Knife?

Slice utility knife blades can handle the same materials as steel utility knives. Our utility knives are compatible with two different blade-tip styles: rounded and pointed. Both styles are 24 mm long, allowing you to cut through thick materials like triple-walled corrugated.The 10554 ships with the 10526 rounded blade. For most applications, the rounded tip is safer. However, when you need to initiate your cut with a piercing action, such as with plastic wrap, plastic banding, fabric, or drywall, we recommend the 10528 pointed-tip blade.

How Often Do I Need to Replace the Blade?

Because we use extremely hard zirconium oxide, Slice blades retain their edge up to 10 times longer than steel. This means you'll need to replace your blade 10 times less often than you would with a typical utility knife. Our utility knife blades are also reversible, so once you're ready for a fresh cutting edge, you can just switch the position of your existing blade. That's why one Slice blade can replace up to 20 single-sided steel blades.
