The Slice 10554 auto-retractable utility knife responds to customer demand for a long blade to cut through thick materials, including triple-walled corrugated. When your cut is finished, the ceramic safety utility knife blade pulls back to keep you safe. Rotate the blade edge quickly and without tools to adjust for right or left-handed use. As with all our ceramic blades, the retractable utility knife blade is non-conductive, chemically inert, and never rusts.

    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.

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.
