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. Despite its name, a crafting knife has uses well beyond the crafting world. Any application that requires precision and accuracy is well suited to this type of tool.

What Is a Craft Knife Used For?

While artists and crafters often choose a craft knife 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 craft knives are non-conductive, chemically inert, and don't require special oil coatings.

How to Use a Craft Knife Safely

First of all, be sure you choose the right knife for the job. The Slice 10548 knife ships with a 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 10520 blade. Always be sure to replace the safety cap after use and work in a distraction-free environment whenever possible.

How Do I Replace the Blade? How often?

Craft knife 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 craft knives and blades. To replace the finger-friendly blade in a Slice craft knife, simply pull out the blade and insert a new one.
