FAQ

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.
