Utility Blades (Rounded Tip)
Slice® Utility Blades (Rounded Tip) are compatible with several tools, including Slice metal-handle utility knives, mini scrapers, the Edge Utility Cutter, and the EDC Pocket Knife. Designed to cut everything but you, these blades boast a finger-friendly® edge that never rusts.
The utility blades are thinner than typical Slice blades, making the cutting process a breeze. In addition, the rounded tip is a safer alternative to traditional blades, reducing your risk of injury. And they last, on average, 11.2x longer than comparable metal blades.
From cutting corrugated cardboard to slicing plastic banding, Slice makes people and places safer. Learn more below.

What Can I Use Ceramic Utility Blades For?
Slice®’s thicker, more durable ceramic blades do not flex in the same way as metal, so they’re not ideal for any application that exerts a side load or requires the blade to bend. But typical uses, such as hand trimming solder from metal parts or plastic flash from injection-molded products are just as easy—and much safer—with Slice utility blades.
What’s the Advantage of Ceramic Blades?
For that reason, the best utility blades to reduce hand and finger injuries are Slice blades. Our proprietary grind creates an edge that cuts materials effectively and is safe to the touch. Slice blades also hold their cutting edge, on average, 11.2 times longer than steel. This means fewer blade replacements and therefore fewer opportunities for injury.
Other advantages of advanced ceramics come from the properties of our ceramic material. Zirconium oxide is chemically inert, non-sparking and non-magnetic. It can be heated up to 1600 degrees Celsius and requires no special oil or lubricant coating to maintain sharpness.
