Smart-Retracting Utility Knife
The Slice® Smart-Retracting Utility Knife combines safety and intelligence to reduce injuries and increase productivity. The tool’s blade is the safest you’ll find in the workplace. Its unique finger-friendly® blade is safe to the touch and therefore causes fewer and less severe injuries than traditional blades. To further protect your frontline workers, the blade instantly self-retracts when it loses contact with its cutting material. The Ergo Pull™ slider that extends the blade reduces hand strain because users slide this feature in the same direction as the cut. While a durable reinforced nylon handle provides strength and comfort, so the multi-purpose knife is ideal for industrial usage - especially as it has a longer blade for thicker cuts. This clever tool is suitable for left- and right-handed workers, and an integrated lanyard hole and tool-free blade-change mechanism help frontline workers operate more efficiently.

What Is a Utility Knife Used For?
Keep in mind, there are different utility knife blade types suited to different kinds of cuts. Any material that requires a piercing action to initiate the cut is best suited to a pointed-tip blade, such as the Slice 10528 blade. Rounded-tip blades, like Slice’s 10526 blade, offer added protection against accidental injuries.
Although Slice knives are much safer than typical steel blades, any knife is potentially dangerous. Make sure that you learn how to use a utility knife safely by following common sense precautions: cut at an angle away from the body, reduce distractions, and cut in one smooth motion where possible.
Why Choose a Slice Ceramic Utility Knife?
Why are typical blades so dangerous? Steel is a relatively soft material, so to extend a steel blade’s working life, manufacturers sharpen it to an unsafe level. This workaround sacrifices user safety. Slice uses 100 percent zirconium oxide, an extremely hard material that holds its edge, so we don’t need to over-sharpen our blades in order to make them effective. Our proprietary grind cuts materials effectively but resists cutting skin. So a Slice knife has a smarter handle and a safer blade.
What is Smart Retract Technology?
How Does the Ergo Pull™ System Reduce Strain?
This may seem like a small adjustment, but the results are impressive, especially when considering cutting tasks repeated over long shifts where there is a potential for cumulative strain injuries. In testing done by United States Ergonomics (an independent third-party testing agent), Ergo Pull™ technology resulted in less forearm effort, upper arm effort, and hand muscle strain than the standard push-blade lever utility knife.
