Cutting Tools

A Cut Above the Rest

Sleek, sharp, and safe. The trifecta of smart design is what makes these cutting and craft tools so appealing for all your tasks, projects, and hobbies.

TJ Scimone founded Slice to help fund long-term care for his son, Alex, who is autistic (Slice donates at least 1% of product sales to autism research). His tools are much more than just colorful versions of existing cutters. TJ works with top industrial designers—including Alfredo Muccino, Karim Rashid, Scot Herbst, Michael Graves, and Yves Behar—to really rethink
and redesign conventional cutting tools by focusing on ergonomics, safety and ease of use.

Four of the Slice tools—the Box Cutter, Safety Cutter, Precision Cutter, and Letter Opener—feature ceramic blades, which are extremely sharp, durable and won’t rust like metal blades do. Built-in safety innovations (like the Box Cutter’s non-slip protective handle) keep the blades away from fingers. No more accidents waiting to happen.

The Precision Cutter is ideal for intricate shapes with its contoured handle, and the Safety Cutter makes short work of coupon-clipping, shrink-wrap removal, and even cutting through the tough plastic of clam shell packaging. Both the Safety Cutter and the Letter Opener are magnetic, so you won’t lose them if you stick them to the fridge. Slice’s Stainless Steel Scissors are a fit for left- and right-handed users, and the Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezers do double-duty in the medicine cabinet and craft room. At home, in the office, and at school, these clever tools will inspire great projects.

    Would any of these tools cut through bookboard? Perhaps not in one pass, but with around five strokes?

    Hi Kannie - the most common size of book board is around 3/32 of an inch (almost 0.1" or 1/10") -- that's about the thickness of two stacked quarters. The Precision Cutter has a ceramic tip thats about .07" deep, which is one of the reasons it's so safe compared to traditional craft knives ---- so the Box Cutter would be a better bet for cutting the book board however you won't have the control you do with the Precision Cutter -- but I think 1/10" will be too thick for the Precision Cutter --- standard paper and photos are around .008" or thinner, which the Precision Cutter will cut through like butter :)

    Will the precision cutter work on fabric? Cotton quilting fabric, to be exact - one or two layers? I'd like more precision than I can get with a rotary cutter around curves and intricate shapes.

    @Carol: Hi Carol - thanks for your question. The Precision Cutter was mostly made for cutting thin sheets of plastic and various paper -- we are however working on a line of cutting tools for fabric --- thank you Carol :)

    I love you Daily Grommet but please: "Both the Safety Cutter and the Letter Opener are magnetic, so you won’t loose them if you stick them to the fridge."

    That should be "lose."

    Just moved my mother-in-law and loved using the box cutter for breaking down the boxes.

    Are these products sold separately? I'm interested in only one .. the Precision Cutter... I have similar to the others, which I am satisfied with.

    @bunni earle: Yes, you can order just the Precision Cutter. On the Slice featured page , click the down arrow next to OPTIONS (far right of video) and select the Precision Cutter.

    What will the precision cutter, cut through? Can I cut cloth, plastic, and carboard? Does the blade ever dull?

    Thank you,

    @ Margaret: The Precision Cutter was mostly made for cutting thin sheets of plastic and various paper; cuts through standard paper and photos are around .008" or thinner like butter. Cardboard that's 1/10" will be too thick. Uses a high-tech Zirconium Oxide blade that lasts longer than steel and never rusts.

    What is the difference between the box cutter and the auto-retractable box cutter? Does the first box cutter always have the blade exposed (if so, not very safe)?

    It has been over 2 days now and no-one has responded to my question...I guess the company doesn't want or need much business.

    @janet hohenberger: We apologize for the delay in response. Thank you for reaching out to us again. The first box cutter is fully retractable where you do it yourself. The second "auto-retractable" cutter automatically retracts back when slider button is released for added safety.
