Wow where has this been

7/15/2019 by Richard

I have used it 5-6 times in the week after unit was delivered. It works great, not the straightest of cuts but so much easier to use than a sharp sharp knife.
I bought two one for the kitchen and one for my garage. Whatcan I do to get a straighter cut?

This tool works great. It is saving me many frustrating minutes trying to get a package open without ending up with little cuts all over from the plastic.More > < Less


A bit of a disappointment...

Given that I have stroke related challenges with my hands, I was disappointed to see it come in the packaging it was designed to 'defeat'! Other
Other than that problem it's good.

I used this to open other products I received at the same time. I suffered no skinned knuckles or frustration. Slitit is a fantastic product.

About Slitit

The Cutting Edge

The Slitit clamshell opener was born out of frustration, a word often used when talking about this tricky type of plastic packaging. Maker Caitlin Schwartz struggled to open a packaged hair straightener and even injured herself in the process. She paired up with her sister Kirsten—a fellow fine artist—and their mechanical engineer father to create a better-working and safer solution.

Slitit’s stainless steel blade is molded into a contoured, tubular handle. This design choice was a deliberate one. The handle gives you a good grip on the task at hand, plus it protects your actual hands from cut plastic shards while you’re slicing away. Best of all, this cutter is simple to use. Just line it up, push or pull along the problematic packaging, and rejoice at how much easier that was.
