Practically perfect in every way

4/16/2019 by Deborah

I have used the Nimble almost daily since receiving it. So easy to use. Its package is very eco-conscious and provides a fine way of storing this fine tool. I always feel delighted when I use it, as well as relieved by being able to open all sorts of things which previously were grievously difficult.

I do worry that the blade gets a bit dull after a lot of use, but perhaps my technique is not yet as perfect as the Nimble itself.

Most highly recommended.

Small and to the point!

This is a really good little tool! No longer will I risk bloodshed using a knife, scissors, or anything handy to open plastic seals,plastic packages, or taped boxes. Clipping recipes and articles is a snap too. It takes so little space in a drawer. You do have to be careful with the sharp part but it is very small - I'm thinking I will store this instead on a shelf in a very small clear dish or a shot glass even!More > < Less

About Nimble

Quick Cutter

Pop this finger safety cutter on to do the envelope opening, package opening, and coupon clipping job that scissors usually do.

Nimble does it with just a fingertip—and with a safer, ceramic blade. It easily glides through packing tape and up to three sheets of paper with a simple swipe.

This smart cutter was Simon Lyons’ entry in a design contest. The challenge was to make a problem solver for elderly and disabled persons. He won (yay!) because Nimble lets folks cut things without needing to grip, which is challenging for those with limited dexterity. And he made his design bright yellow so those with visual impairments can easily spot it in a drawer, too.

Like many great ideas, Simon’s design is smart for more than its original purpose. It’s perfect for anyone who wants cut things more quickly and easily.
