Love the box cutter, it is handy and works great. I am certain it will be durable.
Solid, lasting

Have owned this product since 2013 and use it on a weekly basis. Well- and purposefully-built.
Nice but not real practical

This is pretty large and does a good job if all you're trying to cut through is tape on a box. Heavy paper tape and thick cardboard are just too much for this, I found that I could use it on roughly 1 out of every 5 packages I received, do it sits in a drawer now and gathers dust while I use my handy dollar razor blade knife.
Just Doesn't "Cut" It for Me

I bought this to cut up the many boxes that get delivered to my house prior to putting them out to be picked up for trash/recycling. But I can't get the blade to protrude far enough to cut many of the cardboard boxes. It is safe, which is great, but not effective.
Easy to use

Box Cutter - Auto Retractable

High-performance box cutter designed for ease of use and safety. Ceramic blade made from high-tech Zirconium Oxide, which lasts longer than steel and never rusts. Collection designed by Michael Graves, Karim Rachid, Alfredo Muccino, and Scot Herbst.


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.
