Collection of award-winning, innovative cutting tools that will help increase your safety, productivity, reduce injuries and reduce costs.
Slice was founded in 2008 by TJ Scimone. Always looking for new ideas, he collaborated with renowned designers to reimagine everyday cutting products, making them safer and easier to use. Since that time, Slice has developed a collection of award-winning safety cutters that increase productivity, lower costs, and, most importantly, reduce injuries. Slice tools are now used in major industries around the world.
Scimone founded Slice as a way to help fund long-term care for his autistic son. One percent of all Slice sales are donated to autism research.
These are the ideas at the heart of the Slice brand. They guide us in every aspect of our business.
Fresh Thinking = Smart Design
Slice’s innovative tools reflect our fresh thinking. We collaborate with acclaimed designers to reimagine every aspect of tool use from the perspective of safety, ergonomics, and efficiency. The result is a cleanly-designed line of durable, effective, cutting tools.
Slice makes safer versions of traditional tools like box cutters, utility knives, pen cutters, and craft knives. We've also developed ceramic micro-blade technology with innovative tools like our Precision Cutter and Safety Cutter. Whenever possible, Slice tools are ambidextrous and offer tool-free blade replacement. Slice Products Ltd. Is a proud member of the British Safety Council.
Our Safety Is in the Blade
Only a small portion of the risks users face are addressed by new handle designs, which is why Slice redesigned the blade.Most safety cutter brands look for new ways to design their handles. While these innovations are helpful, they don’t solve the core problem. After all, what cuts you: the handle or the blade?
Slice went back to basics and developed a safer blade, using advanced ceramics. Because steel is a relatively soft material, it dulls quickly. To give steel blades a useful working life, manufacturers sharpen it far beyond what’s necessary. This workaround sacrifices worker safety for longevity. Slice uses 100 percent zirconium oxide, an extremely hard material that doesn’t need to be oversharpened in order to maintain its edge. This allowed us to develop a proprietary grind that creates a finger-friendly, touchable blade that holds it edge an average of 11.2 times longer than steel. Cross-sections of Slice ceramic blades and typical metal blades illustrate that the wider Slice blade requires more force to penetrate skin.
The difference that blade thickness makes is clear: metal cuts skin easily while Slice ceramic blades require much more force before they’ll pierce skin.
Slice blades are wider and include a small micro edge that does the actual cutting. The grind angles create a blade that cuts materials effectively, but resists cutting skin. Slice blades disperse their pressure, requiring much more force to pierce skin’s tough outer layer than narrow steel blades. Slice ceramic blades offer many other advantages over steel. They:
