The Slice Smart Blade Cutter features Ergo-Pull Smart-Retract technology. This retracts the blade when it loses contact with cutting surface, even supposing finger is still on the slider-button. Pull vs. push ergonomic slider action reduces finger strain and helps prevent injury from extra force at the end of the cutting movement.
From the Manufacturer
Why Ceramic Blades? Hardness & Sharpness.
On the Mohs hardness scale, Metal blades are rated 5.5 vs. Ceramic blades at 8.2, second only to diamonds. Harder edges maintain sharpness longer, cut better, and require replacement far less often. Actually, depending on use, you’ll be able to go weeks or months without having to replace a single ceramic blade. They also last up to 10x longer!
Saving Money Just Makes Sense.
A single Slice ceramic blade is equivalent up to 10 high-end double-sided metal blades or up to 20 high-end single sided metal blades. When it comes to safety, less blade changes also mean less risk of injury.
Small Ceramic Scissors
Slice 10544 Ceramic Scissors bring our proprietary finger-friendly grind to safety scissors. Used in industrial, institutional, and educational settings alike, these lightweight scissors are ambidextrous and durable. Soft-touch finger grips line their tough glass-filled nylon handles for the ideal mix of strength and comfort. As with all our ceramic blades, these are non-sparking and chemically inert.
Cut many types of materials.
Our scissors cut materials effectively and they resist cutting skin. Some materials, such as flexible plastics and woven fabrics, require a puncturing motion to initiate cuts in the midst of the material (as opposed to cuts that originate at the edge). These pointed scissors do just that.
Pointed Ceramic Scissors
The Slice 10546 Ceramic Scissors (Pointed) combine the best of our original 10544 scissors—our finger-friendly safety blade and a comfort grip lining—with new features like wider finger loops for larger hands and a pointed tip. With the same durable construction that made the 10544 Slice scissors popular, the 10546 pointed scissors’ blades last up to 11 times longer than metal blades, and are non-conductive, easy to clean, and never rust.
Our safety is in the blade
When industrial safety managers first encounter our products, they try to compare them with existing safety knives, but Slice tools are in a class of their own. Whilst other manufacturers redesigned their knife handles for safety, we’re the only company that redesigned the blade itself.
About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Safe. Elegant. Innovative.
How did you get a hold of the idea for this product?
Slice has a commitment to donate 1% of all sales to fund Autism research, primarily through our main benefactor, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford University.
What makes your product special?
Our proprietary blade manufacturing process combines a unique sharpening angle and thicker ceramic material, resulting in a very unique patented blade that’s safer to the touch vs. metal, and requires pressure to initiate the cut — via our handles. Hence, general blade handling and blade-replacement with Slice ceramic blades is infinitely safer vs. those same activities with traditional metal blades, yet still allows for a wide range of cutting applications.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
You can’t simply duplicate a metal blade in ceramic material and achieve what we have created with our current products. There’s a tremendous amount of engineering required on not only the blades and handles individually, but there’s also an unbelievable amount of engineering required on the combination of the handles and the blades working together in order to produce the desired balance of safer-usage and cutting capability. Even today, for our next generation of products that are currently under development, we spend the majority of our time finding the right balance between handle and blade through trial and error and what seems like endless prototypes. The best part definitely has to be seeing peoples first-time reactions when cutting cardboard with Slice and they realize how awesome the Slice ceramic blade is.
