What Is a Craft Knife?
Craft knives, sometimes referred to as precision cutters or precision knives, include a variety of tools specialized for fine handling and detailed, free-form cuts. Craft knives allow for fine motor control, similar to a pen. Some, like a precision paper cutter, are designed to cut specific materials, but most precision cutters are effective with a wide variety of materials.
What Are Craft Knives Used For?
A crafting knife is a type of precision knife and, as its name suggests, it is primarily used for crafting with materials such as paper, stencils, and pliable sculpting material. But because they are user-friendly and are easier to hold they are used for a variety of applications. Typically, a craft knife cuts thinner materials than a box cutter, but depending on the length of the blade, some precision or craft knives can easily handle thicker materials like foam or corrugated packaging.
Slice was founded in 2008 by TJ Scimone. Always looking for new ideas, he collaborated with renowned designers to re-imagine 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.
