The Slice brand concentrates on core values like Safety, Quality, Community and Simplicity; and all of these values are reflected in the quality and design of their exceptional products. A well-designed craft knife is an invaluable addition to your selection of craft tools and the Slice Craft Knife with the Safety Cap design is proof of this.
The Slice Craft Knife (Safety Cap) includes the same safety blade as the 10548 model but also features our innovative safety cap. You’ll never lose the protective covering for the Slice 10589 because it’s part of the handle design. To expose the blade, twist the cap to unlock it, slide it down the handle and twist again to keep it out of the way while you work. The Slice Craft Knife (Safety Blade) uses the same replaceable blades as the 10548 knife with the same great safety features: finger-friendly, non-sparking, chemically inert, safe up to 1600 degrees Celsius, and never rusting.

What Is a Precision Knife?
Precision knives are sometimes referred to as precision cutters or craft knives, a variety of tools specialized for fine handling and detailed, free-form cuts. Precision 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 Precision Knives Used For?
These knives are used for a variety of applications, most notably in arts, industrial, or laboratory settings. Typically, a precision 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.
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. The same kind of precision knife is ideal for detailed laboratory or industrial work that requires a delicate touch.
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 per cent of all Slice sales are donated to autism research.
What Sets Slice Precision Knives Apart?
Slice® precision knives combine safety and effectiveness. Their blades are made of extremely hard zirconium oxide and an advanced ceramic which stays sharper far longer than steel. Unlike traditional precision knives, a Slice precision knife blade maintains a finger-friendly® edge while cutting effectively. Their patent-pending sharpening process keeps fingers safe while giving you long-lasting cutting power.
Slice safety blades offer specialized advantages to specific industries, like blades that are non-sparking, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and blades that will never rust, therefore not requiring any oil coating and are safe to use in extreme or particular conditions like autoclaves. (Not all ceramic blades have the same material composition, so may not share all of these properties. Be sure to read the specifications and usages of each knife in the selection of knives representing the Slice range to guide you in your purchase).
