I used to use a pair of scissors to open boxes, until the day I almost literally cut the pad of one of my fingers off. I switched to using a box cutter, but I’m still worried about cutting myself with that, too. With the Nimble One-Finger Safety Cutter, I could rip into boxes and packages and cut through up to three pieces of paper at once. – and I wouldn’t have to worry about cutting myself because the ceramic blade won’t cut into skin.
It’s made of silicone rubber, ABS plastic, and a zirconia ceramic blade. The silicone sleeve is yellow to make it easy to find in a drawer. To cut, slip the Nimble on your fingertip, hold your finger at a 45-degree angle, and “draw a line” to cut. When cutting through papers, you’ll want to have a cutting surface on your work table.
Since you don’t have to grip like you do with scissors, the Nimble is especially good for people with dexterity problems. The Nimble One-Finger Safety Cutter is $10 at The Grommet.
