Line cutter / knife

Line cutter

Line Cutter is a design for art knife that makes it cut a straight line in an easier way.
In our daily life, it always happens when we need to cut a very straight line but we do not have both ruler and knife in our hand. Or the ruler is not long enough. And we make mistakes because the usual usage is neither really comfortable nor safe.

The wheels on both sides of Line Cutter keeps its balance and gets it rid of the limits on length. The design in shape let it fit the users' hands well.
