Ski Blade / Utility knife

Ski Blade
Ski Blade

An innovative solution for a safer blade. Based on exhaustive research on ergonomics for using ordinary utility knife, we found out that most stress applies on wrist and finger joints. This utility knife requires no wrist twist movements or finger actions. It comes with a removable safety lock and, users can simply push and pull to cut. The blade only appears when pressure is applied; therefore, users would never get injured by mistakenly cutting themselves. It works for both right handed, left handed, young people and older people. It will cut curves and also 2 separated spring loaded legs would glide on a ruler to make perfect straight cuts
