Welcome to dickblick
This is the world's first ceramic box cutter. Its double-edged ceramic blades are 10 times sharper (and last 10 times longer) than traditional metal blades. A revolutionary, patent-pending design protects hands from accidental injury. Replacement blades are stored in the back of the handle.
Slice makes its products with a high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide. Next to diamonds, zirconium oxide is the most durable substance on Earth. Ceramic blades are preferable to metal blades for many reasons. They're ultra-sharp (and stay that way for years), they resist wear and tear, and they won't stick, rust, stain, or dull.
Attached to soft-touch grips, Slice Cutters are also ergonomic, lightweight, and balanced for ease of use.
A portion of every sale of a Slice product helps fund autism research. By purchasing Slice products, you're helping to find a cure for the millions of children and their families who live with autism every day.
How hard is ceramic?
The scientific MOHS scale rates the hardness of various substances. German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs came up with the scale in 1812. He rated the 10 minerals available at the time from 1 to 10. Scientists have been using Mohs' scale ever since, adding more substances as they're discovered. Diamonds are still at the top of the scale. The hardness of Slice ceramics is pretty close to diamonds — approximately 8.2.
How hard is metal?
Where does metal show up? Way down the scale, sad to say. The steel blade of your average knife is a mere 5.5. Pretty flimsy, Slice thinks.
Ceramic is better than metal.
Compared to any metal (even high-carbon steel), ceramic is sharper, harder, and stays that way longer. That's why you'll find ceramics used in satellites, race cars, and even operating rooms. Many surgeons, for example, prefer ceramic, not metal, for bone-replacement operations.

Less than all that
Comments about Slice Cutters:
The ergonomic handle is the best feature. The blade is not exposed enough to make cutting corrugated very well.If yiu need to cut or craft corrugated objects, rather than plain paper, use a regular box cutter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ceramic safety cutter stylish and sharp
Great for slicing open cello wrapped books and magazines and taped boxes of books. The blade is tiny and sharp and less likely to cut into a book cover. Not good for slicing through thick cardboard but then again you can clip it to your keychain and carry it around. If I forget that I have it, I don't have to surrender it at the TSA. And it's pretty and comfortable to hold.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for Older Children
By Cat Pounce
from Fargo, ND
I use these in my art classes with older children (ages 9 and up). I would never use conventional art knives for fear of accidents, but this works very well for cutting paper for collage, scrapbooking and pop-up cards/books. Used on a cutting mat it never slips. The handle is very comfortable. Blick has the best price by far.
