What Is a Carton Cutter?

Carton is generally considered to be thin (single-walled) corrugated cardboard or non-corrugated cardboard, also known as boxboard. By extension, carton cutters, also known as box cutters, are any tools designed to slice through these materials. When making your selection, keep in mind features that may be a priority in your workplace.

>While many people use utility knives for this purpose and handle designs vary, carton knives typically have a thin, flat rectangular handle with a sheath that slides over the housing to expose or protect the blade. Many use standard metal utility blades while others use (dangerous) snap-off metal blades.These tools are frequently smaller than standard utility cutters and fit easily in the palm of your hand.

How Are Slice Carton Cutters Safer?

At Slice® we design everything with safety in mind. This includes handle issues, such as minimizing blade exposure, but also goes much further because: what cuts you, the handle or the blade? All our blades feature our finger-friendly® edge—a safety grind unique to Slice blades. This proprietary double-angle grind cuts through materials effectively but is safe to the touch.

How Do I Change the Blade in the Slice Carton Cutter?

Slice is committed to easy no-tool blade changes and the 10585 is no exception. To change the blade, push the metal sheath into its protective blade-covering position. Then remove the orange housing by pulling it further down until the sheath is completely removed. Open the housing by pulling up the cover along the lengthwise, unhinged edge, just as you would a book. The old blade simply lifts out.

Ensure that the new blade lines up with the notch in the housing and close the housing. Before you slide the metal sheath back on, check for the notch on the bottom of the sheath. Line up the blade with this notch and slide the housing back in. This will ensure that the stopper on the housing lines up with the notch on the sheath, limiting how far down the sheath can slide.
