After owning and trying 3 other package openers, I was pleasantly surprised at how good this one was! It felt comfortable to use and never once did I think I was going to get injured.

My son now goes about telling folks "we have a surgeon at our house who takes care of things like that!" when he sees some one trying to cut open one of those plastic shells. We find that it really makes it much easier to open kids gifts (which seem to be cursed by an excess of that hard plastic casing), and it's nice not to have to worry that you're going to hurt yourself when you're opening up some little item you bought!

Please use utmost care when using this particular opener ! On the 22nd of May 2011 I was using this tool to open a package I had purchased earlier in the day. I was having to push very hard on the plastic: then all of a sudden I hit a soft part and Bingo 12 stiches, I cut it very deeply in the area between the thumb and forefinger on the back of my hand. It took 6 stiches on the inside and 6 on top to close this. Whose fault was it mine for thinking a safety product that should have operated correctly would have; and not taking the precaution to figure out why it was pushing so hard. I learned a lesson at the ripe young age of 63. I cannot blame the tool but can blame the tools protective cover. It doesn't always work the way it was designed!!
Caveat emptor - Buyer Beware!!!

UPDATE--A hunk of plastic on the head broke off yesterday. Still sort of works. Not really clear on how it's supposed to work. Is it push or pull? Two of us fussed with it and we both had problems testing it on thin cardboard.

Better to buy a cheap pair of scissors and just dedicate them to cutting plastic packages.

This opener is a life saver! It does exactly what it is intended to do. Easily and Safely opens those annoying plastic packages. I can't wait until Christmas morning to really give it a workout. Thanks for a wonderful invention.

This is a nice sharp blade that works much better than scissors and is safer than a box cutter for getting into those impossible to open clam shell packages that put a lot of people in the emergency room.

What a great product! I just received one as a gift, and used it for about 8 different things in one week. It works perfectly!

Love it. It really makes getting into packages easy, even those hard to open packages like the Surgeon comes packaged in. It will open envelopes, but not very well or easily. For that,I have an envelop opener.
