To best understand what it's capable of I will tell you how it works. What you can't see in the picture is a tiny piece of ceramic held in the gray end. Call it a blade, call it a nub, there's not a great word for it but basically it's a pointy bump. The opener is used by gripping (between thumb and forefinger) the blue part and sliding the gray end along what you want to cut with the entire flat bottom edge (gray and blue) flat against the surface to be sliced. As that tiny piece of ceramic, which only protrudes about as much as a layer of cardstock, drags along the surface it slices it very neatly. The amazing bit is that the ceramic really doesn't feel all that sharp. You can even feel it with your finger without fear of cutting skin.
There are a lot of reasons this design / material choice is very elegant.
If you're familiar with ceramic skip this paragraph. If you're not familiar with ceramic blades they offer a lot of advantages over steel. For one they don't rust, and I don't mean they don't rust like stainless steel (which is really just stain resistant steel, to varying degrees) I mean that since rust is formed from iron, an "ingredient" of steel but not present in a piece of ceramic, this thing is no more able to rust than a ceramic coffee mug. Another advantage to ceramic is edge life. All steel, no matter how hard, still has some capacity to be "bent" and that ability to deform means it will eventually lose its edge. Ceramic, by contrast, behaves more like a stone.Read more ›
There seems to be some debate on its efficacy when opening plastic packages. It came in a plastic clam shell type package, ironically requiring some sort of tool to extricate it before it could be tested. That left me with a scrap package to test it upon. It does not work on plastic packaging with the same ease as with paper. Instead of an effortless glide, moderate to firm pressure was needed. Had plastic packaging been listed as one of its selling points, I would have downgraded it a star or more. For such packages, I'd consider this a "can be used for" rather than a "well suited for" product.
As for other uses such as coupons, CD/BD/DVD packages, etc., it fills a need that is unmatched by typical products. It can be used for opening envelopes without damaging contents. It works very well on plastic similar in thickness to camera film. You could use it to trim photographs, open shipping boxes from Amazon, and all sorts of things where other tools would be a compromise or a carry potential risk of damaging what's underneath.
Plus, you can stick it to your refrigerator to have it handy, even if it's the type of fridge that magnets often have problems with.
Depending on the price, it might be well worth getting several to give as gifts, especially if the 4-3 deal is available.
Incidentally, if you are looking for something to use specifically to cut coupons, it would be worth getting for that alone.
I checked it out on Amazon and found this one- for about $2.00 less+ free shiping. I bought about 20 of them and gave them to co-workers and family for stocking suffers...People thought I had stock in the company the way I was pumping it up. I keep mine on the fridge and it always right where i need it when i need it.
My best purchase in months...
I bought one for my niece who has bad carpel tunnel and using scissors to do coupons was hurting her hands.
Update: I forgot to mention how great it is for CDs and any other thing that has shrinkwrap! Instead of fiddling around I can just go swip-swipe and I'm in. It can scratch the item of course, so care is needed.

Not great. The teeny tiny edge that cuts looks like it has pushed up into the plastic casing. It will not cut one piece of paper well.Published 1 month ago by cherpresley
