The SliceÃÂ® 10593 auto-retractable utility Scraper is another finger-friendlyÃÂ® addition to our expanding line of safety tools. It features a rounded-tip 10526 safety blade housed in a sturdy, ergonomic, reinforced Nylon handle with soft grips for user comfort.
From the Manufacturer
Why Ceramic Blades? Hardness amp; Sharpness.
On the Mohs hardness scale, Metal blades are rated 5.5 vs. Ceramic blades at 8.2, second only to diamonds. Harder edges maintain sharpness longer, cut better, and require replacement far less frequently. In fact, depending on use, you can go weeks or months without having to replace a single ceramic blade. They also last up to 10x longer!
Saving Money Just Makes Sense.
A single Slice ceramic blade is equivalent up to 10 high-end double-sided metal blades or up to 20 high-end single sided metal blades. In terms of safety, less blade changes also mean less risk of injury.
Manual Utility Scraper
Slice scrapers use our 10526 (rounded tip) and 10528 (pointed tip) utility blades in a sturdy handle that holds the blades steady for comfortable, safe scraping. The handle has two preset blade positions to protect the blade and user when the tool is not in use.
Soft Touch Comfort Grip
Featuring soft-touch comfort grips and durable glass-filled nylon construction, this utility scraper is designed to last through hours of scraping while reducing hand strain.
Auto-Retractable Utility Scraper
Compared with manual scrapers, auto-retractable scrapers typically risk causing hand strain as the user absorbs pressure in the thumb that keeps the blade extended. Slice solves this problem by introducing SureScrape, a mechanism that reduces strain so users donÃ¢ÂÂt have to choose between safety and comfort.
Our safety is in the blade
Because Slice brings safety to ceramic cutters. The technology for advanced ceramics has existed for years but Slice is the first company to harness its advantages and innovate a new breed of safety knives. We developed a blade-manufacturing process that creates an effective, durable, and finger-friendly edge thatÃ¢ÂÂs not available in any other ceramic cutter.
About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Safe. Elegant. Innovative.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Slice has a commitment to donate 1% of all sales to fund Autism research, primarily through our main benefactor, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford University.
What makes your product special?"p"Our proprietary blade manufacturing process combines a unique sharpening angle and thicker ceramic material, resulting in a very unique patented blade thatÃ¢ÂÂs safer to the touch vs. metal, and requires pressure to initiate the cut Ã¢ÂÂ via our handles. Hence, general blade handling and blade-replacement with Slice ceramic blades is infinitely safer vs. those same activities with traditional metal blades, yet still allows for a wide range of cutting applications.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?"p"You canÃ¢ÂÂt simply duplicate a metal blade in ceramic material and achieve what we have created with our current products. ThereÃ¢ÂÂs a tremendous amount of engineering required on not only the blades and handles individually, but thereÃ¢ÂÂs also an incredible amount of engineering required on the combination of the handles and the blades working together in order to produce the desired balance of safer-usage and cutting capability. Even today, for our next generation of products that are currently under development, we spend the majority of our time finding the right balance between handle and blade through trial and error and what seems like endless prototypes. The best part definitely has to be seeing peoples first-time reactions when cutting cardboard with Slice and they realize how awesome the Slice ceramic blade is.
