Product Description

Get your hands on the ultra-safe and easy-to-use Slice® 10494 retracting knife. With its smart design, this knife ensures the highest level of safety while being comfortable to grip. The blade is exposed by simply squeezing it and retracts automatically as soon as you release it, making it ideal for preventing accidental cuts. Changing blades is quick and effortless, with no additional tools required. The blade's finger-friendly edge allows for safe handling while still providing effective cutting. Additionally, these blades are oil-free, chemically inert, rust-resistant, and last 11 times longer than traditional steel blades. The Slice® 10494 retracting knife is compatible with two optional blades: pointed (10525) or serrated (10523).
