Pacific Handy Cutter – Over 60 Years of Industry Leading Cutting and Safety Solutions
Pacific Handy Cutter is known as the leader and innovator in Safety Cutting Tools, but PHC got their start when they invented the original flat box cutter – the Handy Cutter.
In 1950, Herbert Lightburn recognized the market demand for a low cost cutting tool that could open shipping cartons more efficiently than a handheld razorblade. Lightburn developed and patented the instantly recognizable original Handy Cutter, which standardized the way grocery chains opened packaged goods and quickly emerged as the preferred cutting tool for stockroom operations and shipping departments across the country.
Since then, Pacific Handy Cutter has become the leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of safety cutting tools for the store supply, industrial and retail markets.
PHC also produces a wide variety of utility knives, razor blades, and accessories offering the broadest assortment of cutters and complementary products in the industry.
