Slice, based in Florida, was founded in 2008 by TJ Scimone. Always looking for new ideas, he collaborated with renowned designers to reimagine everyday cutting products, making them safer and easier to use. Since that time, Slice has developed a collection of award-winning safety cutters that increase productivity, lower costs, and, most importantly, reduce injuries. Slice tools are now used in major industries around the world.
Scimone founded Slice as a way to help fund long-term care for his autistic son. One percent of all Slice sales are donated to autism research.
Slice values safety, innovation, quality, simplicity, and community. These core values are evident in everything we do, from tool design to customer service.
Why Ceramic Blades?
Slice blades are wider and include a small micro edge that does the actual cutting. The grind angles create a blade that cuts materials effectively, but resists cutting skin. Slice blades disperse their pressure, requiring much more force to pierce skin’s tough outer layer than narrow steel blades.
Slice ceramic blades offer many other advantages over steel. They:
- Never rust
- Are chemically inert
- Don’t require any oily coating or lubricant
- Are safe up to 1600 degrees Celsius
- Are non-sparking, non-conductive, and non-magnetic
- Are maintenance-free
- Don’t require sharps box disposal
- Are recyclable
- Are safe for clean rooms
