Long-last blade cuts replacement cost

SLICING saw and pocket penknife combine in a safety knife from Glamorgan-based Moving Edge.

The knife uses a slicing saw action within a "finger-safe" gap to improve its cut through a range of materials – tape, stretch wrap, twine, sacks and cardboard up to 2mm thick. Moving Edge claims the slicing action increases blade life up to four times.

Also incorporated are a material-piercing nose and a reinforced "thumb nail" for cutting tape on boxes without damage to either container or its contents. Knife price is £4.25 (01446-749111).
