The Easy Cut-5000 Safety Cutter allows its users to make effective and efficient blade change within seconds with a simple squeeze of the ergonomic trigger handle and press of a button. Incorporated with a “Blade Vanishing Technology”, this ensures the safety of its users by providing them protection from accidental exposure to the blade. This feature allows the safety blades to automatically retract once it loses contact with the surface, preventing and reducing any possibility of cuts on the users during usage. The “Blade Vanishing Technology” reduces the thumb’s repetitive movements, decreasing the instance of a thumb injury that commonly happens with other box cutter blades. The patented blunt radius tip, multiple blade depth settings for cutting different types of boxes, natural blade retract mechanism, innovative snap-on lanyard, and several other features make this cutter a robust and safe cutting tool. The safety cutter also features a tape splitter which allows for quick tape cuts without the need for a sharpened blade.
