Westcott Ceramic Safety Knife (16475) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast + Easy + Safe - A Pleasure To Break Down Boxes I use the ceramic blade cutter to break down HUGE piles of boxes. I found the retracting ceramic blade easy to use and effective on the toughest of box break downs. It quickly retracted after each cut ensuring that I would not get cut. I normally wear safety gloves when breaking down boxes but with the retracting blade, cutting myself is no longer a concern. I used to have to place my blade down so I wouldn't get cut but now the retractable ceramic blade can stay in my hand because it is light and the blade isn't out to cut me. It is much faster, lighter, easier and safer from my old box cutters! A pleasure to break down boxes in the warehouse!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Full Size Retractable Ceramic Utility Cutter I feel sad to say that this product was not all it could be for me. I liked the ceramic blade feature but I found it difficult while using to keep the blade continually out. When I paused to readjust and took my hand off the "push here" the blade would retract and I would have to realign again. It may be better if the individual could choose when to retract the blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I used this product to get ready for the new school year. As a teacher we are required to pack up our room so classrooms can be waxed for the upcoming school year. I used it to unpack all the cardboard boxes in my classroom. The product is lightweight and easy to use. The feature that I like the most is that the blade is non-locking. There is no risk of cutting myself because the blade automatically retracts back inside. Great Product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, safe razor sharp cutting tool. Did not disappoint. I wanted a more convenient but safer cutting tool for minor kitchen cutting tasks eg. paper, plastic, cardboard storage containers. I had used a razor blade but was uncomfortable with the grandkids being curiouseing retractable and being very sharp to fit the bill precisely. Thanks for the design and utility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and easy to hold I have never used a ceramic knife like this before so I decided to give it a shot. It took a little while to get used to the action, but once I did the knife was easy to use. I feel safer carrying it because of the safety feature it has. Would recommend to anyone using on a daily basis or as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cutting blade I have wanted a safe box cutter for quite awhile. Ones I have purchased in the past are quite flimsy. This one is definitely not. It is very comfortable to hold and the blade does an amazing job. It totally retracts which is good safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job I used the utility cutter to breakdown a box, open that hard plastic packaging material. The cutter was easy to handle and cut through the items easily. I love the bright green color, as it is easy to find in my tool drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety Knife Even it made by ceramic but it still sharp and easy to cut everything. The important ceramic feature is that the knife won't let you to hurt yourself or someone else by accident. Safety is the top imortant for everything

I cannot figure out how to lock the blade so that I do not have to hold the button pushed forward. How does the blade stay in the out position?

Asked by: crafter
This is frustrating!! If I had my receipt I’d take this back ... might try anyway. I can’t use it while keeping a finger on the button. I will pay more for one locks. Very Disappointed:(

I bought this at Walmart, but how do you lock the blade in the out position? (It's a nuisance to use while always having to push the spring forward.)

Asked by: CRASH
For safety purposes, the blade on the ceramic cutter does not lock open. The button must always be held down for use.

I purchased one of these on Amazon for $5.99. I am currently comparing it to the SLICE ceramic retractable knife. So far I think it is a better value. I have about 100 manufacturing employees that each would need one. Do you have any discounts?
