iSlice Magnetic Cutting Tool


Product Information

You won't believe how fantastic our iSlice opener is until you try it for yourself. It easily opens plastic wrapping from CDs and DVDs, and hard "clamshell" plastic packaging. It clips coupons and recipes with ease. And it does all of this safely, without the risk of cuts, thanks to the innovative ceramic blade. Plus, it's magnetic, so it's easy to access when stored on a fridge. When cutting on a hard surface, such as a countertop or table, always use a protective barrier to avoid scratching surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Tool I love the iSlice cutting tool. I use it to open packages, cut the address section off of catalogs and magazines before recycling, and clipping coupons. I've given several as gifts and they are always very well received. Love that it has a magnet so that it is easy to find when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know how but it works! This is a great little gadget. Love that it hangs out on my fridge (magnetized). Don't even know where the blade is exactly - cuz it would be pretty hard to cut yourself - but it cuts open the toughest of those frustrating hard plastic cases with ease. And it doesn't cut so deep that it would cut the product inside,either. If only somehow they could combined it with an envelope opener and a bottle opener!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from convenient There have been a couple times I haven't been able to cut through plastic. But for the most part it is convenient. It hangs on my fridge which means no digging for it in a drawer. My favorite use is for unwrapping the plastic cover on CD's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy tool! This cutting tool is very handy for slicing open stubborn CD/DVD packaging, tape, or even vacu-seal packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World's Best Gadget This little cutter should have been invented the same time plastic "Clamshell" packaging was. It's the ONLY way I've ever found to open a CD, flashlight, wall hangers or anything encased in plastic without calling anger management. With the ISlice Magnetic Cutter Tool, it takes only two swipes across the packaging and it's done! I wouldn't trade for it. Plus, being magnetic, I can't lose sticks onto the measuring tape in my junk drawer and is always available when I need it. Good job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coupon cutting tool I must have 6 different tools for cutting coupons, but with the arthritis in my hands this is the only cutting tool I now use. I can cut two sheets of computer generated coupons at once with nice clean edges and little pressure yet can't cut myself i the process. Being small and compact, I can keep one in my purse to cut coupons from in-store flyers. Highly recommend the ISlice to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great opener With all the toys that come in impossible to open plastic these days, when I saw this I had to buy it. It works wonderfully. Definitely keep in mind though that it will scratch surfaces, so be careful what you open/cut things on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnetic cutting tool I made a big mistake and did not buy one for myself. The tiny ceramic cutter slices through tough packing tape and wispy thin gift wrap. It is harmless in the hands of children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts well, but should be done on a cutting surface This cuts well, but if using for coupons or envelopes, it needs to be used on a surface that is stronger than ceramic. (For example, if you drug it across a Formica counter, it would scratch it.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super handy This is a great little tool for cutting through both tough plastic packaging and thin paper (magazines, wrapping paper). In an effort to thin out my stacks and stacks of magazines, I've been using this little guy to cut and save just the things I need-- recipes, gift ideas, etc. It does seem to have dulled slightly with time; I wish I had gotten one for tough projects and a separate one for thin paper for a sharp, precise cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I've always struggled with the hard plastic clamshell packages, for fear of losing a finger or damaging the enclosed product. This nifty little gadget makes short, safe work of the packages and has a multitude of other uses as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tool This simple little tool does an easy job of slicing open that difficult clamshell plastic packaging. It works well on CDs and boxes, too. It isn't sharp to the touch, so it's safe around children. It really does make a great little stocking stuffer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect cure for clamshell packaging dread! I could not be more pleased with the effectiveness of this little gadget! Definitely in my top ten for stocking stuffers this year, including a couple more in my stocking !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for opening boxes Of course it is great for plastic, but it is also the BEST tool for opening taped boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool This little tool is great to open any product sealed in that hard molded plastic. Before when I had to open items I usually ended up with a really bad paper/ plastic cut and dulled my scissors. Now with a few slices I can get into those impossible packages easily. I have also used it to cut out articles or pages from magazines. Now I have one in the car and have used it to slice open packing boxes for recycling. I never know when it will come in handy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small/medium cutting Use this at work to break down boxes and open mail. It works easily and without too much pressure. I like that it is magnetic and can attach to a file cabinet. Not sure what the longevity of this item might be since it does show some wear near the blade. I used to open a clam shell package and it worked well. And that alone was worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Amazing Mouse When my husband first saw me using this thing around the holidays, he scoffed (as usual) and mumbled something about another stupid gadget...1 week later, after opening 'clamshell' plastic packaging, numerous kids' toys (which are wrapped up like Fort Knox) and several postal boxes he is a believer! Honestly, this thing is fantastic and we have it stuck to our fridge and feel fine asking our 3-year-old to grab it because it won't cut him! I'm thinking about buying a second one to have on the second floor just so that I never ever have to wrangle the packaging off of another ----- (fill in the blank) Amazing little mouse cutter thing. Everyone should buy at least one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little tool very useful in opening hard-to-open hard plastic packaging and not having to worry about kids accidentally get a hold of this and hurting themselves. highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Love This Little Guy! Works exactly as claimed. (Maybe a little too well…) I use this for all kinds of things, but mostly as a letter opener. If i'm not careful, however, it will score the letter inside the envelope too. So I always have to try and get in that little space above where the documents are and the edge of the envelope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Little Tool I was skeptical when I received the iSlice as a gift, but it has turned out to be a handy tool. It really does work better than scissors at cutting through hard plastic packaging. It's not hard to use. It cuts deeper than expected, so it's not so good for think plastic, such as the wrappers on CDs (it will scratch the plastic case). Also, it WILL cut your skin and draw blood, so don't try to try slicing your arm (as my husband did trying to prove it wouldn't cut you). Safer than scissors, but don't let children use it--it's surprisingly sharp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great doohickey Love this tool. It really does cut through the tough plastic packaging, had my doubts about that claim. Wish I had ordered more to give out as stocking stuffers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIFTY I like the functionality and safety of this little gadget. It does what it says it will!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gadget! I have a red one and it (unfortunately) disappears on the black sides of our new stainless fridge. I put a foil sticker on both sides, problem solved! Now it's easy to find on the fridge; magnetic surface is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have This cuts everything-including DVD packaging tape, "clamshell" packaging (the heavy-duty plastic) even the hard-to-open toy packaging. It is magnetic and easy to find. Especially good for people with arthritis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, love these! This is my second purchase of this little tool and I keep one at my desk, on the fridge, and in the laundry room. Great for DVD/CD packages, or anything shrink-wrapped. Saves a lot of frustration. Use mine to cut coupons and open mailed packages too.
