KEYS TO SELECTING THE BEST SAFETY KNIFE
Selecting a safety cutter is not an easy task, you must have the experience behind a box cutter to understand the challenges that stocking associates face each day. The single greatest challenge for stocking associates currently is change. Asking an associate to change their box knife to something different is like asking them to trade something they are passionate about. This change represents all their abilities to overcome and learn their skills by trial and error and has delivered them to where they are today. Stocking associates are very passionate about their job and they are good at it.
Aside from change, determining the best safety knife for an organization can be somewhat difficult. There are so many knife manufacturers trying to incorporate safety devices into their tools that they tend to lose focus on who and how the knife is actually used.
The key to determine the best safety knife is one that delivers the features that can make anyone regardless of their experience level a pro at their job. Auto-retract blades, ergonomic triggers, tool free blade change, ambidextrous, edge guides and tape splitters are just some of the features that should be identified when selecting a safety knife.
Developing a safety knife would seem to be an easy task, but until you actually learn what an associate is faced with every day, you cannot have a realistic understanding of the challenges they face.
