Ergonomic Utility Knife

Ergonomic Utility Knife was designed from the original utility knife.

A utility knife is a cutting tool for a variety of purposes. It is used in various trades and crafts. It is designed to be mobile, where you can take it along with you, as it is lightweight, easy to carry and use.

Most people have one in their stationary drawer to use of opening packages and boxes, or to cut through tape or cord.


It is interesting that there are many names for this tool, such as Stanley knife, Japanese knives (in Israel and Switzerland), penknife, stationary knife, razor blade knife, or simply as cutters.

Why get an ergonomic utility knife?

If you find yourself doing lots of work with your utility knife, it would be worth it to get invest something that helps you have a better hand posture.

Applying Ergonomics is as important as using an ergonomic knife.

It contributes to high productivity, avoidance of illness and musculoskeletal injuries. As stated on the osha.gov, examples of ergonomics risk factors are found in jobs requiring repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertion of the hands; frequent or heavy lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying heavy objects. This also includes prolonged repetitive activity and awkward postures.

Also, we all save money by preventing these risk factors rather than trying to cure them.

Although ergonomics is more commonly applied to the office, ergonomics should apply to industrial workers and also in the home.
