Is It Safe?
The fully retractable design of the Cosco Jiffi-Cutter Compact Utility Knife with Retractable Blade allows for the blade to be safely retracted to keep out of sight and out of mind. The best box cutters are also the safest ones.
While this pocket knife features a safe, retractable design, it still requires safe handling because this is one of the sharpest pocket knife brands out on the market. Interestingly, one of the first rules in box cutter safety is to keep the blade sharp. This is because sharp blades will cut, while dull blades will only tug and pull. This means a dull blade is much more likely to cause a slip of the hand and a cut to your fingers or wrist. Whenever a blad becomes dull, replace the blade with a new, sharp blade. Also, do not use a broken blade as it's extremely dangerous.
How Do You Use a Box Cutter Pocket Knife?
When using your Cosco Jiffi-Cutter Compact Utility Knife with Retractable Blade, be sure to keep the blade as short as possible. Keeping the blade shorter actually allows you to cut much easier and reduces any risk of your hand slipping and slicing yourself. When cutting an object, be sure to angle the knife away from you. Cutting at an angle away from your body ensures your safety if your hand slips. Also, keep your non-cutting hand and your thumb on your cutting hand away from the blade while you cut. Once finished using your best box cutter knife, retract it right away. Countless times, people have mindlessly set down their box cutter with the blade still sticking out and have nicked themselves when they reached to pick it back up. Last but not least, consider using gloves while you cut; they'll only add an extra layer of protection so there's really no reason not to.
