This knife is an economical step up in safety over a typical push button utility knife that can be left with the blade exposed if the user forgets to retract it. The spring loaded safety hood always covers the blade when it is not in use, yet moves away with pressure on the tip in order to start cutting. The hood’s trigger allows the user to manually hold the hood open in order to see the blade’s path when cutting to exact tolerances.
The handle’s proven ergonomic shape is comfortable for use in either hand. The blade is adjustable to three depth settings. A convenient belt holster is also available.
