Slice® introduces a thin, durable seam ripper with a safer Slice ceramic blade. With its rounded tip and finger-friendly® edge, the installed 10536 blade prevents the accidental cuts and punctures so common with conventional seam rippers. Because of its 100 percent advanced ceramic material, the blade lasts up to 11 times longer than steel blades, is chemically inert, non-sparking, and never rusts. The 10596’s ergonomic design helps reduce hand strain associated with prolonged tool use, and its lanyard hole keeps the tool close by for quick fixes. Enjoyed in both crafting and manufacturing settings, this seam ripper smoothly hooks and cuts thread without excessive tugging at the surrounding material. Installed 10536 blade has a rounded tip; a pointed-tip 10537 blade is available separately.
