We've seen dozens of box cutters, but never a form factor like this:
That's cutting tools manufacturer Slice's silicone Safety Cutter Ring, an $8 gizmo that basically gives you a reimagined fingernail.
It was designed by industrial design consultancy Herbst Produkt (U.S.-based, despite the spelling), who have also filled out the rest of Slice's offerings with an incredible array of fresh forms: Box cutters, scalpels, utility knives, scrapers, scissors. Each tool is beautiful in its own right:
"With a distinct point-of-view the SLICE brand has a confidence that is unmatched," writes the design firm. "Herbst has driven a disciplined approach and built a visual design language with a signature DNA that reinforces the SLICE brand attributes and exudes the confidence and boldness that their tools provide."
