I’ve always been able to appreciate a nice, sturdy, sharp razor knife when it comes to doing projects around the house, but I recently I tried one that topped all others. I had some picture framing to do, but having just moved, I couldn’t find my utility knife. Luckily, I happen to work for a company that sells them, so I put in an order for the Klein-Kurve® razor knife. I hadn’t actually used one before, but judging from its curved design and rubber grips, I thought it looked very comfortable to use.
Suffice it to say, when I got my new Klein-Kurve® home and laid into some heavyweight mat board, I was extremely impressed. If you’ve ever cut any very thick paper-based material with a razor knife, you’ve probably found that it’s very easy for the blade to waver mid-cut if you don’t have an absolute death grip on the knife, and that the top layer of paper can catch the blade and bunch up if the knife isn’t sharp enough. Well, neither of these was an issue with the Klein-Kurve®. Thanks to that curved shape and the grips I mentioned before, it’s much easier to get a good hold on the Klein-Kurve®, as opposed to standard, straight-bodied, smooth metal utility knives. And the blades are very sharp, and keep their edge for quite some time… I thought that maybe it was only working that well because it was brand new, but it’s still cutting great, and I haven’t even changed the blade yet.
As you can see from the photo, the Klein-Kurve® utility knife also comes with a great little bonus – a plastic holster that lets you clip the Klein-Kurve® right onto your belt.
