I've been using the Ceramic Utility Knife for a few years now as part of the assembly process for Gearward. Since I have to make thousands of cuts through Kevlar and Duct Tape, I was looking for a knife that would make clean cuts for as long as possible.
To give you a sense of just how long the edge lasts, I made over 7,000 Keychain Duct Tapes without having to change the blade of my first Ceramic Utility Knife. At 1.875" wide x 7,000, that corresponds to slicing through 1,093 feet of Duct Tape. Try that with a steel box cutter.
Unlike a standard cutter, which tends to rust pretty quickly, the Ceramic Utility Knife is 100% non-metallic. The blade is ceramic, and all of the handle components are made from ABS plastic.
The blade is a snap-off style, with 11 separate sections. You cut with the first section until it gets dull, and then you snap off the tip, and extend a fresh section. What's so great about this is that you can get a fresh cutting edge whenever you need it.
If you're looking for handy knife with relentless cutting performance, the Ceramic Utility Knife is worth having in your toolbox. It's a major upgrade over a standard box cutter.
