Man's First Knife
This object is a photo of what is suggested to be one of the first knives known to man.

It was found in Blombos Cave, South Africa and made from pressure flaked silcrete estimated to be 37,000 years old.

The founder of Modern Specialties August J Lurie of Chicago, Illinois, patented on 1/16/1940, Patent # 2,187,590 a knife invention which is of various forms and consists of two complimentory halves that are secured together and hence, the modern utility knives and the box cutters of todays age and of tomorrow. 

Knife Safety
Worlds Safest Knife
Pictured here is the worlds safest knife, safe for kids and clumsy people alike. Although this looks like a great idea, don't expect to cut through anything with this knife other than a little bit of dust or cobwebs.
I believe that the most important part of knife safety is training and coaching. Please follow this link to our KuttO box cutter safety instructions and follow this link to our Modern Roofer and utility knife safety .
The new designs and gadgets developed to make knives perfectly injury free also seem to be a great idea, but are they really injury free, and do they cause other problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome?   

Do these knives allow for efficient user operation, do they last long and are they heavy duty? 

How expensive are they to buy and are they made overseas, possibly exporting our wealth
and jobs?
These are all important questions when considering the purchase of a safety knife.   Our KuttO knives are safe, efficient to use, heavy duty, made in a Veteran owned small business in Chicago Illinois, USA, and have a life time guarentee.
