With the shape of a standard utility knife, the 10490 is sure to appeal to those looking for a safer blade in a familiar handle. Its manual-retract slider offers three fixed cutting positions for different tasks, as well as a fully retracted position for safe storage. Keep spare Slice® blades handy with the onboard blade garage, which is designed to hold one spare blade. Choose from compatible rounded-tip blades (10524), pointed-tip blades (10525), or serrated blades (10523). All Slice blades feature a finger-friendly® edge to reduce lacerations. They also offer superior wear resistance: Slice blades last up to 11 times longer than steel blades. In addition, Slice blades are chemically inert, which means they never rust. The ambidextrous 10490 ships with a rounded-tip blade. Cut safe with Slice.
