For company safety directors seeking new ideas in worker safety, injury prevention and mitigating workplace risk, the HTK Company has your solution: the Handy Safety Knife™. The Ohio company’s patented knife is worn like a ring and features a unique curved blade design that makes it nearly impossible for the user to cut himself or herself – or anyone else.

According to statistics, about 30 percent of workplace injuries today involve cuts or lacerations, and about 70 percent of those injuries are to the hands or fingers. Predictably, the most common causes of cuts and lacerations are knives, box cutters and other hand tools with blades. Now there is an alternative to straight blades as well as retractable “safety” blades that still must be exposed to work.

The safety knife for a range of work environments

Because the demands of every work place are different, the HTK Company offers four styles of the Handy Safety Knife™, plus vinyl wrap options. Whether you choose the Ball Point®, The Original, The Basic or Razors Edge®, each style of Handy Safety Knife provides a safer, efficient cutting tool for employees working in environments such as warehousing, manufacturing process, food services, hospitality, horticulture, and agriculture.
