Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Stanley Safety Knife Overview

Stanley Safety Knives

As a business owner, you can be held liable for some pretty silly things. While OSHA doesn’t have any hard and fast regulation for utility knives, they do estimate that each serious laceration can cost a business around $38,000 in direct and indirect costs. Well, Stanley, God bless ’em, is working to address our proneness to error. The new Stanley Safety Knife line features a variety of flavors that, hopefully, won’t slow down your job site productivity too badly. They should, also hopefully, keep everyone’s fingertips intact.


The New And Improved Stanley Safety Knife

If you’re looking for affordable, replaceable solutions that will keep you out of dutch with both your legal team and your company’s healthcare provider, the Stanley Safety Knife lineup likely has you covered. This new FatMax lineup features box cutters and pull cutters, as well as a couple of auto-retracting safety knives that we’ve also recently looked at. Let’s dive in and see what Stanley’s been up to!

Stanley Safety Knives

The Stanley FatMax Box Top Safety Knife

This model features a spring-loaded blade that automatically retracts when you release the pressure on the squeeze trigger. It features a box top guide with an integrated tape splitter. Its “easy trigger squeeze” technology reduces strain while cutting as well.

It has three blade depth settings, as well as a lockout setting that helps avoid accidental blade exposure. Additionally, this model features a rounded off blade tip that should help keep the contents of that box safer and reduce accidental job site stabbings.

This Stanley Safety Knife features a slip-resistant bi-material grip, extra blade storage in the handle, and tool-less blade change capability. The housing also features a helpful lanyard hole.

Stanley FatMax Replaceable Head Or Blade Models

These models of the Stanley Safety Knife come in three varieties. The Single-Sided Pull Cutter (FMHT10358) features a replaceable head. The other two models, double-sided pull cutters, are almost identical. One of them features a replaceable blade (FMHT10372), and the other allows you to replace the entire head (FMHT10361). Beyond those distinctions, these three models carry the same feature sets.

Features

  • Completely recessed blade helps reduce risk of injury.
  • Replaceable blade or blade head for waste reduction, easy recycling, and cost efficiency.
  • Double-sided recessed blade increases the useful life of the blade head.
  • Optimized cutting depth cuts through single/double wall corrugate.
  • Slip-resistant bi-material grip for comfort and control.
  • Metal tape splitter pierces and cuts through thick layered tape in one motion.

Stanley FatMax Disposable Pull Cutters

The new FatMax lineup also includes some disposable models. The Single-Sided Round Tip Pull Cutter (STHT10357) works well for punching through shrink wrap and film. Similar in appearance, Stanley designed the standard Single-Sided Pull Cutter (STHT10356) with a hook piercer that can punch through single and double wall corrugate. Finally, the Double-Sided Pull-Cutter (STHT10360) features a double-sided cutting head, just like the name would indicate. All of these variations of the Stanley Safety Knife are available singly or in 10-packs.
