About Cardinal Safety
Inventor and founder Jeff Kempker has devoted his career to developing high performance safety cutters.
After the 9/11 attacks he started developing a safer alternative to traditional box cutters with open blades. The events of 9/11 involved box cutters being used as weapons to hijack the planes. This is why Cardinal Safety developed their line of safety box cutters.
Drawing inspiration from cardinals who visited his backyard, he admired the way nature designed the curve of their beaks, then created a cutter to mimic this unique feature.
The Cardinal Cutter has two blades with a hook of plastic over the recessed edges, making it practically impossible to cut oneself. It can be used to rip down a tape line, cut through thick cardboard, strings, twine, zip ties, and more. Products like the Cardinal Duo and Cardinal Pro evolved from this original design to accommodate the different preferences and styles of safety cutter users.
All Cardinal Cutter products are made right here in the USA from materials sourced for quality and recyclability.
