People send me shit to review all the time. At first thought, this might seem like a nice perk to the job… and it is, but honestly 90% of the stuff I’m sent to review has no interest or value to me. Typically, this stuff ends up in a landfill somewhere and not on the site.
So, when Slice sent me a couple of their new ceramic box cutters they sat unopened in my office for a few weeks… I mean, what real innovation can their be in a utility knife? I just didn’t see a re-invented wheel here and didn’t rush to use them. But, I’ve been working on my new shop like a mad man as of late and have had lots of packaging to open and stuff that just needed to be cut. The Slice just happened to be around, so I opened it up and started using it with no legitimate thoughts towards usability, a review, or anything like that. I mean, I just had shit that needed cut, so I was cutting it!
