    Overview   Process   Hi Res  

    Task: to make a wide-application utility cutting tool.

    Ergonomics are the basis of the Maketikus utility knife, making it superbly comfortable to use in any position. Its complex, multi-faceted body allows you to work with your hand “floating” or supported.

    Your hand moves naturally and freely in any position.

    The plastic body is resistant to acetone and other organic solvents.

    Metal guides reinforce the blade
    improving its overall stability and accuracy

    A special stopper
    automatically locks
    exposed blade

    The retractable mechanism
    allows you to control
    blade length with
    sharp precision

    The blade is made of laser-treated
    stainless steel
    so no sharpening needed

    Ripe olive color looks pleasant
    while keeping the knife
    from getting lost
    among other tools

    The knife weights 100 g (0.22 lb.)
    and feels comfortably heavy
