Nimble one-finger cutting tool

Product code: DH407
Live out your Wolverine fantasies in a safe, everyday manner with this simple cutting device, worn like a thimble. With a very small ceramic blade at your fingertip, opening packaging and parcels is quick and easy.

Nimble is a one-finger package opener that looks like a rubber thimble. The thimble has a very small zirconia ceramic blade that cuts through plastic and paper easily, but it can’t cause serious injury like scissors or knives.

Nimble lets you quickly, easily and safely open plastic and paper packaging with just a swipe of your finger. Place the item to be cut on a cutting surface, then simply slip the Nimble on your finger and slide across the surface that needs opening or cutting. The Nimble uses raised, tactile internal bumps to help you orientate it on to your finger the right way around.

Important: Avoid direct and indirect contact with skin. Nimble is not a a toy; children must be supervised at all times using this product.

  • Ceramic blade lasts longer than steel.
  • Simple to orientate using raised internal bumps.
  • Brightly coloured to make it easier to find.
  • Compact and portable.

  • Size: 31 × 39 × 23mm (1.22 × 1.54 × 0.9 inches)

Important note: The blade isn’t covered under warranty if the product is used to cut on or against a surface not suitable for purpose. This is any material that isn’t made from paper, plastic or cardboard. Such unsuitable materials include metal, ceramic (for example, dinner plates), stone (for example, granite worktops) and glass.
