Prior to the holidays we began the first of what we hope is many giveaways for you, our loyal readers. This time the prize was Martor’s Secupro 625 squeeze-grip knife, an ergonomic safety tool that reduces the risk for accidental lacerations by reflexively retracting after each cut.
This time the lucky winner is Ben D. from Florence, S.C.! Congratulations, Ben! We're shipping out your brand new blade ASAP.
Overall, we received nearly 1,100 entries and several great comments. Here’s a sampling:
A quality manager wrote, “Looks like a great knife. The video indicates that once the knife has completed the cut, the blade automatically re-tracts, without releasing the lever. Is that the case? If so, that is a great safety feature.”
Yes, that is exactly how it works, and a quick squeeze extends the blade again for the next cut.
A control engineer wrote: “With replaceable/disposable blades to use daily to open boxes with those nasty hidden staples that damage a good knife blade; this appears to be a daily carry.”
We also noticed that after a few tries, you can perform a blade change in a matter of seconds. And with no tools. Should come in handy if you are using it daily.
And one company president was so excited , the comment was shouted from the All-Caps mountaintop: "SMART DESIGN EQUALLY SAFE, AND BEFOREHAND THE VIDEO MUST BE MANDATORY TO WATCH. EMPHASIZE THE SAFETY”
Here’s that video again in case you missed it:
