terrible

Comments about Clamshell Package Opener:

This is terrible. The slide out blade is no different than a regular box cutter and the blade you are supposed to slide along the package doesn't work on a vast majority of packages. The spring on the retractable blade broke almost immediately so it just slides in and out constantly during use. I just went back to a scissors.

Cons

  • Poor Design
Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend
