Professional chef-ing can be an intimidating activity, and it’s one that many of us avoid due to the inherent risk of injury. You know that all of those scary knives are just waiting for the chance to “accidentally” slice you when you’re not looking, so you avoid using one altogether. You may be inexperienced, out of practice, extra clumsy, or just especially accident prone, and as a result, those razor sharp blades can pose a real risk to your health. Before you give up hope, or start prepping all of your food with an electric processor, you may want to try a little protection so you no longer have to fear the blade. With a knife guard in place, the dangerous edge is unable to touch your skin, so you never have to worry about unexpected abrasions or severed digits.
What Is It
Our Safe Slice Knife Guard is a simple and clever device that slips over your fingers to create a protective barrier between your delicate skin and the knife you’re using. The back portion is made from a silicone-like material so it flexes with your hand, and adapts to any user. The finger and thumb hole will stretch to conform to any hand, and the grip can adjust to any size fruit or vegetable. Added bumps will increase gripping power and ensure that the food you are cutting does not roll or slip loose. Two separate plates made from a durable plastic material will act like shields to guard you from the onslaught and make slicing any type of food safe and easy. Wearing this guard when slicing food will give any novice the confidence of a pro because accidents will be virtually impossible.
How To Use It
Slip it on anytime you prepare food for piece of mind. The extra layer of safety it provides will help you increase speed, improve accuracy, and attempt techniques that are more risky. Your food prep will take less time, the results will be better, and you’ll never have to worry about running to the emergency room, or dashing to get a box of band-aids. You may have to explain to others what the heck is on your hand, but after you explain it, they’ll be asking where you got it.
- Always wash fruits and vegetables prior to slicing.
- Once clean, place atop a cutting board or another safe surface.

- Dishwasher safe when finished.
