Nimble cutting tool
Is it a knife, is it a thimble? No it’s a Nimble!
- Opening tricky packets and parcels
- Wrapping presents
- Arts and crafts
Nimble is a small and versatile tool that can be worn on the fingertip like a thimble and uses a small but safe blade to cut thin paper and thin plastic items. It is a great alternative to scissors and knives.
Watch the Nimble in action:
You don’t have to worry about hurting yourself as, although Nimble’s blade is sharp, it is too small to penetrate skin and cause injury. This is because skin is too tough and flexible so bends out of the way. This safety means it is even good for children (Children should still be supervised whilst using Nimble.). While it can’t hurt us, it can scratch household surfaces, so you can also buy a cutting mat and carry case, but this is up to you. Nimble’s special sleeve profile expands and contracts to fit all finger sizes so you don’t have to worry which size to get.
They also offer a 30 day money back guarantee in case you don’t like it, but we think you will.
Dimensions: 10 x 7.3 x 2.5 cm (unpackaged: 2.3 x 3.8 x 3 cm)
Materials: Silicone Rubber, ABS, and Zirconia Ceramic.
What our testers say
We can’t work out how these cut paper and plastic but not people! It’s like magic!
Very clever little product that everyone who has tried has enjoyed using.
Can get a bit lost in your cutlery draw being so small, but being bright yellow helps.
We loved it for vacuum packed food packaging and arts and crafts.
We tried one on a cable tie and probably shouldn’t have. It’s definitely not meant for that and is no where near as sharp anymore 🙁
The Nimble is designed by Simon Lyons, the founder of the company Version 22. Based out of a creative space in Loughborough, Simon established Version 22 in 2012 with the aim of creating innovative, inclusive products which solve real everyday problems in new and exciting ways that that make people smile.
Three years, two products, a hugely successful crowd-funding campaign and countless awards later, we predict Simon will be a household name before long. His commitment to thoroughly testing and prototyping to make a product just right is spot on and so refreshing.
His Nimble is testament to this. We wish him all the best and for more Simons! Excitingly he is also looking for new ideas for his next product at the moment so we can’t wait to see what he comes up with. Read more about Version 22 on his website and on our blog about packaging.
