In contrast to "normal" fixed-blade cutters, the blades of most MARTOR Safety Cutters are spring-loaded to INSTANTLY retract into the handle when blade edge contact is lost. This automatic respectively fully-automatic response is an efficient safeguard against serious cutting accidents. If Accident Prevention is meant to be more than just a convenient slogan - any and all so-called safety cutters should meet the following minimum requirements:
Automatic blade edge retraction in case of an uncontrolled cut.
Safe blade change without any undue cutting risks.
Cutter handles/bodies designed to remain safe where laid down.
Securely mounted blade that will not shift even under large forces.
