The ‘Nimble’ ~ Easy On The Hands Opening & Cutting Tool

“This is a sponsored post. I was provided the product in exchange for an honest review, I have been compensated for my time through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. All opinions remain my own and I was in no way influenced by Version22 Designs or Chronic Illness Bloggers.”


What an excellent idea!  One of the most difficult tasks I find when I am having a FMS flare, is using scissors to cut and open packages.  Fitting my painful fingers into the holes and contorting them to fit the form of what I’m trying to cut or open, causes my already sore fingers to hurt more.   I usually end up using my teeth or asking someone else around to help.  Not ideal.

When I received the ‘Nimble’ in the mail, I was curious to see if something that small would live up to the maker’s promises.  It seemed too easy.  It was small , it was easy, and to my surprise it really did get the job done.  The first thing I opened was the packet of candy they sent me to test it out on.  I put the ‘Nimble’ on my index finger and drew the tool across the length of the package.  I used no more force than if I were tracing a line with a pencil.  The package slit right open.  Cool!

This multi-award winning tool is easy enough for everyone to use.  It is also safe.  Although the ultra hard zirconia ceramic blade holds a sharper edge than steel, if it should run across your skin you won’t be cut (due to the motion of  the Nimble and the way skin bends to the shape of the tool). Visit their site and check out the cool little demonstration video!

So how do you get your hands on one of these nifty little cutters?  Well, the folks at Nimble are running a Kickstarter Campaign.  If your are not familiar with Kickstarter, here is how it works:

  • You pledge the amount the Nimble is being offered at in the Kickstarter Campaign (which will be below what Nimble will sell at retail for).
  • You are only charged if the campaign meets its goal.
  • Once the campaign closes, they will take the time needed to produce your Nimble, and off it goes to you!

Why are they doing this?  Well, the Nimble like the one I received are from an original, smaller production.  They are running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to produce a new and improved Nimble on a larger scale.  There will also be a few ‘early bird’ deals available at launch.  These Nimbles will have an extra discount on top of the already discounted Kickstarter price!

Overall, I liked this little gadget.  I can think of a few jobs where this will come in handy, and do a better job than my old pair of scissors.  For instance, when I need to cut parchment paper to line my cake pans, I usually have to trace the pan, then cut the circle awkwardly with scissors.  This way, I can simply trace the Nimble around the edge of the pan, giving me a perfectly cut liner!  I can see this making celebrations like the holidays much easier on me.  I’m already dreaming of December, and using my Nimble instead of scissors to cut a perfect line in the gift wrapping paper!   Small tool that makes everyday tasks simple?…I like it!

    What a nifty little gadget! My husband has to open packages for me because holding a box cutter or knife with force to open a package hurts my hands. It’s hard to use a manual can opener, too. My hands are getting worse.

    Thank you for sharing at Chronic Friday Linkup! I pinned this to the linkup board.

      I know exactly what you mean about those can openers! I used to have a handheld one that you set onto the lid and it went around by itself opening the can automatically. I wish I could find one again! Have a great weekend! 🙂
