Description

Cutting the sixpack foils of your favorite beverage has never been so easy with this nifty foil cutting tool! The tip next to the blade is so sharp that you can even begin cutting from the middle of a foil.
This foil cutter should even be usable in office or industrial environments.

Because I was tired of ripping plastic foils with my hands or fiddling
with scissors and there were no foil cutters designed yet for being 3D
printed, I designed this little handy tool.
It can be printed in two
halves and then sandwiched with the blade using the screws. I also
supplied another version with a keyring hole.



Size: 130mm25mm8mm, weight including screws and blade: ~18g

Hint: The foil cutter in the picture is from a previous version that was a little smaller and thus only had 2 screws.
Contact me if you want the raw Blender files :)
