OLFA Celebrates National Safety Month


June is here, and you know what that means – it’s National Safety Month! While this occasion doesn’t (necessarily) come with fireworks or parties, it’s still a cause worth celebrating. What better way to do so than by showcasing OLFA’s family of safety products?

OLFA takes pride in offering products engineered to reduce injuries and keep employees safe while still offering maximum functionality. The following safety solutions don’t come with helmets and knee pads, but they do come with high-quality materials and long-lasting performance that OLFA customers can always expect.


Safety Level 1: Semi-Automatic Knives


The Self-Retracting Safety Knife (SK-4)

The Self-Retracting Safety Knife (SK-4). The SK-4 offers a slip-resistant, high-impact ABS handle for comfortable use. It has the option to use three different blades for high functionality in a variety of cases. This semi-automatic knife is loaded with a spring-activated, self-retracting blade. Users need only take their thumb off the blade slide to allow for automatic retraction when no longer in contact with the cutting surface.


The Stainless Steel Self-Retracting Safety Knife (SK-14)

The NSF certified SK-14 is engineered to be the ideal safety knife for food production areas. The rounded-tip blade cuts through a variety of materials while reducing the chances of broken tip contamination. It is also semi-automatic self-retracting for user and product safety. The stainless steel handle and blade make this knife sanitary and easy to clean. The SK-14 is the only knife on the market to be both NSF certified and fully metal detectable.


Safety Level 2: Fully-Automatic Knives


The Fully-Automatic Self-Retracting Safety Knife (SK-8)

The SK-8 is equipped with a spring-activated blade that automatically retracts if it loses contact with the cutting surface. Even if the blade slide is extended, this safety feature cannot be overridden. This ensures the blade won’t be unnecessarily exposed, which could lead to injury. This knife also comes with an anti-slip handle and a large blade slide for easy and safe handling. The SK-8 is extremely heavy-duty, with metal armor protecting the front of the handle for extra durability.


Safety Level 3: Concealed Blades


The Concealed Blade Safety Knife (SK-10)

The SK-10’s concealed blade allows for continual cutting without having to manually extend the blade. This safety feature reduces the risk of injury to the user. The blade easily cuts through a variety of materials, such as nylon, plastic, leather, and more. Additionally, the handle features anti-slip grooves and fits both left- and right-handed users for a variety of usages.



The Disposable Concealed Blade Safety Knife (SK-15)

The SK-15 is a new durable, disposable, and NSF certified safety knife that’s perfect for foodservice use. The stainless steel blade is positioned in a protected blade channel for ultimate user safety and requires 25 percent less pulling force per cut. This improves blade longevity and reduces user fatigue. Workers never have to worry about handling a blade with the SK-15 – when the blade gets dull, simply throw it away and use a new knife.
