Hand Tools for Cutting and Crafting

The best hand cutting tools have the ability to tackle everything from light paper to thick fabric, making those heavy-duty cutting jobs much easier. Find the best selection for your office, factory, or retail store below:

Shears and Scissors

Ideal for fabric or carpet, shears are highly versatile tools that cut through materials both quickly and accurately. This is thanks to their unique design, with one rounded bow handle for the thumb and another elliptical bow to hold two or more fingers.

Our bestsellers are the Westcott Value Line Stainless Steel Shears, which are resistant to rust and corrosion. With comfortable plastic handles, these shears are lightweight and durable, making them perfect for cutting through paper, ribbons, and photos.

Alternatively, scissors are a great option for general office use, especially when it comes to cutting paper and important documents. If you're looking for sharp blades, we'd recommend the Universal General Purpose Stainless Steel Scissors. The offset, contoured plastic handles also offer improved ergonomics and a more comfortable, secure grip when cutting.


Discover a razor-sharp range of retractable knife blades and multi-purpose hand tools that are made to cut everything from cardboard boxes to thick joints of meat!

Utility knives are ideal for a variety of industries, from the restaurant trade to factories and warehouses. They feature a long, narrow blade that is lightweight and easy to carry, making it a great tool for construction projects where plastic or wood materials need to be trimmed.

For instance, featuring a die-cast handle, the Stanley Classic 99 Utility Knife stores three retractable, heavy-duty blades for three unique cutting positions.

Whether cutting cardboard in warehouses or opening boxes to restock retail shelves, try the Slice Box Cutters. Their ceramic safety blades are durable, yet finger-friendly, and the safer ergo handle wraps around your hand to provide protection while achieving the perfect cutting angle.

While a straight handled knife like the Stanley w/Retractable 13 Point Snap-Off Blade delivers fresh, sharp cutting points for light trimming duties, putty knives are better for heavy construction or maintenance jobs.

With a stiff blade and black plastic handle, the Great Neck Putty Knife makes an essential addition to any drywaller's toolbox. This versatile tool can also be used to hide nail holes, scrape surfaces, spread materials like plaster, remove baseboards, clean grills, and even flip burgers!
