The Knife Glider from Brilliant Inventors LLC, is an easy-to-use plastic shield that protects your hand and makes slicing and chopping fast, easy, and safe. According to the company, the transparent plastic gadget will fit any size knife and is BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
“It all started when my wife Jennifer, who is an experienced cook, had to go to the hospital for stitches after a kitchen accident,” says inventor-owner Samuel Shipp. “After that experience, Jennifer and I developed a product that’s safe and easy to use with either hand, snaps together to keep attachments from getting lost, and folds to fit easily in the knife drawer.”
The Knife Glider was originally funded via a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo and is now available at Amazon and Ebay, as well as the company’s website and Facebook page. In addition, Brilliant Inventors said that the Knife Glider will also soon be sold on The Grommet.
Made in the U.S.A., the Knife Glider kit comes with attachments and has an SRP of $19.99.
