While safety is a feature of every product we make, The Basic model offers another level of safety and performance thanks to its “break away” design. Designed with a “rib” at the bottom of the band that can be cut, the user has the freedom to “pull out” of the ring in the unlikely event the blade would get stuck or caught in something. The Basic is constructed of a molded polycarbonate material and comes with The Original style blade. And because The Basic offers a less expensive, plastic alternative to our popular metal safety knives, it is a good choice for applications where the knife will be discarded at the end of the project. Additionally, the Ring’s cut-able band helps eliminate the guesswork involved in deciding what size ring knives to order for your crew. The small knife (red) fits finger sizes 7-10, the medium (green) fits sizes 11-14, and the large (blue) fits sizes 15 and up. The low number in each size range indicates the size The Basic fits when the rib is intact; the higher numbers indicate what the band is adjustable to with the rib cut. The Basic can be special ordered in any color specification.

“Wear it like a ring, it’s always Handy®”.

Custom Imprint

At HTK Company, we can custom imprint on our safety knives--the Basic style or any of our vinyl-coated bands. (Custom imprinting looks better on the vinyl-coated bands.)

Artwork must be submitted in an eps, ai, cdr or pdf format. We ask customers limit the length of the artwork submitted —such as website address, company logo and phone number-- to 10 characters/spaces. Messages can also be stacked on top of one another. Customers will be emailed a proof of how the imprint will look on the band for their approval and/or changes before production begins.

There is a one-time plate (artwork) charge of $75 to the customer for a metal plate. (Metal plates can last for 10,000+ images). Charge for printing is 20 cents per color and/or side.

In stock ink colors are white and black, but there are many other options that can be also be utilized.

Custom imprints typically take approximately three weeks from the time of inquiry until the order ships. Repeat orders can typically be shipped within a week.

To learn more about custom imprints, colors and options, contact an HTK customer service representative at (866) 294-3424 or using the contact links on the bottom of the page.

Vinyl Wrap

Adding our patented, durable, vinyl wrap coating to the safety ring knife of your choice provides additional comfort and helps reduce slippage, which is especially important for the worker who uses the knife all day. A vinyl wrap coating also gives you the opportunity to custom imprint ring knives with your company name, logo, phone number, web address or any message. Consider assigning a specific color to a specific ring size, making it easier for employees to identify their preferred size, keep track of their ring knife, and simplify the reordering process.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to customizing your vinyl wrap Handy Safety Knife. Choose yellow, red, blue, black, evergreen, hunter green, orange, white or gray. Ranging in size from 8 – 16, vinyl wrap coated ring knives can be purchased in all blade styles: Original, Safety, Ultra Gold and Razor’s Edge.Give us a call with any questions or special requests.
