Fuller’s soon-to-be-released “bullet blade” takes its name from it’s double curved head. It looks more like a Volkswagen Beetle to me, but its most important feature is that fact that it accepts special double-headed blades which you can deploy from either end. It also has on-board storage for six additional blades.
Truthfully, I’m having a little trouble understanding why you’d want this. Fuller doesn’t include any other features in their press release — beside’s the rubber grips. Like a regular utility knife, you push the blade out with a slide mechansim. This one just slides out either end. The blades locked into position when you press the red button near the bottom.
Fuller says pricing will start around $10 for, which is roughly standard for heavy utility knives. But we’re guessing Fuller’s taking a Gillette approach here — dump the tool, make your fortune on the required specialty blades. We’ll see.
