We had a chance to review an Open It clamshell packing opener tool and this thing is quite handy. In a nutshell it cuts through those annoying blister packs with ease. It works better than a scissor thanks to a spring loaded handle and sharp short blade and includes some other opening tools in the handle like a mini-screwdriver and a blade. Check out our video review:
We recommend the Open It for anyone who is frustrated with packaging and wants a tool to open all types of packaging quickly and easily. Amazon has it for under $8 and it’s well worth it at that price.
