If you are anything like us, we like to know the history behind our products and this time we are writing about the Stanley Knife.

The brand, Stanley, became known in the 19th century, when the first of Frederick Stanley’s shops were opened in Connecticut, 1834.  Initially, the Stanley Knife was aimed at professional tradesmen but has become popular over the years with DIY fanatics, too.  Frederick Stanley’s aim was not to sell as many knives as possible but to sell knives to customers that would last them, well, forever, and at the same time this gave him feedback and ideas to create new ideas for different and more useful tools for his customers.  Interestingly, Stanley later merged with another company to pioneer power tools, which is a name known in every house hold today, Black and Decker.

The Stanley Knife

Thought to be the most famous of the Stanley tools range, is the Stanley Knife, which is now a standard, every day piece of equipment for any professional or home DIY fan.  It transformed the way virtually any material was cut because it could cut any material.

Razor Sharp Masterpieces


Artists think outside the box on multiple levels every time they complete a piece of work but Mark Langan has given a completely new meaning to the phrase, as hecreates artwork quite literally out of the box.  The 50 year old spends hours on end cutting, folding and gluing pieces of corrugated cardboard together in order to produce some of the worlds most environmentally friendly artwork pieces, recreating well known pieces such as Munch’s Scream, which he made out of somewhere in the realms of 2,000 individually cut pieces of cardboard box.  Each piece of work takes an average time of 120 hours and so far he has created 200 pieces to date.  Altough Langan is aware that his artwork is very low tech and it is in effect classed as “garbage art”, he is extremely particular about the brand of knife he uses in order to produce his masterpieces.  He likes to use non-toxic glue, a cutting mat, a steel rail, a ruler and an Olfa snap razor knife, which along with skill, planning, maths and patience are the keys to what is most definitely a spectacularly impressive portfolio.
