I feel like the name Nimble is a combination of 'nifty' and 'thimble.' I'm totally making this up, but check out how it looks and tell me that it doesn't make sense.
Right? This is totally a cute yellow nifty thimble.
I was super excited to be a part of trying out the Nimble! I'm not great with sharp things sometimes, especially when my Fibromyalgia and SJIA hit my hands... AKA Sunday after making questionable food and beverage choices at Aunt Brenda's wake.
Upon first glance, I was interested to see that this little fingertip-hugging cutting tool had similar ideas to a box knife. The only difference is that the cutting piece is permanently out and unadjustable.
I was totally fine with that since this cute little fingertip cap doesn't cut me but does cut other things.
I'm a bit of a klutz, so this was a great tool to try out. I'm always cutting myself whether opening packages with sharp objects or with my hands.
I wasn't entirely sure how well this would cut, especially with my hands being less able during this time period. It cut through paper pretty well.
And even cut through tasty snack plastic easily. Honestly, it did even better on that than the paper.
When I used the Nimble on cardstock, it was less easy. Again, my hands have been flaring and, thus, aren't as strong. I did also try this on an Amazon box I needed to break down and had some difficulties there as well.
The nice thing is that the Nimble is small enough you can adjust how you have it on your finger and the pressure you need to apply. My guess is that my hands were getting in the way no matter what.
It does take a certain amount of pressure to cut and I just wasn't at that strength level this weekend. Nonetheless, this was very useful even with grumpy hands on tape, plastic, and regular paper.
I am very excited to start using this in my kitchen, too, as it seems to be very easy to clean.
