The 'Perfect Cut' by Polarlab Cuts Complex Shapes

Perfect Cut is the all-in-one utility knife for complex shapes, a multipurpose tool that can perform all kinds of impeccable cuts on sheet materials like cardboard, foam board, leather and cloth.

The Perfect Cut by Polarlab is a set of multipurpose desktop cutting tools. Unlike other cutting tools, Perfect Cut puts a series of six unique units in one's hands. Each is minutely adjustable and capable of producing cuts anywhere on the spectrum from "I could do this blindfolded" to "I bought an extra 30 sheets just in case."

Shih-Yen Lo, the designer, started the project in 2014 as a degree project from the Royal College of Art in London. In 2017, the first version of the Perfect Cut was crowdfunded in Taiwan, while the campaign was pledged over 10,000 copies. The team upgraded the Perfect Cut with an aluminum ruler and a customized blade for launching on Kickstarter.
