10 Travel-Friendly Box Opener Tools

Whether it's part of your job or you end up unboxing new gear you get in the mail more than you'd like to admit, opening up cardboard boxes ranks high on our list of daily tasks. Naturally you'd want to reach for your trusty EDC knife, but sometimes it isn't the best tool for the job. Cardboard can dull an edge all too quickly, not to mention the packing tape residue gunking up the blade, rendering your knife less useful for making precise, sharp cuts. And sometimes, you might end up in a place where carrying a blade isn't even allowed. It's times like these when a non-bladed opener tool can come in handy. In this guide, we're highlighting some tools that can tackle tacky tape and much more to complement your EDC.
