We created our all-in-one "everything" opener to be the easiest, safest most comforting way to open all your store bought and online purchases. The idea of creating a better package opener came during the holiday season of 2018, when our founder cut myself with a pair of scissors and damaged a shirt opening a gift he'd received. "There's got to be a better way!", words he'd heard himself say so many times before took on new meaning that day as he imagined a less crude tool, one with style, safety and ease of use. Three years later, a smart team, five major iterations and over seventy five integral improvements propelled FLYK to its current form. And why did we choose FLYK as the name, quite simply, because all it takes is a flick of the wrist to open just about everything.
FLYK provides peace of mind anytime you open a new purchase. And while it is a lot more comforting to use (think knives, scissors and utility blades) FLYK isn't scared of doing what you expect. A single FLYK experienced rigorous testing at one of the world's largest global shipping companies opening thousands of different types of packaging and myriad boxes. It also incised hundreds of cords, straps and other binding materials. So whether you're using it at home, the office or school, count on FLYK's blades to last a life time, and its elegant, smart design to be with you for many happy openings to come.
FAMILIES: With every FLYK you purchase, you help support families working from home here in the U.S. and soon, abroad. Covid changed the way we look at the work / life balance and we're helping those preferring an "at home with family" way earning an income.
PLANET HEALTH: With natural recourses such as trees being used to make packaging we have teamed up with One Tree Planted to help replenish these life giving gifts. You can become part of the team too, by reaching out to ONETREEPLANTED With little investment on your part they will take care of planting as many as you'd like, and you get to make the planet just a little bit healthier.
