For nearly a century, the name X-ACTO® has been synonymous with precision cutting. Since the early years when X-ACTO surgical blades were saving the lives of American soldiers, through today when you can find X-ACTO cutting tools and office supplies in art studios, homes, offices and classrooms across the country, X-ACTO has been the first choice when precision and quality matter.
X-ACTO honed its very first blades and knives from the highest quality steel, engineering them for maximum sharpness and durability. While that hasn’t changed, the breadth and variety of products we offer has expanded with our customers’ needs. Generations of crafters, teacher, hobbyists and artists, office professionals, students and moms have all turned to X-ACTO for the high quality precision tools they need to pursue their livelihoods, indulge their passions and bring projects, creations and memories to life.
Today the X-ACTO line features our legendary cutting tools as well as a full selection of office supplies, including a complete line of pencil sharpeners originally marketed under the Boston brand.
Our customers’ demand for quality, precision, style and comfort has made X-ACTO the number one brand of both hobby knives and pencil sharpeners in the United States.
Whether it’s our wildly popular #1 Precision Knife with the #11 blade, or one of our top-selling pencil sharpeners, staplers, punches or paper cutters, X-ACTO has always and will always deliver the tools that empower the creative community and professionals to achieve their very best.
