The trick with opening taped cartons is to cut the tape with a foil knife or pelican knife.
Use the knife blade to cut the tape on the side of the box and then you can press the tape over the opening. It’s much more efficient and safer to open taped cardboard compared to other knives. Always cut only the tape to avoid damaging the box’s content.
The advantage of using a safety knife, foil knife or pelican knife to open taped cardboard is that you protect the contents when you cut because the knife blade is angled upwards instead of inwards the contents of the cardboard. The knife blade thus does not access the contents of the carton.
