PillCutter.com: Cut Pills in halves or quarters! – Swiss design, Made in the USA

I’m Ken Welch, Founder and President of Swiss Precision Cut, maker of high-end pill cutters since 1999.

Like you, I was faced with the prospect of spending thousands of dollars every year on expensive pills that were vital to my maintaining a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle. Even with insurance, I knew I was spending more than I needed to spend.

After doing some research, I discovered that I could save lots of money if only I could figure out a way to split pills into smaller pieces. I tried all kinds of options, from using a razor blade to a sharp kitchen knife to various standard pill cutters provided by my doctor, the local hospital, the drugstore…nothing seemed to work well.

I’m an engineer by training and an Army Ranger in an earlier life. I knew that there had to be a solution. I contacted a manufacturing design colleague in Zurich, Switzerland and together we designed the “Rolex” of pill cutters – all performance, no frills.

I took this concept back to the U.S. for top-notch, reliable, quality manufacturing. Today, our pill cutters are manufactured in Nevada City, CA.

We are constantly evolving our design and expanding our product line. If you have suggestions or questions, feel free to contact us. We would love to hear about your experiences using our product.
