Krupanidhi Silicone Thumb Knife Review – Thumbs Down From Mishry
Thumbs down for this silicone thumb knife! We do not recommend this tool at all.
A lemon spray, a cutter with a built in chopping board or a peeler with a collection bin! Gimmicks just don’t end when it comes to kitchen tools.
We ordered a silicone thumb knife from Amazon to check if this tool has the ability to surprise us with design and usability. We tried and tested this tool to check if it really works or not.
Our Krupanidhi silicone thumb knife review covers it all.

The parameters we tested the Krupanidhi silicone thumb knife on are –
Design and usability of the tool goes hand in hand. If it’s designed to work well, automatically the usability will increase. The material of the knife and quality of the silicone sleeve were checked.

Krupanidhi Silicone Thumb Knife – Detailed Review
What is this meant for? As per its Amazon page, it can be used for picking vegetables (so that nothing gets deposited in your fingernails). It can also be used to peel veggies like ginger and garlic, and cutting hard vegetables like beans.
How did we test it? We used it for scraping ginger, chopping chillies, and green beans. We also picked a few basil leaves from the kitchen garden using these.
Our experience – This product came to us in a small rectangular carton. The thumb knife is placed in a plastic pouch along with the 2 thumb gloves in a resealable pouch. No information on usage or warranty provided.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work well and is inconvenient to use. You are supposed to wear the cutter side on the thumb and the silicone sleeve on the index finger. Then use your index finger as the base to do all the cutting/scraping.
There are a few things that do not work for this tool –
- The fitting is loose and would not fit people with leaner fingers.
- This isn’t versatile as not all veggies can be chopped or scraped. Only tiny vegetables like green chillies or beans can be cut, but it needs a tremendous amount of precision.
- Takes a lot of time.
What worked? Technically, nothing. But the blade sharpness is fairly good.
Coming to the value for money factor. Is it worth buying? No. Not at all. For 189/- bucks you could buy two decent knives and get the job done faster with neater cuts.
- The cutter is sharp.
- This is time taking.
- Not a versatile tool that you can use for various things in the kitchen.
- Not value for money.
- Incovnincinet chopping method.
We do not recommend buying this and are not putting the ‘Buy Now’ button.

Although it is meant to do that, it really doesn’t do a good job of chopping vegetables properly.

It is meant to protect the index finger. There are 2 given in the pack – one is an extra piece to replace the first one in case of damage.
