Fort Worth Entrepreneur Launches Blade-Free Alternative for Opening Packages, Boxes and Sealed Containers

With a forged-metal design, the Penguin glides quickly and easily through all manner of protective coverings, boxes, and tamper-resistant seals without frustration or risk of injury from a sharp tool or blade. Sober since 2016, Johnson envisioned the idea while receiving treatment in a residential treatment center.

“Every day I watched nurses struggle to remove medications from numerous, individually sealed blister packages," said Carter Johnson, President & CEO of XIT XTREME, the operating company launching the Penguin. “With no sharp objects such as scissors available, there was no fast, efficient way to open the seals. As a result, dispensing medications was slow and often resulted in frustration by both the nurses and the patients.”

Johnson’s entrepreneurial legacy drove her vision of a simple and safe way to open seals and the Penguin was born. With an innovative, patent-pending design, the Penguin is the first product of it's kind to address this common problem. And, the Penguin is much more sanitary than using your fingers, hands, or teeth, allowing a safe, convenient, and playful way to open almost anything.

“Retail product packaging has never been user friendly, but the uses for the Penguin are endless,” said Johnson. “Save yourself the frustration that goes along with being unable to open the often-impenetrable packaging that surrounds the very items that you need – get a Penguin, make life easy!”


Manufactured in the United States, the Penguin comes in three sizes and retails for $7.99 to $9.99 each. Order online at
