Item #: SCP-2207
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2207 is to be contained in a small cardboard box filled with foam, within a standard safe-class storage locker when not used for testing. All testing with SCP-2207 is to be done in containment laboratory 8803. After testing, containment laboratory 8803 is to be decontaminated and checked for damage.
As of test 42, exploration by D-class and/or Foundation personnel beyond SCP-2207-1 instances are preemptively denied.
As of Incident 2207-01, all tests involving SCP-2207 are to be suspended.
Description: SCP-2207 is a ████ brand disposable plastic knife. Testing has indicated that, outside of SCP-2207's anomalous properties, it is identical to other non-anomalous disposable plastic knives.
When the cutting edge of SCP-2207 reaches a minimum speed of 6 m/s1, it severs local space-time, creating a rift that connects to a random alternate universe. These rifts are designated as SCP-2207-1.
Instances of SCP-2207-1 typically last approximately five minutes without outside intervention, and the length is equal to the distance that SCP-2207 traveled at or above 6m/s. Instances remain stationary after creation, but may be widened by pulling along the edges. Instances may be kept artificially open for a maximum of 24 hours by placing any material across the instance's threshold. After 24 hours, the SCP-2207-1 instance closes, severing any material crossing the threshold.
Exploration Log: The following is a partial, abridged exploration log. See Document 2207-24 for a full log of tests, explorations, and recovered material from SCP-2207-1 instances. In all tests, a mechanical arm was used to create SCP-2207-1 instances, and the SCP-2207-1 instance was propped open by a set of metal braces.
Incident 2207-01: On 2011-10-06, the following letter was found addressed to Site-██'s administration:
