Ditto what some others have said. If you cut tape all day, you could get away with a good knife, clean the sticky residue off it daily, and sharpen it weekly. Unless you sharpen it daily, I wouldn't use a knife to cut cardboard all day -- you're bound to get cut from having to strong-arm a dulled blade.
You're better off with something that takes replaceable utility/razor blades. You can put a fresh blade in it or flip the blade to the unused side daily. You can buy blades cheap in 50 or 100-packs. No worrying about the tape residue, either. As a bonus, razor/utility blades cut through corrugated paper much better than most knives.
Look for "handy cutter" box cutters (cheap, thin, tap open/closed) or any kind of utility knife that takes regular utility blades. A bunch of brands have folding models that you use like a pocket knife, if that's your thing.
