I bought this knife to use as a marking knife in woodworking (knives give a finer, clearer line than pencils). A marking knife needs to be very sharp, but very handy and safe, because it is in and out of your hand quite a lot. I have tried all sorts of other marking knives, including the handle-less Japanese style. (Once I nearly stabbed myself in the foot when I knocked one off a work table. It would have gone right through my foot, I am sure.) Snap-off knives are superior to all of those. The blade is thin enough to cut deeply, and since the blade is sharpened on the long edge instead of the bevel edge (like Japanese marking knives are), it is easier to bear down while making a cut. The blade retracts, making the knife pocketable. The blade also locks, making it safe to bear down on. Moving the blade in and out is fast and fluid, making it easy to use. Lastly the blade is always sharp, since you can easily snap off a dull section and expose a sharp new point.

For years I used cheap plastic snap-off knives, but I always wanted a nicer, more durable version. Those plastic housings can break fairly easily, and the locking mechanism is flimsy. And now I have found it.

As others have pointed out, the knife is quite slender, though it is slightly heavier than it might appear, being made of stainless steel. It fits nicely in a shirt pocket. The clip is springy and appears sturdy, and pops off to act as a blade snapper. Nifty!

This particular model is auto-locking, meaning that the blade will not move when pressure is applied until you actually move the slider forward or back. It is very easy and fluid to use.

Made in Japan makes a difference in this case. The quality and attention to detail in design make this knife an excellent value compared to knives that are a little less expensive but mediocre. It has a very trim, minimalist design that is easy to store in pockets or pencil cases. The blade does a great job sharpening pencils and smoothly cuts newsprint both with and against the grain. A model with a larger handle and wider blades would be more suitable for tougher jobs.

The stainless steel construction did not bend or even flex when I tested it with more pressure than it would ever get in normal use. The black thumb slide, the only plastic component, is fairly solid and well protected when the knife is fully assembled. The pocket clip includes a thin slot that is used to snap off the end of the blade to refresh the tip (there are 12 disposable segments on each blade). It fits tightly yet slides off easily so the thumb slide can be backed out of the slot in order to replace the blade.

Replacement blades are easy to find in art supply stores (and elsewhere) but this sleek, all stainless steel Ofla model is more elusive. Ordering through the 'Olfa Central' store on Amazon could not have been easier and delivery time was good.

I bought this tool for an art class 2 years ago. My teacher insisted in this specific Olfa knife and I am glad she did. The retractable blade means its much safer than an xacto knife and snap off blades mean you spend less time fussing with the sharp blades or misplacing them. Because the whole knife is relatively flat you can cut right up against something without having to come in at an angle. It's solid, lasts forever, and can be tossed in a bag without hurting anything. I have had mine for 2 years now and it still works as good as new. I would never use anything different.

I thought this knife was going to be a bit beefier and heavier but actually it is very lightweight and sufficiently solid. I think being lightweight is a good thing because I don't need to worry that this knife damages other items in my pencil case. Very smooth operation and pleasure to use. The reason why I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 stars is because of the bulkiness of the thumb slide. The thumb slide tends to get in the way of my grip. The locking mechanism on the thumb slide is very sensitive so if I touch the thumb slide and move it even a little bit while I am cutting, the blade lock disengages and can sometimes cause the blade either get pushed in or pulled out. To avoid this, every time when I hold this knife I have to take a moment to find a right grip that my thumb and palm would not touch the thumb slide. Because of this I often have to hold the knife in a somewhat awkward way. This is a minor nuisance but it's a shame because otherwise this would've been a perfect knife. Nonetheless this is the best knife I have ever used in this type and will be always with me in my pencil case.

Unfortunately, my beloved OLFA SVR-2 was confiscated by an airport officer. I took the blade out and thought it was good enough. But officer insisted on confiscating it anyways on the basis of it still looked like a knife and made a (threatening) clicking noise.

I bought OLFA 1075449 XA-1 to replace SVR-2. Yes, it's plastic. Yes, it's not as pretty. Yes, it's bulkier. Yes it doesn't make you look pro like SVR-2. But it's twice as cheap and bigger handle actually makes it more usable. Also it doesn't have the thumb slide issue I had with SVR-2. So, if you can live with it's larger size and less attractive package, XA-1 is more practical option. Also since it's cheaper, it is less painful if it decides to "walk away" from me or being confiscated.
