Though it wasn't free, Amazon made my day by discounting the item by sixty-five percent. As for a couple of previous reviewers' complaints about the difficulty of closing the blade, simply squeeze the handle slightly, thereby taking some pressure off of the spring, before hitting the close button. (You wouldn't want a hair-trigger mechanism or the blade would be unstable.) If you have a thumb and 4 fingers, it's a simple and quick, one-handed maneuver.
I guess the idea is good. The squeeze for blade, and the internal storage of multiple blades. But this knife just didn't last for me. I used this knife for ONE thing: cutting the tape on boxes to fold them up. After about the first 3 weeks of use, the first problem occurred. When hitting the button to retract the blade, it would remain out a little bit even after pressing it. This wasn't a huge problem because you could just pull the handle out which would bring the blade the rest of the way in. Then, a few weeks later, the blade release just stopped working. So to change the blade I had to remove it through the storage section rather than just use the blade release button to pop it out. Then, about 4 months after all this, it just stopped working alltogether. The blades won't come out any more when the handle is squeezed, and it just seems like the mechanism gave out.
In conclusion, it seemed like a great box cutter while it lasted, but it just didn't last. At all.
I was torn between this knife and the Stanley 10-799. Both looked to be good and had good reviews. I finally chose this one over the Stanley because the Stanley has a fixed blade - the blade doesn't retract and is always out - hard to store safely. After careful thought, I figured that was enough of a danger to eliminate the Stanley from the runnings. This one was cheaper as well, so that's an added bonus.
When I got this knife, I was surprised at how large it is. It's about 17cm long, 4.5cm tall, 2cm thick (6.5" x 2" x 0.9") - this is my estimation from measuring with a ruler, measuring the largest points. These dimensions are a bit different than what's listed on the Amazon product description. The knife feels good and sturdy, well made, and comfortable in my hand. It comes with 6 blades already in the Blade Storage Compartment. It is recommended that you only use Heavy Duty 0.024"/0.60mm thick replacement blades. It comes all ready to go, which is awesome...and it's even easy to get it out of packaging!
Basically, just pop it out of the packaging and squeeze the handle. The black squeeze lever is at the bottom of the handle - squeeze that in and 1 blade automatically pops out. You cannot adjust the amount that the blade comes out, it's either out or in. To retract the blade, you push the black button on the left side by your thumb. This button is a little hard for me to push with my right thumb alone, but it's easy enough...and a guy might not have any problems with that button.Read more ›
