The safety mechanism makes the tool better than the average utility knife for some purposes, but not for others. The knife is great for cutting rope, tape, etc., but I did not find it to be a comfortable tool for cutting long, straight sections of material. The problem? The safety mechanism causes you to give up some control of the knife. While you are pressing the knife downward to keep the blade on the material, you are using your thumb to apply pressure in the opposite direction to prevent the blade from retracting. Practice will make you better at the task, but I found it nonetheless difficult to keep steady pressure on the knife for the entire length of the material that I was trying to score. In any event, the knife does have its utility (sic). And if it isn't exactly what you wanted, you have only wasted $8.00.

My favorite utility knife ever... I don't use a utility knife everyday, so I love the safety features of this one... it's automatically retracted blade (spring loaded) is a must... and the blade is so simple to change, no tools required, it can be set up for righties or lefties, the extra blades also come in a great re-closable plastic case. I have 4 of these at my house (in the kitchen, the garage, the office, and one in my car) and I have one at work too.

This knife might be good for someone else, but I bought this as an all-purpose safety knife for our fabrication shop and it just couldn't handle cutting material beyond cardboard. Would work for shipping and receiving, but don't count on this to be your "go-to"

I received my first as a gift and ended up buying one for every room of the house, plus the car and my desk at work. If you're like me and you're always cutting yourself because you're careless with blades, this is perfect for you.

This is the only Utility knife that I have found that is self-retracting. I can't count the number of times that I have accidentally cut something with other knifes.

Gave this 5 stars! Works great for cutting up cardboard and cardboard tape. I have been using such knives for nearly a decade.
