First, let me say this: I pack freight for a living. I use a utility knife constantly at work and have for years. I also use them a lot at home. I've used most types of utility knives and owned lots.
This knife was based on a great idea. The blade comes out quickly and easily, and retracts automatically. Unfortunately, it suffers from a fatal, but common flaw, namely cheap construction. It's made primarily of plastic with a bit of aluminum and steel worked in. The plastic is durable enough, but the steel catch for the door where spare blades are stored in the handle is flimsy. In regular use, the catch sometimes opens when you don't want it to. This jams up the knife, so that it won't open or close. It's easy to un-jam it, but it will happen again.
Bottom line: There are better utility knives for less money.

I've become something of a utility knife collector recently. It is amazing how many different shapes and sizes and varieties are available. This is my current favorite. As the review title indicates, it is almost perfect. The knife blade quickly appears when you squeeze the handle which has a nice feel and action and makes a pleasing "clump" sound when the blade is fully deployed. A spring retracts the blade cleanly and quickly when you stop squeezing with another nice "clack" sound.

The overall feel and weight of the knife is very pleasant and solid. I have found it to be very durable.

A thumbwheel on the upper back allows you to adjust how far the blade extends but it doesn't actually offer a very wide range of positions so I don't find this very useful. I pretty much keep the blade at the maximum extension all the time.

Changing blades is not difficult but could be improved. The blade holder is well located in the handle but as a previous reviewer mentions, the clasp and door into the blade chamber is cheaply and oddly built. Releasing the blade door is awkward and clumsy. Getting the blades in and out is pretty easy. The button to release the actual cutting blade doesn't have a very positive action so you press and tug on the blade and then move a bit and press again and so forth until you get it just right. Guiding the new blade in is also a bit awkward. Several "incorrect" angles are possible so you have to fuss with it for awhile to get it in just the right position. Again this could all use improvement.

The unlock button toggles nicely with a positive action on the rear of the knife. When locked it is impossible to squeeze the handle and extend the blade. Very good.

This knife works exactly as described. It operates smoothly, and adjusts cutting depth easily. Durability seems to be great as well. The blade is held very securely in place so it will not rattle around when cutting with it.

The comments the other reviewers have made are all pretty much true. It does take some jiggling to get a new blade into the knife. I once slipped a new blade in the end of the knife under the "carrier" inside of the knife. I had to take it apart to get the blade out. That was not much trouble, only three screws, but I have not had that happen with other knives. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, I would like to have the knife lock in the open position with the blade extended. In its normal state, with the blade retracted, the knife is almost twice its size as compared to when the blade is exposed. Just look at the photo of it. The black plastic guts of the knife double its size. I go up and down ladders a lot on painful knees. My tool belt is loaded to the max and this knife occupies too much space. That aspect ticks me off. I would have to say that this knife allows me to apply a lot of force to the blade, and the handle does not hurt my hand. When I apply a lot of force with other knives, the blade often comes out of them. That has not happened with this one. I realize that this tool is not a chisel or a pry bar, but when I have to lean into the cut(s) I would choose this knife. Maybe I'll just take some painters tape and tape the black plastic blade carrier into the body of the knife (leaving the blade exposed) when the space in my tool belt is at a premium.

I get these knifes free at work as part of my job. I've had at least 3 of these knifes fail so far due to cheap construction. They work very well until you have to change the blade. The first 3 or 4 blade changes are OK and then the lack of quality shows up. The little black button you have to press to release the blade from the knife fails. When working right you just push the button in, remove the old blade, insert the new blade and release the button. The button pops out and holds the blade in place. After a few pushes of this little button the spring behind it fails and it just flops in and out. This means the blade won't lock in place and you can throw the knife in the trash. It's impossible to take apart and repair.

I am the maintenance supervisor for a industrial manufacturing company. We wanted to be proactive with safety and after testing a few knives, our operators decided on this model. It is not as safe as the "auto blade retract" which work off of pressure. This knife is better than having an open blade, exposed all the time, which is what we had before. My operators have used it for a week (80hrs of use) and we have had no issues.
