This is the best self retracting knife I've found which my job allows but it starts to get real sensitive on the blade retracting by itself, after a month its no longer usable. I bought 3 different ones and all wore out after about a month.

This knife works well...some of the time. However, at least half of the time the "safety" mechanism causes the blade to retract in the middle of a cut. Whenever pressure on the blade is reduced, the blade retracts. I found that this often happens when opening a carton (part way through the cut to open the tape sealing the two top flaps my hand may slow down a bit, and this relieves the pressure between the blade and the cut). It also sometimes happens when slicing the tape on the short sides, or when cutting the cardboard itself to make the carton smaller for recycling.

When the blade retracts itself, it is necessary to release the thumb slide to reset the mechanism, and then push the thumb slide forward to push out the blade again. So opening a carton becomes several steps: (1) Push thumb slider to extract the blade. (2) Begin slicing the tape on the carton. (3) OOPS! The blade retracts itself. (4) Release the thumb slider to reset the knife. (5) Repeat from Step (1).

I replaced this knife with a much simpler one that is essentially just a plastic housing with a thumb slider, and a sliding blade that is attached to a spring that's connected to the housing. As long as I hold the thumb slider in the "blade is out" position, the blade remains out whether I'm actually slicing a carton or just holding the knife without any pressure on the blade. I can start and stop my cut as often as I want, and the blade remains out. When I release the thumb slider, the blade immediately retracts into the housing. It's just as safe as the Wiss WKAR1 without the inconvenience.

I ordered two of them. My people told me after a week they put them on the shelf. The blades tend to want to slip out.

Auto- Retract good for cutting cardboard but won't cut tape, not enough resistance or substance to the tape

Works well - exactly what I was looking for. The retractable nature of this is perfect for household uses.

Strong knife and very well made. My only complaint is that there is no spare blade storage available. If you need to change the blade, be prepared to stop what you're doing to go get one.
