X-ACTO knives are designed for maximum performance and precision. Always on the cutting edge, for decades X-ACTO has been the standard by which other cutting blades are measured.

Zirconium nitride coated blade provides an edge that is proven to be 5 times stronger and stays sharp 7-10 times longer than standard blades. Does an incredible job with delicate, precision cutting or trimming or stripping on paper, plastic, balsa, thin metal, cloth, acetate and other materials. A lightweight aluminum handle with easy-change blade. Includes #1 knife and cap.

The classic X-acto knife has been used for years and is pretty much the standard for light craft and modeling applications. It has been so successful that there are plenty of cheap reproductions of varying quality. I used one such recently and was disappointed with it because the part that held the blade was made of plastic and quickly broke.

This time I have the latest X-acto knife which stands out from the rest with its gold grip. It's only when you unpack it that you notice something different. The gold cutting edge of the blade which is made of a new alloy that is probably similar to the quality blades I see on gardening pruners and other tools these days. It's certainly sharp and cuts very well though I haven't used it enough to vouch for the claimed longevity.

One nice thing is the clear plastic protective cap. It really does grip the knife firmly but can be easily removed by squeezing in the right place. I can safely put it amongst my pens and pencils blade up without any risk of stabbing myself when reaching into the pot. And it has two little nubs that prevent it rolling on my desk when laid down flat.

All told, this is one of the best X-acto knives I have used in quite some time.

As a designer who deals with a lot of print based production, I go through a TON of xacto knives. #11 blades are your best friend as a designer.

On the regular #11 blades, I'd use them for a while before they'd go dull, and they lasted for a few days each. Usually it would all go downhill after the very tip of the blade would break off. $3-4 per pack of blades really add up over time if you calculate the costs.

I read online xacto themselves were giving out free Z series blades for anyone to try, and I got my hands on one a few days ago. I've been using it now, cutting 80lb cover stock, and 30lb text weight paper, and so far the tip hasnt broken off yet, while the old #11 blades would have by now with the same amount of usage.

The nice gold accents from the blade and knife themselves are nice. I had a few people ask me "Where did you get that cool gold xacto knife?"

My only complaint is the fact that the handle is still the same old xacto handle that's been in use for YEARS. The only thing they changed was adding the gold accent to the handle. I also have a more modern handle which is coated with rubber and more ergonomic, much more comfortable and easy to use when cutting. After using my new Z series knife and handle for a few days, I've finally decided that I'd just toss the blade itself onto my ergonomic xacto handle for a better grip and feel.

In the end, it's a xacto knife, we've had them for years. They've improved upon the design and quality of metal to make it better, so from now on I'll be using the Z series blades when I cut things by hand and design.

I highly recommend these blades to anyone who's a designer, student, or just into crafts and uses an xacto knife frequently.

The blade is sharp, but the cap is HORRIBLE. If the blade is not centered (which happes a lot) when you insert the cap in the tip of the blade, the fine point of the blade will scratch the whole inside of the cap, damaging the fine perfect edge of the blade. Pay attention to this or prepare yourself for buying new blades.

(so far I got no responses from the manufacturer)

The quality and consistency of these blades is outstanding. I use these blades to cut thick paper and love how sharp and durable they are. As a bonus, I am happy to buy a blade that is made in the USA.

I've used lots of X-Acto knives and this one is one of the best. I use it for woodworking and painting projects. One note of caution: When cutting something hard (like drywall) the blade seems to get loose and can fall out. Yeah, I know, it's not a drywall knife. In any event, a good knife at a good price.

Cuts cleanly and smoothly with initial use. Over time, the blade became dull, like any normal knife, so I sharpened it and it works good as new. One problem with this knife is that sometimes the blade feels like it is loose when using it; problem roots from the screw on mechanism that if unscrewed even a little bit the blade can come out. Another problem is the cap that it comes with, the cap is a hard plastic that covered the whole blade and more but tends to scratch the inside of the cap unless it is perfectly placed in. Overall would recommend to anyone that needs to cut things precisely.

I'd recommend buying a small quantity to test before paying the premium for the z blades. The blade chipped and went dull just like any standard blade when trimming plastic, and electronics work. X-acto knives are great, but the spare blades I have from 10 years ago are just as good. I had to give the new one a try though. Maybe they hold an edge longer under gentle use cutting paper.

This little x-acto knife is great. It is light and easy to use and has a cap for safety. I used it to open that ridiculously difficult packaging that items so often comes in and it worked like a charm. No more struggling with the scissors.
