For years I used cheap plastic snap-off knives, but I always wanted a nicer, more durable version. Those plastic housings can break fairly easily, and the locking mechanism is flimsy. And now I have found it.
As others have pointed out, the knife is quite slender, though it is slightly heavier than it might appear, being made of stainless steel. It fits nicely in a shirt pocket. The clip is springy and appears sturdy, and pops off to act as a blade snapper. Nifty!
This particular model is auto-locking, meaning that the blade will not move when pressure is applied until you actually move the slider forward or back. It is very easy and fluid to use.Read more ›
The stainless steel construction did not bend or even flex when I tested it with more pressure than it would ever get in normal use. The black thumb slide, the only plastic component, is fairly solid and well protected when the knife is fully assembled. The pocket clip includes a thin slot that is used to snap off the end of the blade to refresh the tip (there are 12 disposable segments on each blade). It fits tightly yet slides off easily so the thumb slide can be backed out of the slot in order to replace the blade.
Replacement blades are easy to find in art supply stores (and elsewhere) but this sleek, all stainless steel Ofla model is more elusive. Ordering through the 'Olfa Central' store on Amazon could not have been easier and delivery time was good.
What I would have liked to see, which I did get on a very similar knife (but from a different manufacturer), is a CAP to slide over the end of the knife. I would feel more comfortable sliding this into/out of my pockets with a cover on the end. When pulling the knife out of your pocket, it is easy to snagged the blade slider on fabric, and unintentionally extend the blade out the end of the knife as you are pulling it out (personal experience). You end up pulling out an extended blade, which is not very safe when you aren't expecting it.

Unfortunately, my beloved OLFA SVR-2 was confiscated by an airport officer. I took the blade out and thought it was good enough. But officer insisted on confiscating it anyways on the basis of it still looked like a knife and made a (threatening) clicking noise.
I bought OLFA 1075449 XA-1 to replace SVR-2. Yes, it's plastic. Yes, it's not as pretty. Yes, it's bulkier. Yes it doesn't make you look pro like SVR-2. But it's twice as cheap and bigger handle actually makes it more usable. Also it doesn't have the thumb slide issue I had with SVR-2. So, if you can live with it's larger size and less attractive package, XA-1 is more practical option. Also since it's cheaper, it is less painful if it decides to "walk away" from me or being confiscated.

Nice little knife. I ordered it thinking it was twice as large (18mm), but the small pen sized knife is surprisingly useful. I use it often, despite the small size.Published 2 months ago by A.W.
