The only thing I disliked about it is the documentation that came with it is simply a series of pictures with no words. So when it came time to change the blade, I couldn't figure out how to do it. The pictures in the documentation were useless for that function.
I ended up googling the brand name and model number and the words "How to change blades" and I found a You-Tube video that explained it very well.
Utility knives have come a long way from your basic Stanley, need a screwdriver / split the handle first generation utility knife. Every battery powered hand tool I own is DeWalt, the reason.....quality.
Hence, this DWHT 10035L. The build of this knife is no exception. It's sturdy, compact and has a positive lock and although it's a little bit of a fight to get at them, there is the well enclosed three blade storage. All in all, with the fair price, this is a good choice to fill a slot in tool bag. The only negative about this purchase are the two chips on the enameled finish, most likely from handling during the manufacturing / packaging process. This is a cosmetic issue and not worth a fuss as the finish is a baked on enameled satin finish. With the quality design / build (DeWalt) of this little jewel, it'll stand up well to the every day / occasional use it will be subjected to.
UPDATE APRIL 2018:
Y'know what, seven months later, I don't think I said enough nice things about this knife, so here's some more. I bought this to replace an otherwise perfectly serviceable utility knife that was a bit... eager, if you know what I mean, especially when I was going up ladders. I wanted something that wasn't gonna surprise my thigh with a friendly slash, so I went for one that required two very deliberate actions to open. Well, it opens, it extends, it cuts, it retracts, and it closes, and nothing's lost tension or started to get squiffy yet, so job's a good 'un.
My finger rests nicely parallel with the blade on a wee surface with grippy knobs, without the retraction lever getting in the way, which means cutting with this thing is as easy as sliding my index finger down the thing I want to cut. When folded up, it's small enough to fit in a pointlessly-tiny compartment of my overstuffed toolbox. It's solid, heavy enough to not feel cheap, light enough that I don't begrudge its weight when picking up my toolbox. It's bright yellow, so it's hard to lose. I haven't even managed to chip the paint, and I'm not gentle. To replace the blade, press the black button at the end of the knife and pull on a part of the blade that isn't sharp.
I'm racking my brains trying to think of an improvement that could be made to this thing, and I really can't. Nice work, Dewalt.
(aha - last-second before I hit the submit button - swap the colours. Have the silver part yellow, and the yellow part silver - that makes the knife more visible when it's open. People who buy two-action utility knives like this are thinking of safety, and a bright yellow thing in the corner of their eye will remind them to close the blade.)
When I ordered this I also ordered the Kobalt equivalent, I wasn't sure which one I would prefer, but the package has arrived. The Kobalt is top heavy on balance, too long, too wide.. the handle feels like cheap plastic. I am sorely disappointed. I do like the finger well, and locking mechanism, but from Kobalt I really expect more.
However, this DeWalt has rubberized grips, metal handle, adjustable angle, storage for extra blades, retractable, quick change blades, string cutter, and a very sturdy belt clip. If anything ever comes loose, it would be easy to tighten and adjust. Another feature I love is that when the knife is closed there is no wasted space, it is very compact for having every feature under the sun. Impressive.
If I could send my wish list to DeWalt I would ask them to make the knife completely metal as the part that holds the blade is plastic, it will scratch and scar over time but will not effect the use, and it could be a half an inch less thick, but give it 10 more years..
In conclusion, I can't say enough good things about this knife. I'm in love, but can I play devil's advocate for just one moment? Do you see the small workpro know in the picture also? It's only 3" long, less than half an inch wide, has a quick change blades, locks when open. It isn't just cheap junk either. This is really what's is needed, something so small you forget you have it, but you never have to be without it, and sturdy enough for any project.. If they could find a spot for one extra blade I think they could put DeWalt and Kobalt out of business.
