This review is for several OLFA knives. They all seem similar so I ordered one of each and compare them here:
* 500/1580 (Old School)
* XA-1 (this one)
* ES-1/P 1115501
* SVR-2
All knives feature a narrow slot in their removable end cap/pocket clip to snap off the blade ends, and use the 9mm blade refill, Silver (standard) or Black (extra-sharp).

I cut standard brown corrugated cardboard and also some finer white cardboard. I also used some plastic from those horrible anti-theft retail packages. Surprisingly to me, this was not a difficult test for any knife.

The brown corrugated cardboard cut in half fully through in two passes. One pass is possible with much more pressure but it's a safer with two passes.

* 580/5001
Old school style
My wife has a decades-old knife of this style from school days. The old knife with a new blade cuts cardboard easily with the grain and against it.

New knife (this model) and thus new blade, cuts just the same as the old one. Of course the ratcheting or clicking slide action is somewhat stiffer than the decades-old knife.

Both knives cut through the plastic difficult-to-open plastic packaging with no problem and I felt safe doing it. I never felt the blade was going to move within the knife handle.

* XA-1
Says it has a Comfort Grip. Mine arrived with a Black blade, the super sharp one. The differences between the Silver and Black are not obvious to me, but after cutting more brown corrugated cardboard with different force and direction (with or against the grain) the Black blades are noticeably sharper, just not a lot. Black refill 10-pack is $11.19, Silver 10-pack $6.83.

Is the handle more comfortable than other models?

I've got to say, out of every snap knife I've used over the years, the Ofla Xa-1 1075449 is probably the best one I have ever had the chance to use. Not only is this the safest snap knife I have ever used, but it's also the most environmentally friendly, easiest to clean and the only snap knife I've ever used that could actually cut wallpaper, linoleum, rope and even leather. I really like that is how is made in Japan as well.

But what I really like most about this snap knife is compared to other brands (Dewalt, Hyde, Craftsman etc) how much safety features were put in this snap knife. Not only is there a thumb guard with a anti-slip comfort grip, but there is also blade channel (made out of entirely stainless steel metal) when the knife protrudes. In addition, when the lever is pushed to make the knife come out, this knife automatically locks in to place. In addition, there is absolutely no delay in the locking mechanism either, providing maximum safety.

But the safety doesn't end there, no not in the very least. In the event one wants to snap off a portion of the blade off, there is a removable pocket clip that functions both as a pocket clip, but also a blade snapper. Instead using another tool (or in the event no tools are presently around) your hands, this is much safer, quicker and will leave you with a perfectly even blade.

I don't mean to make safety sound so vital, but truth be told, safety really should be a top priority in using any tool of any kind. In a era where work is needed to be done at a much quicker pace, having products that can provide additional levels of safety is really a plus.

I break a LOT of boxes down for our recycling effort. Previously I used an OLFA utility knife and was happy with the results--until I ordered the OLFA Rubber Grip Utility Knife. The leverage you can generate using this ergonomic rubber grip allows you to cut through large and tough cardboard boxes (think 'banana box') like a hot knife through butter.

It of course helps that the blade is razor sharp, but the ease of use is really due to your ability to grip this knife in a way that automatically puts more power into the somewhat smaller cutting surface. No more repeating the cut to make sure that you get through the cardboard, no more bending of the blade as you try to make a straight cut. And it's also useful on plastic, rope, rubber and a host of other items. GREAT TOOL!!!!!

I couldn't believe how amazing this utility knife really is. After many years of building model kits without one, the difference is astonishing! Cuts through plastic like butter. Great for shaving off the last bit of nub on the piece before sanding. Having the rubber grip really helps. If I had to I would definitely buy this again!

I have been going through life with cheap plastic versions of this knife, and have been relatively happy. But, this is something else all together. It feels more sturdy and dependable than other knives. This is an instance where paying a little more will make your life easier on many levels. I am buying more of them.

I got this OLFA XA-1 after my beloved OLFA SVR-2 9mm Stainless Steel Auto-Lock Utility Knife 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 got this model because it was cheaper replacement and would be a little less painful if I stupidly take this to an airport again or if it decided to "walk away" from me.

Actually, this model is much more comfortable to use. Because the handle is larger and more ergonomic it's much easier to hold. Sure, it's plastic and not as attractive as all stainless steel SVR-2 but it has stainless steel blade channel so it should be as durable and more practical.

The only downside it is a bit bulkier.

update: Dec 18, 2013
well, this thing decided to walk away from me after 3 months and now i have to get another knife. but now the price has almost doubled and price difference is only $1 with SVR-2, i may pick up the svr-2 again. XA-1 was more practical knife but svr-2 just looked nicer and made me more proud using it. i don't understand why the price on amazon changes so much so fast though.
