Top customer reviews
1. Stainless steel body. Looks great, takes a beating, fairly ergonomic.
2. Locking mechanism. I was skeptical when I first opened the 5019, as the actual locking mechanism seems to be made mostly of plastic. I would have preferred metal. But after months of heavy use, it still locks up with a secure definite indent. There's a helpful audible click that lets you know that you've advanced one blade segment.
3. Overall usefulness. I have electrician shears, large utility knives, folding pocket knives, etc, at my work table, and this is still the first edged instrument I reach for.
1. Price: The knife itself can't do anything that a $0.99 hardware counter plastic keychain knife won't do nearly as well. But the the Olfa will last a lifetime, stay sharp longer, and be easier on your hands. And be a pleasure to use. The Olfa brand blades, while very effective and corrosion resistant, can be hard to find. And pricey. The SVR-2 accepts any standard 13-segment, snap-off utility knife blades. So you have options.
Conclusion: This Olfa product is the best of its kind. Strong, sharp, easy-to-use, and long-lasting. I will purchase more Olfa products in the future. Seriously: buy this, you won't regret paying a bit extra for a quality tool like this!
The knife is very compact, and could be too small for large hands. Also, when the blade is short, and the slider is near the tip, it's possible to press on the slider accidentally and allow the blade to slide back into the housing. Nonetheless, the knife is so well-built, so effortless to use, and so compact that it deserves the five-star rating.
This feels nice in your hand, and it's all metal except for the piece where you put your thumb to slide the blade out, but even that I can tell by feel is a better quality than those cheap knives.
