I have had this knife for about three years now and use it constantly... A boss I had a couple years ago saw me changing a blade one day and wanted to see it... I showed it to him and he liked it so much, he went and bought 3 or 4 for the shop. ALL of them worked PRECISELY the same as mine (I had to show everyone how this works - it's stunning how the simple omission of instructions makes this product so incredibly annoying!). It's so perfectly simple to change blades, it's downright silly, BUT... there is a catch...

This tool has one GLARING flaw - It's simply not immediately obvious how to PROPERLY operate it to change blades. However, I have it down pat, so follow along and learn:

To remove a blade, it takes three steps...

1) Push the slider button down and forward ALL the way to the front until it stops (three position stops)...

2) Now, PRESS the slider button down and press forward... it will click and stay down.

3) FIRMLY press on the yellow release button with your thumb and carefully grasp the blade with thumb and forefinger of opposite hand and withdraw it...

To insert a new blade...

1) PRESS AND HOLD the yellow button and grasping blade with thumb and forefinger of opposite hand, insert blade into tool and push all the way back until it stops moving (there should be little or no resistance).

2) RETRACT the blade normally.

Notes:

1) If you try to insert a blade WITHOUT PRESSING AND HOLDING THE YELLOW BUTTON, the blade will pop the lock into place and the blade will not fit into the tool.

Putting in the blade on the Stanley 10788 the first time is pretty much impossible to figure out on your own. My next door super-fixit-neighbor could not figure it out. The hang card for the knife has a single tiny picture of a hand holding a knife with vaguely-pointed arrows. It makes IKEA instructions seem like an encyclopedia.

There are no instructions online at Stanley and no video on YouTube by Stanley (Hellooooo Stanley....it is the 21st century....) I finally found a description of the slider button trick online at a DIY site. Pros: I still have my dad's Stanley utility knife from the 50's (the kind you have to unscrew to change the blade). I expect this Stanley to be 4- or 5-star quality and last forever. Plus ergonomic. Cons: I am giving only 2 stars, because this thing is so strange to load. (Hey Stanley, how about pre-loading the 10-788 with a blade? How about including a website address for the 10788 that comes up first when you Google Stanley 10788, with photo by photo instructions??)

If you decide to get this knife here is what you need to do to load it the first time:
--Get a blade out. There is a black release on the top of the knife on the tail end opposite the blade. Depress (rock forward). You will see it open if you look at the knife from the side. The lower half of the knife tail will swing down (the release and compartment are all part of the same piece of plastic). Take out a blade and snap it back closed.
--Slide the slider button in the slot on top of the knife all the way forward. This is what extends and retracts the blade when it is finally loaded (gold-colored button on mine).
--Push the slider button down AND HOLD IT DOWN, THE KEY INSTRUCTION MISSING IS HOLDING THE SLIDER BUTTON ALL THE WAY DOWN.

I work in a warehouse and I need a good Box-Cutter, and of all the Box-Cutters I have owned and used, this one is by far the best. First off; you don't need any tools to change the blade, and the knife holds about 6 blades in its handle which conveniently drops down. It takes me all of 20 seconds to change the blade, even less time if I am only changing which half of the blade sticks out. Another nice thing is that it is meaty and it has a rubber like material on the top side which gives you a grip that is un-real, so it feels secure and comfortable in your hand whether you're wearing gloves or no gloves. Trust me when I say that this knife will not slip out of your hands, gloves or no gloves. It has a string cutting feature, but I have not used it so I will not comment on it. I have used the Knife for over two months now, and it has fallen off shelves, boxes, etc..... onto the cement floor (sometimes from as high as 7 or 8 feet) all I ever do is just pick it up cause nothing comes loose on it, and the knife still looks new. The Stanley 10-788 is truely a great utility knife, it is not a knife you will be replacing anytime soon, as long as you don't let anyone borrow it.

I am not happy with this cutter. Cutter comes with paper when it's first delivered. And there's a mini instruction how to take the paper out and how to instal the blade. I did follow exactly what the instruction was telling me. But the paper broke and it got stuck inside where the blade goes and the paper is so thick and coated with plastics so I can't remove it. I thought to return but I just don't have time and for the price I just forget about it and buy new one at store some time in the future.
