This is exactly what I needed to cut out my fondant decorations for my cakes etc. I love that it has the protective cap on it as it is very sharp. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I bought this to trim and clean parts for plastic models and have been quite satisfied. This is a good tool for basic cutting tasks. My only complaint is that the blades are a little flimsy and chip somewhat easily. They are rather cheap to replace, so it's not much of a concern. The cap is useful in preventing accidental injuries. I suggest buying a box of replacement blades, as this set only comes with one blade.

First off, I have to say that this knife is SUPER SHARP. I purchased this to cut and peel UPC labels off products for rebates, and it works fantastic. The blade is amazingly sharp and precise, and the blade is firm enough to easily handle some prying to peel the sticker up. Obviously this is a fantastic tool for any job where you need something sharp. It works well as a box opener and it works great on those awful clamshell plastic packages. You can use this to cut around all the seams, leaving your new product (and your hands, fingers, and sanity) unharmed.

One important note: although this isn't the cheapest knife on Amazon, I would highly recommend getting this particular one for one reason: the cap. I've had Xacto knives floating around in tool drawers and plastic bins before and let me tell you - you don't want extremely sharp objects just "floating around." Invest in the cap. It's not the most snug fit, but the cap does it's job and it stays on the knife for safe storage.

This is my first Exacto knife, and it will not be my last. I do not know how I ever got along without it. I used it for fine trimming of wood and copper foil. For fine cutting, I recommend it.

Having never owned an Xacto knife before, I didn't think it could be THAT great. "All razor blades are more or less the same," I had thought to myself. I could not have been more wrong.

This thing gives new meaning to precision cutting and reveals a whole new dimension of sharpness that I had never even imagined. I've found it to be the perfect tool for MANY different applications - from cutting to carving and everything in between. With a typical utility razor, I could feel the blade drag and catch while failing to make even cuts. The Xacto blades slide through everything I've faced it with like butter while leaving behind a smoothly clean cut.

The handle is solid metal and comparable in thickness & length to a pencil - perhaps with a slightly greater circumference. The knurled grip area near the blade provides slip free cutting traction and you get the overall sensation of quality when it is held in your hands.

Like other reviewers have already expressed, I have no clue how I've gotten along without one of these.

The handle is solid and strong (The major thing that comes to mind is "Sturdy", the included blade is sharp and the safety cap works as expected. My only complaint is the blade holder. They seemed to have went with a quick-replace type of system which includes screwing a piece of metal on that holds the blade in place through pressure. This works well enough if you tighten it really well, but that makes replacing the blade in the future more of a hassle. I'd have much preferred a type of set screw to securely hold the blade in place, potentially with a small thumb screw for tool-less replacement.

You get what you pay for I guess. I use xacto knives a lot. While it did last me a while it did not last as long as other Xacto knives that I have purchased. The blade broke soon after it arrived. The blade came loose so often I couldn't use it anymore. Super glue really came in handy. The downside to that was that I can no longer switch the blade. I will not be purchasing again because it was not sturdy enough for me. If you use it every once and a while or on soft things I would recommend this product. I did receive the item quickly and it did come in good shape. That was pretty much the only thing I liked about it.
