"Seems fairly sturdy and bulky enough to get a good grip. Handy having two blades installed plus spares stored in the handle."

"The idea is great with the two blade system. Works perfectly at first but after some use the slide action became very stiff. Still does the job and for the price it is a great purchase."

Very clever twin blade idea.
1 May 2011
By CappenBoidseye
, West of Scotland
"Ignore the previous reviewer, this knife just needs better instructions on the packet! It holds two blades with a safety interlock to stop you having both blades out at once. After some initial fiddling I figured out the loading mechanism. You extend one blade holder fully, then move a small yellow lever sideways while pushing your new blade into the slot. This could be explained using words but the package has a cryptic diagram so that you can be confused in any language! Once you figure it out it works well. Much better than dismantling the knife!"

Rubbish

"I only had this knife 3 days and the slider for the blade broke. I can only use one side of the knift now. Plus the knife is wide so you can only use the tip of the blade. I wouldn't buy this product if your a tradesman it just won't last and there are better knifts to be had. For the diyer it's great to keep in your draw use it twice a year to sharpen your pencil and look at its beauty."

"Total waste of cash! One side has seized up and now I cant get a blade in the other side. The storage space for the blades in the handle is just not big enough to get the spare blades in either!!"

rubbish fatmax knife
17 Dec 2013

"Sadly I only read the first page of reviews before purchasing . I was tempted by the half price deal - what a fool!!! no wonder they were half price. I bought 3. Now looking to send back for a refund. This is the most poorly designed knife I have come across . I agree with all the negative comments re trying to fit the baldes etc etc"

Nice blade but poorly designed
25 Sep 2012
By HomeFixerDIY
, London
"I bought this blade as soon as i saw it thinking great. Sadly it has to be one of the poorest design ever. It is solidly constructed, but compared to other products on the market it is a nightmare to insert the blade. I have an Irwin which has a quick blade change where you can pop it open at a click of a button. This one has two hex keys, so you need to carry one around if you want to change the blade. It comes with two normal blades and two hooked ones. When I undid the two nuts to fit the blades the whole thing came apart. It took me tens minutes to put it back together again. If I have to do this every time I need to change blades then it aint going to be much use if you are a carpet fitter. It is well built but I think I shall stick to carrying two separate knives."

"An elaborate tool without function. Remove screws to fit blade and it falls in a dozen pieces for which you require two pairs of hands to try to reassemble. My advice, having learned the hard way, stick to thr old efficient, cheap Stanley knife which has stood the test of time. I would certainly not recommend the FatMax!"
