Stanley fatmax knife
18 Apr 2016
By

" First twin blade Stanley knife I have bought and found it great for use on site one blade for plasterboard and another for keeping the old pencil sharp also using this knife to scribe is great due to having a more square surface on the knife to hold your tape against without the tape slipping off the knife find you get a straighter cut aswell overall a great product from Stanley "

its a knife !!
13 Mar 2016
By
, swansea
" been using one of these for over 2 years now and its been no problems having two blades in one knife nor has the sliding mechanism become stiff or unreliable. changing of blades is real easy once you know how to do it and takes only a second. much better than having to mess about with a screwdriver then spend ages looking for the screw on the floor like it used to be. if you cant handle two blades in one handle maybe you shouldnt be in charge of a knife...
even better now they droped the price to something a little more realistic !

" I used to have one of these until I dropped it down a 40m outlet, so I replaced it with the same. Twin blad use is ideal for roofing, hooked for felt and straight for linings.
Overall - Very weather resistant, a quick blast of WD40 will keep it running smooth for a long time "

" Bought this for removing old carpets. Seemed a good idea to have two types of blade to hand. A bit akward to get the blades in place at first but soon got the hang of it. "

" 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
, 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! "

" 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. "

" This thing lasted only 3 days of site use and the blades stopped retractingso there is one stuck in the open position, the little plastic clip to push to change the blades has also broken as a tradesman I expected a lot more from Stanley but shows there quality is not what it used to be. "

" Does what it needs to but the added complication of two blades isn't really worth the bother.
I'd recommend that you save your money, buy a "normal" knife and spend the saving on more blades. "

Nice idea but poorly done
20 Sep 2014
By
, Brentwood
" I use both straight and hooked blades al the time so having a knife which could use both seemed like a great idea. Unfortunately this knife doesn't manage to pull it off.
The knife feels cheap, plasticy and poorly made, the retracting mechanism is stiff and changing the blades is a nightmare as getting them slotted into the "quick change" mechanism is very hit and miss.
All in all, this is one to avoid. "
