Very Good

"This Knife is a very good and safe one. Light can use on site as the blade is not fixed, reduces down rather small and compact, reat for not taking up much room in your kit."

Great Knife
25-Apr-2014
By
, Carrickfergus
"After using cheaper alternatives I visited your store in Newtownabbey (hooray at long last we have Screwfix in Northern Ireland) and purchased the Stanley Fatmax Folding Knife. Only fault with the purchase was removing the packaging. Delighted with the knife, does exactly what it says on the tin!!
Also purchased 2 x 10 litres of Crown White Emulsion at an excellent knock down price of £25."

STANLEY FATMAX KNIFE
03-Jan-2013
By
, Exmouth,Devon
"The knife was marvellous just what I needed to give as a present to a family member. The only thing against it was that there was no instructions with it informing the buyer on how to close the knife up properly and how to remove it without damaging the blade or cutting hands. The casing was not normal cardboard, maybe a prompt into how to remove it."

Great wee knife
12-Mar-2012
By
, Falkirk
"This knife is just as good as any normal stanley knife, but has the added bonus of folding in half so it fits in your pocket easier. Another good thing is that the knife actually retracts, unlike many other folding knifes on the market. It also has storage for two blades in the handle."

A good knife... but
10-Jul-2013
By
, Guildford
"Nice and comfortable, and easy to open/fold one handed. Hardest job was extracting it from the packaging.
Only downside I can find is that I cannot get it to accept the hook blades. They slide in but will not lock into place."

Good folding stanley knife
06-Apr-2013
By
, Linlithgow
"good compact easy to use general purpose knife.
The only down side was extracting the packaging from the blade slot was difficult, And the blade changing mechanism is stiff so slightly tricky pushing a new sharp blade into place!"

Gumshoe
10-Apr-2012
By
, Liverpool
"The knife is a good size to hold in your pocket when folded and this makes it easy to carry around safely when working and it is of good build quality.
My one bug bear is the initial set-up (getting the blade in and secure). I initially thought the knife was broken as the blade would not stay in place and the incremental thumb blade opener would not move the blade. I then googled the item and found out how to do it. Obvioulsy others had the same problem. (No instructions provided). When you know how its very easy but Stanley need to look at the initial setup instructions.
Anway its a decent knife thats safe to carry around when folded."

"Great knife only problem is to fold it you have to release a guard inside the knife not possible with gloves on gets annoying when you have to keep on taking a glove off"

Stanley FatMax Knife
27-Apr-2013
By
, Gravesend, Kent
"Pretty good folding knife, rubberised thumb pad, instant blade change with internal blade storage . Ergonomically designed, fairly heavy construction so its probably not that easy to break. The only problem I've found, is that the blade tends to slip out of the knife if I'm being a bit heavy handed with it."
