good solid knife
3 Oct 2015
By
, Herefordshire
" Not sure about the other reviewers stating that you needed to dismantle the knife to swap the blade. When the sliding mechanism lines up with the padlock symbol, you can press the yellow button and take the blade out. This is the second one I've had, Really comfortable, heavy enough to make it feel solid but not so heavy its a pain to use. "

Does what it says
9 Apr 2016
By
, Leamington Spa
" I'm not sure where other reviewers have got their negative comments from.
It doesn't require any screw removal to change the blade, I checked before I bought it and then double checked in the store, no screws!
It doesn't say it comes with 3 blades, it says clearly that it comes with one and that an Irwin blade is equal to three regular blades!
I haven't used it in anger yet but the build is strong, the extra blade access point is practical and as its Irwin I wouldn't have any concerns.

" Knife is ok but no better than many others available. Promotional material said that it is supplied with three blades... it isn't. "

Do not buy
1 Jul 2015

" This knife is so badly designed. When you realise, against all logic, that you need a Philips screwdriver to place the blade, the blade retainer jumps out with its spring and hinge bar. These then need incredible dexterity to replace.
Yes. You only got one blade, when there were supposed to be three, but this is a very very expensive disposable knife. You will never use it again. "

Not fit for purpose
8 Mar 2015
By
, West Midlnds
" Useless. There should have been three blades included - there is only one. Fitting the blade is impossible. I returned it straight away and had a refund.
I bought this because Irwin is a good reputable make and I was very disappointed.
Screwfix should stop selling it.

" I am amazed that you have to undo 2 small Philips screws to change the blade what a fiddly job would not recommend "

irwin protouch x
15 Jun 2014
By
, Derbyshire
" Bought this a couple of weeks ago. Looks and feels good. However , after a couple of blade changes and cutting plasterboard, the quick change button no longer releases the blade. Try to undo the tiny screws inside to open it up and it is a pain to get back together. A waste of money. No longer use it "
