Very tough best on the market
28-Feb-2013
By
, Gloucester
"I have had one of these since April 2006. I lives in the leg pocket of my snickers trousers and gets used countless times every day. It never falls out of the pocket and I am replacing it with one that is identical. I am replacing it as finally the blade carrier has worn out and the blade dislodges and jams the slide. In fact I am going to buy two and squirrel one away in the back of my desk draw as there is always a danger that they will stop making them."

Solid Knife
26-Feb-2013
By
, Nottingham, UK
"A good knife, comfortable in the hand, looks nice.
I did tend to find initially that I could open it by mistake, but haven't done that since in use.
Standard blades, well fixed and solid."

Irwin ProTouch? Retractable Kn
17-Mar-2012
By
, Basingstoke
"This is without a doubt the best knife I have ever used. The blades take about 20 seconds to change and no tools required either.
The blades that are supplied are really sharp and seem to last longer than normal blades but then I suppose it depends on what it is you are cutting.
Really good value for money."

Great knife
01-Feb-2010
By
, Huddersfield
"Brilliant knife, very comfortable grip with good locking mechanism.
Easy to open (slide lock, no need for screwdriver) with storage for plenty of extra blades inside, comes with a pack of about 5 blades.
Nothing to fault other than price, but worth the extra over the cheaper stanley knives in my opinion"

Irwin Knife
30-Jul-2012
By
, essex
"A nice ergonomically designed knife that has a comfortabel feel when held. The case is easy to pen and blade chaning is easy. the integral storage clip for spare blades (suppled) is also very good. The quality is good and if you want a lasting comfortable knife then this one is hard to beat. Its only the price that lets it down, but I suppose you have to pay for quality!"

A Decent quality tool
08-Mar-2009
By
, Newcastle upon Tyne
"Good knife, a little bit difficult to open without the use of a screwdriver. It also has a quick release blade feature which allows you to remove and replace the blade without having to open the knife. The knife didn't come with a set of instructions so I actually thought the blade holder was faulty, it was just by chance I stumbled across the Irwin website and found out about the feature there."

Well made knife
31-Aug-2012
By
, Thame
"Knife is strong and well-made, blades seem strong and sharp. Would buy a different knife next time - the slider for retracting the blade is just where I want to press down when cutting, so the blade sometimes retracts unintentionally."
