Great Craft Knife
30 Nov 2015
By
, Surrey
" This is a terrific knife for the handyman and odd jobbing. It is bulkier than similar knives I have used in the past but this in my opinion is not a problem. In fact the bulk together with the materials used to make the knife add to the robust and sturdy feel.
It was available slightly cheaper from elsewhere but, as it was needed for immediate use, the convenience of the local Screwfix store was the determining factor in buying from Screwfix. "

BLADES OF GLORY!
14 Sep 2015
By
, Burton
" Bought this to cut through some 20mm rubber flooring. After a few swipes it went straight through. Easy to hold when applying lots of pressure, the long handle makes life easy. No blade snaps either!
Blades are easy to switch around ends when one becomes blunt. Sometimes the screw does work a little loose with hard use, but easy to tighten up again. Great value considering it comes with 10 blades. "

" Quite the best Stanley/Utility knife I've ever had.
Particularly like the way the blade retract is locked with the side knob.
Comes with 10 blades. Blade change easy
Reasonable value at £12.99. "

" Blades are all pretty standard, but this knife is very comfortable.
Used it so far to take up some lino and cut plasterboard.
Nice weight, feels solid. Pleased with purchase. "

A professional's knife
10 May 2013
By
, Brighton
" If you only ever buy one utility knife, then this is it. Solid, well made, should last years. The retractable blade version works well, but does need a really good tighten to keep the blade from slipping. Good spare blade storage with room for at least 10 standard blades. But, beware, this knife doesn't take prisoners. With the weight and a new blade, this will take your pinkies off and you wouldn't feel it - this is a Dirty Harry knife, not a Clousaeu.. I got so upset when I lost my first one that I went straight out to get another. "

Good knife, but flawed design
30 May 2015
By
, London
" I'm surprised only one person has mention this, but when you tighten the brass knob, the blade becomes stuck and very difficult to retract - in-fact if you loosen it slightly, you can retract the blade but it doesn't go fully in, so a tiny sharp point protrudes - which I've cut myself on.
So you do need to loosen to move retract/extend the blade fully, then tighten to lock in place - which is a bit annoying, but I can live with it.
Apart from that it's good solid knife. I've used it on tough materials and it's held up well. It's bigger than I was expecting - bigger than a normal Stanley knife, but feels good in the hand. "

Faulty version?
21 Aug 2014
By
, London
" Purchased this on the basis of good reviews
Blistered my thumb with the mechanism which jammed after replacing once blade
Could be a faulty individual product given the other reviews
+ Sharp blades and good design
- Mechanism seemed to jam very quickly
