"1. Great comfy handle giving strong and controlled use on lengthy jobs i.e. plasterboarding.
2. it doesnt come with instructions, auto loading actually means push the black button pull old blade out and retract the empty blade holder and a new blade auto loads - pretty cool.
3. Dont retract the empty blade turn around the old blade and re-insert to use the other side.
Very strong well made. would recommend to any one need a good traditional stanley blade. The blades it comes with are also very very well made out performed Stan92 blades.

Quality knife

"A nice idea that by pushing a button, the old blade comes out, replaced by another one, pre-loaded in the little "blade reservoir".
Nice soft handle grip. The button sometimes get stuck though when you push the blade out and needs a bit of encouragement. If it weren't for that, I would give it 5 stars.

"A heavy knife, not one that's going to fall apart, should get a lot of wear out of it. Good grip."

Didn't work

"Bought two of these and both had a jammed slider catch so the blade couldn't be slide forward to use. Nobody could show me how to make them work so they've gone back. Waste of time."

Buy the fixed blade version
13-Sep-2012
By
, Leighton Buzzard
"Bought this knife to upgrade my fixed blade Stanley, wish I hadn't bothered, drylining a wall meant lots of scoring and cutting plasterboard.
After the blade stayed stuck in the board for the 6th time, I put the blades in my old knife and chucked the new one in the skip

Looks can be deceptive.

"This seemed like a good idea, Five blades at a time and a neat little flap to load them into. The tool itself is pretty well made on the outside and feels solid and reliable. It fails miserably in the blade. It broke within seconds of my using it. There is just too much going on inside the tool for it to be reliable. Blades fell out, stayed in the work when you pulled back and just pinged around all over the place.......keep it simple, keep it stanley."
