Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for heavy-duty use
The curved handle with cushioned grip surface makes this utility knife ideal for working on tough surfaces (e.g. dry walls) where more pressure is required — the grip helps with comfort & balance, and the curved handle gives you more control over the knife. The locking mechanism is also strong enough to withstand the pressure required when working on tough surfaces.
Pro Has a gut hook
This utility knife comes with a tiny gut hook which can be used to cut thin items (such as wires or strings) without sliding out the blade.
Pro Can store up to 10 blades
The blade storage compartment located in the handle (pictured here) can hold up to 10 blades.
Pro Comes with 3 blades out of the box
This utility knife comes with 3 blades in its storage compartment.
Pro Locking mechanism ensures blade stays in place
The locking mechanism is strong and can hold the blade out under high pressure, even if the blade is not fully extended.
Con Blade can be dangerous and difficult to replace
While this utility knife is designed to be and marketed as "Quick-Change," many users tend to experience the opposite. The blade is hard to remove and inserting a new blade requires some effort — you have to wiggle the blade around until you hear it click into the locking mechanism. You also have to hold the blade tightly with your fingers the entire time, which makes it more dangerous. There is a YouTube video here showing the process.
Con Form factor makes this knife not very portable
This is a retractable knife (instead of folding knife), so it might be hard to carry this around in a pocket or other small spaces. It's also huge, with the total length at around 9inches (22cm).
