Rated 4 out of 5 by JDavidJ A good, safe tool
The plastic handle for my snap-off blades was getting worn, as it's been used for years. I fancied the idea of a much more robust item, and this fitted the bill.
It takes the standard large blades, so my spares weren't wasted. There is a knurled knob at the tip to lock the blade, so it doesn't slide in or out during use like cheaper models - which can lead to cut fingers or snapped blades.It also has an ergonomic shape to give comfortable use.
The only problem has been that the little button-slider that slides the blade in and out is not a particularly positive fit in the hole in the blade, and occasionally when I go to move the blade out it stays put! Designer please note.
Overall, a great improvement on earlier knives.
