Great Knife but could be improved. Rated 4 by Anonymous
I use my knife in a warehouse, opening pallets wrapped in shrink wrap. I'm flipping open my knife about 100 times a night, and I have found that doing so has made the screws come loose that hold the blade in, I even lost one. For me the wire stripper only gets caught on the shrink wrap, along with the extra little piece of metal that sticks out at the bottom of the blade holder. I would be happier with a smooth blade holder base. On the up side, I love the weight of the knife, and the all metal design. I don't have to worry about it breaking if I was to drop it. I have had this problem in the past with other knives.

Well Built Knife, one thing though.. Rated 4 by Anonymous
I've moved to folding knives to save room in my tool pouch, and this has been my favorite knife! However, one thing I would change is adding a guard to the blade release button. As an electrician, I commonly hold the knife in my right hand, thumbs up sign sideways, with the knife towards and above my thumb to strip down the side of large cables. But my index finger almost always releases the blade in the process, causing the blade to pop out while I'm stripping the cable. I love the quick opening ability of this knife, and feel while it's in use. Good knife, but would love a raised guard around that release button!

Great work knife Rated 5 by Anonymous
I use this at work on a daily basis. I've enjoyed the ergonomic shape and easy changing of blades. I flip it open dozens of times a night at work and its been great. I think the blade change is the best feature. A lot of expensive DeWalt and Lenox knives are a pain to load a blade in, this knife takes about 3 seconds to do it safely and it locks in nicely. The only problem I've encountered is the lint from my pocket clogs the opening bearing. Even after oiling it still has to be opened by hand now. But it lasted over a year before that cloged. The knife is still excellent.

Best Utility knife I''ve used to date Rated 5 by Anonymous
  Yes, I recommend this product.
I search for quality & craftsmanship in almost all products I buy, rarely do I write reviews unless I feel a product truly deserves it. I'm a cabinet installer, I've tried most knives available and use them for altering and carving panels, shimms, stock, trim, moldings etc.. This knife fills the niche wonderfully, best precision and control I've seen, when I'm up on the step ladder setting my cabinets I can operate it w/ one hand unlike other knives. Also, I prefer this model over the Fastback2 because it's thinner, and I can wield it w/ more precision for those fine cuts.
