WOOD magazine review

Never have to sharpen

Review Summary

If you don’t want to sharpen the blade of a traditional marking knife, the X-ACTO uses disposable blades. (A five-pack of refill blades sells for about $3.50, and changing blades takes just seconds.) We like the rubber over-mold handle because it grips easily and has flat sides. One caveat, though: When marking along wood grain, the thin blade sometimes strayed from our straightedge and instead followed grain lines.
