Retractable Utility Knife with Blade Storage

Review Summary

While at an auto parts store, I noticed this utility knife on close out along with a couple of other tools. It was priced at $9.xx reduced to $3.59, but it had a $5.00 rebate. (do the math) In spite of my absolute distaste for rebates, I just had to buy this knife. I found it extremely comfortable, easy to use, easy to change blades, & comfortable (maybe I mentioned that already). It soon became the utility knife I went looking for even if any of the others were easier to find.
Then one day I misplaced it & went out & paid full price for another. It showed up again, & I now have 3 in my collection. It will slow down a bit if it gets a few days of drywall dust inside, but a quick spray w/ wd40 & it's good as new. The blade storage is a bonus, & the blades that come with it are of good quality & hold a sharp edge longer than most blades. Summary = The best utility knife I've ever owned.

Durable utility knife

Review Summary

This utility knive if pretty durable and has held up to repeated usage, however the one flaw I do not like is the blade stowage. The magnet which holds the blade in the stowage area makes it very difficult to remove blades, which may cause injury if not careful.
