My favorite so far

Review Summary

I got frustrated with the off brand utility knifes that I own, constantly coming open on me in use and the blade falling out, so in my search for an upgrade I found this one and so far it is my favorite and heres why. It has a big enough handle so you can get a nice secure grip on it when in use. The blade can be changed quickly. You simply move the blade all the way forward to unlock the release button,then press the button and remove the old blade and slip in the new one.
This is a good feature to prevent loosing it in use, with an accidental push of the release button. It has easily accessible blade storage in the handle by pressing a release button that's not in the way of regular use. This knife has all this at a better price point than any other I've seen so far. and you can pick it up at almost any hardware store or home center. It's the bomb!

Not my favorite

Review Summary

I have a lot of box cutters in my tool box. I have a couple of these. They are just ok. The are a step above the old ones that you have to unscrew to remove the blade. The plastic cover for the blade storage makes the knife feel cheap. The yellow blade release button is finicky. I fight blade changes every time.
