It worked great right out of the box for about 5 min. Now the blades do not go back and forth. It still vibrates and the motor works, but can't cut anything. I am going to have to return it. I'd rather use a regular knife. I do however liked the safety switch! It was easy to use also until it didn't cut anymore.
Plastic gear that meshes with the metal worm gear on the motor stripped out after only a few light uses. Junk.
Had this for about 5 months, works pretty well for carving upholstery foam but the blades are already dull and it's nearly impossible to find replacement blades anywhere.
My husband loves it! It is very powerful and my husband saids, "It will cut!" It's a Forge in Fire tv show saying! He uses it to fillet Crappie.
I bought this item and the replacement plan, after 6 months sent it back and got the same as a replacement, broke after a few months.....will not buy this again and I would rather spend money on a better quality knife
