Appears to be a good item, with a slight flaw that the screws work loose and fall out regularity. The concept of this knife is great just needs a little more engineering application and thought!!! You replace it because it is a CRAFTSMAN TOOL but,what a pain!!!!
I owned this knife for a short while before returning it for a refund. Pros: Small size, light weight, fits in back pocket. Cons: Blade wobbles very loose, locking mechanism unlocks in back pocket, unfolds when removing from back pocket, exposing the blade risking injury, the length of the switch goes back too far to operate with one hand (always had to use two hands to slide without dropping), made in china. I recommend buying a Stanley utility knife with a screw -- it will hold up under heavy load, fits in pocket and will not release when removing from back pocket. Buyer Beware!
Use this everyday at work. I recommend pairing it with Sharp Point Blades but it also accepts Round Edged utility Blades. I personally use Stanley branded utility blades in mine but Craftsman branded utility Blades.
SHC employee here, this blade is great for general use cutting/opening. A few issues that members come up with is that the blade is wobbly, or it will open in the pocket when the blade is supposed to be locked, heres how to fix that issue-
Take an Allen key and adjust the 4 bolts on the silver metal plate until the blade assembly does not wobble, or you feel some resistance when trying to slide the blade out.
I bought one of these utility knife's a couple months ago and loved it so much I had to purchase two more to keep around the house. Somehow they get misplaced so now I can locate them all the time.
This utility knife by Craftsman is not just strong, durable and amazing, but also affordable. The quality of this utility knife is superb and I love the fact that it slides instead of folds. The slider has a lock on it so that you don't have to worry about the blade slipping out on you. There are many different brands and options to choose from, but from my personal experience with this item, I would have to fully recommend this.
