Customer Reviews

Must have at least one of them. Good but too thin for hand. The standard yellow one feels better, same functionality, and cheaper. I had the original yellow one for over 30 years, stolen by neighbor--who won't admit to it. So I had to buy a replacement--had not realized how much I used it. Now I have bought three--this one and two of the default yellow ones. Set for next 30 years. 4A "perfect product" of the century, likely to outlive you. I was given, as a gift, an earlier model (in the early 1960s) of this cutter, and have been using it since then weekly if not daily. Recently I moved to a new home, and of course I have had to cut open many boxes associated with both moving and online furniture purchases. My old knife (the yellow one in the photo) cuts heavy cardboard like a steak knife going through butter. The 1960 cutter is still working like new, but I have decided to get another one because I am tired of looking for it all over my apartment. I am surprised that the latest model looks and works (very well indeed) like the old model. Anyway, I am glad I have two of them now; I am sure both units will outlive me. Of the 50 spare blade sticks I was given some 55 years ago, I still have about 30-35 left (see photo). This is because each cut-off blade remains sharp so long that I seldom find it necessary to replace it by breaking it off. If anything can be called a perfect product, this OLFA cutter is it. 5A Utility Knife of the Highest Quality I got this a couple months ago, and I'll say just say it now: buy this item. It's inexpensive and the blades are quality. Each tiny blade keeps its edge for a surprisingly long time! I keep this tool with me daily and I've used it almost every day. It's small enough for me to keep in my back pocket and not notice. I did find that it sometimes slips out when I put it in my front pocket, so be careful! It's so small that it's easy to loose track of, and I've misplaced it a lot which always bummed be out since Iove using it so much.Its one of those tools that are so well designed and I can appreciate the attention to detail that they took on this tool. The blade is interchangeable and can be flipped for right handed or left handed users.It's safe to say that I'm extremely happy with this purchase. If I ever lost it I will absolutely buy another one. I might even buy 5 to keep a stockpile!Note: the knife is designed with a small detachable pocket clip that doubles as a tool to snap off a dull blade. I lost this piece, but it still works really well :-) 5Great quality utility knife Had a plastic version of this knife but managed to lose it. With 100 spare blades (which will last me through eternity), needed another knife. Only a few dollars more than the plastic ones, much higher quality. I like the SVR-2 version since it locks the blade into place automatically, you don t have to manually lock it into place like my old plastic one. 5Got it, used it, had to get another I was in the middle of a re-screening project when I realized how crummy my existing utility razor was. It had a similar snap-off tip design, but the lock for the blade was positioned such that I would accidentally move it every once in a while. Just a little PITA. I saw this OLFA on Amazon and read all the positive reviews, so I figured I'd get one. It arrived in under 24-hours (prime) and I started using it immediately. What a difference! This little gem is very well made (stainless steel, really?) and fits easily into hard to reach places. The blade lock is also flat and positioned so that it doesn't get easily pushed by accident. There's even a little shirt pocket clip on the back (just remember to retract the blade before sticking it into your pocket).I used it to complete the re-screening project and it's a real pleasure. I like it so much that I just ordered another one. 5One-upped my old X-acto knife One of my all time favorite tools. I keep it in my pen cup to use for all sorts of things. Great for unpacking Amazon boxes, but also art projects, breaking into plastic shells on purchased products, pruning houseplants, carving pumpkins, no end of uses. The tips easily snap off with any pliers so you can always have a fresh sharp edge. Exceptionally easy to load replacement blades. Very light weight but strong enough to press into heavy cardboard and other dense materials. Small enough tip to get into tricky spaces. Easy to maneuver for curved-line cuts as well as good with a metal straight edge for matting artwork, etc. The retractability makes it easy to carry in your pocket or bag to go anywhere. It's one of those tools: so simple, so well-designed, so versatile, that I think no one should be without it. 5High Quality item That you Want to Put in your Pocket Instantaneously It is very pleasing to look at and to touch such a precision made product. I didn't highly rate the ergonomics because it isn't very comfortable when you don't have the big grip (actually, I can't speak about the comfort of the grip - I haven't tried it yet). And it isn't very comfortable because it is very low profile and very portable. I got the knife because of it sleekness. it easy to carry in my pocket. I am kind of happy having it because it is so well made. There aren't a lot of things nowadays that are made with such an attention to the smallest detail. 5Good for what it is but can be hard to hold for long periods. These are good but kind of hard to hold IMO. I got this one and then I got the OLFA 1075449 XA-1 9mm Fiberglass Rubber Grip Utility Knife and I have to say I like that one so much more because it's easy to hold and is so versatile. This is good for only the lightest of duty work. It's good for what it is and is very small but also somewhat limited in its use. 3Fantastic I bought this knife to use as a marking knife in woodworking (knives give a finer, clearer line than pencils). A marking knife needs to be very sharp, but very handy and safe, because it is in and out of your hand quite a lot. I have tried all sorts of other marking knives, including the handle-less Japanese style. (Once I nearly stabbed myself in the foot when I knocked one off a work table. It would have gone right through my foot, I am sure.) Snap-off knives are superior to all of those. The blade is thin enough to cut deeply, and since the blade is sharpened on the long edge instead of the bevel edge (like Japanese marking knives are), it is easier to bear down while making a cut. The blade retracts, making the knife pocketable. The blade also locks, making it safe to bear down on. Moving the blade in and out is fast and fluid, making it easy to use. Lastly the blade is always sharp, since you can easily snap off a dull section and expose a sharp new point.For years I used cheap plastic snap-off knives, but I always wanted a nicer, more durable version. Those plastic housings can break fairly easily, and the locking mechanism is flimsy. And now I have found it.As others have pointed out, the knife is quite slender, though it is slightly heavier than it might appear, being made of stainless steel. It fits nicely in a shirt pocket. The clip is springy and appears sturdy, and pops off to act as a blade snapper. Nifty!This particular model is auto-locking, meaning that the blade will not move when pressure is applied until you actually move the slider forward or back. It is very easy and fluid to use. Unlike another reviewer, I haven't had a problem with moving the slider unintentionally, but that could possibly be a problem when a blade is nearly used up and the slider is out near the tip of the knife. In any case, I hold it with my index finger extended along the top of the knife, so the tip of the blade is almost under my fingertip. It cuts where I point, in other words. This gives me a lot of control and accuracy, and feels very natural, and no part of my hand touches the slider.Olfa makes a few other knives that are hard to tell apart, even from the descriptions on their web page. The slightly cheaper SVR-1 does not lock automatically. To lock the blade you move the slider backwards just a bit (those cheap plastic ones work the same way.) To me that is a somewhat less safe option. The SAC-1 is very similar, but its blades come to a sharper point, making it more suitable for cutting stencils and other exacting work. It could probably replace those ubiquitous Exacto #11 blades, actually.Lastly, there are three different types of replacement blades: stainless steel, carbon steel, and "Ultrasharp". I recommend the carbon steel unless you work in a wet environment. They are cheaper, stronger and stay sharp longer. Just wipe it with mineral oil or tool sealant like Top-cote. 5Durable, Precise and Sharp! I use this OLFA Utility Knife every day, and from my experience I found:- It's great for precise work such as neatly cutting individual traces on circuit boards.- It does an decent job at cleaning up edges on Plastic or Wood.- Extremely durable housing and auto locking mechanism.-The mechanism makes a delightfully series of clicks as the blade is extended or retracted.- Comfortable and Convenient Form Factor, comparable to a permanent markerCons:- The Pocket Clip/Blade Cracking tool) has bent out of shape, allowing the tool to fall out of my pocket.Note: My fault completely, but i did end up cutting my finger tip very deeply with this tool. The cut require 3 stitches, but it caused no nerve damage. I also learned to use a vise to hold objects i am cutting :p 5
