Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jay Metal body, plastic important bits.
An object is only as strong as it's weakest link. For this knife, that link is the slide/lock button. The main body may be made of metal and it might have a good heft and a good feel and a solid design, but when the blades push a rut into the plastic slide/lock and the tin? locking bendy (which is literally just a carrot "^" shaped piece of metal) snaps in half the knife becomes little more than a paper weight.
These knives would be great for hobbies since it takes away the difficult and time consuming process of replacing dull blades, but I will not purchase another unless it's slide/lock is made of more robust design and material.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonnieV Great blade
I work at a digital printing shop and we print banners and all kinds of stickers on vinyl and this is the blade we use to hand cut those pieces. This is a great blade i go for the smaller 9mm one because it fits in my hand properly just like a pencil and it is easier to control. At work we love how we just snap off the blade and it's ready to use again. For the person that has said the mechanism for the lock-n-slide feature has failed this has happened to me as well and can be fixed, just take off the black part that says dewalt and its usually one of those metal clips that comes off, just snap it back into place and you are good to go.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CampbellGuy No replacement blades available?! Really!?
Great little knife; very sturdy, feels good in the hand and when you've worn out all the points drop it in the trash cause DW doesn't sell replacement blades as far as I can tell.
It could'a been a contender.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OctopusBeak Poor design made out of good materials
It has a good weight to it. The main body is solidly constructed but the endstop/belt clip on the hilt end is barely held on by friction. This leads to it popping off with less than the slightest provocation when you fully retract the blade. It does its job so poorly I don't think you can call it a belt clip (even though it looks like one) because I don't think it can support the weight of the knife without falling off. I still have this knife and use it (because it still 'works') but I loath every second because that endstop pops off so easily that I spend as much time looking for it as I do actually using the knife.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PeterD 1 of 3 failed after a couple of years but I'd buy another
I have three of these and use them primarily for cutting tape to open boxes. Have used these for a couple of years. On one the click mechanism that keeps the blade in position has completely failed leaving the blade to slide free. May be a fluke or may be a weakness in design or materials. Yet, I'd buy another. The painted cast metal body just gives the tool a nice heft and feel. I just like it. Superior to generic plastic versions and only a few dollars more. This kind of knife is so convenient due to being able to snap off the dull tip to expose a new sharp section, without having to have spare blades nearby.
