Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYNet Hard to Close
This product is really nice, I like the compact size and love the red color. However it is very difficult to close. It's hard to push the to mechanism to get the blade to fold down. I tried it several time and my fingers and thumbs were very sore as I tried to get it to work without much effort. Maybe it loosens up after a while but I don't think my hands can take it while it's getting to that point. It's definitely going back to Home Depot. Perhaps with larger, stronger hands it would not be an issue.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by XXX Not very good, cheap not only in price
I purchased this knife really just to see what one gets for $5.00 and now I know: not much. The screws are off center, the blade release mechanism is flimsy, etc. I know it's only $5.00 but you can do much better for about $1 or $2 more. It seems like a good idea to try and make a very compact utility knife that holds a standard contractor blade. The problem here is in the execution.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chrischung Cheap. Good.
Sturdy, thin, attached belt clip. Had to cut circles in the carpet during installation and this worked with ease.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AL20 Great knife
20 years army, five as a fire fighter and a contractor.I have many of these knives. They are awesome. I keep them in all my gear. Always one in my pocket. I also carry a name brand multi-tool. Having this is great if it dulls no problem just swap blades. Keeps my more expensive knife sharp. The blades do not fall out like as someone else posted, only if the blade is installed incorrectly and that's very hard to do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SPDRMNKY replace the blade
Not a bad little knife...once you replace the blade. Bought it today...based on price and that it is slim and compact. Figure if I like it/use it I can always get a fancier one. Took it out of the packaging to trim some plastic for a spacer I was making...yeah. Would not cut...safely. It took way too much pressure to chop the plastic to length...then the edge rolled over when it hit my tile countertop (don't ask). Then it took way too much pressure to slice...and the plastic actually ruined the rest of the edge. Swapped out to one of my blades (0.025 in the bulk dispenser type) and problem solved. It is a little short for my liking, and we'll see how it goes with gloves on. The unlock mechanism is on the back...but I knew that when I bought it. The mechanism does not work smoothly though, and I am not able to close it with one hand...might take it apart and remedy that. You get what you pay for...sure, but for $5 it'll let me test the waters on this kind of knife for everyday use. 3 stars based on bad blade and rough lock mechanism.
