Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cisco Horrid design
The nut that is part of the hinge design has fallen off on two out of my three knives, it just comes loose from opening and closing the knife. All of them the back little guard that keeps the knife straight has fallen off as well on all of them. The screws that hold the blade holder together have stripped themselves and no longer hold the blade. The knives are thick and not great to open in the first place. The previous design was much greater. Not perfect but much better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EGW1957 Best Utility Knife I've Ever Bought
I purcased 2 3pcs sets of this Utility Knife and love them. I have one in each of my 5 cars and 1 for the garage and at work. I only problem I had is that one of the handels used to release the blade is broken, This mean the blade is not locked in place and bends backwards about a half inch before it locks. the belt hook was perfect for my caribeaner I use on my work lanyard. Knife is a little bulkey and heavy but not that bad compared to other knifes with the same features. Sorry to hear they are now discontinued, I would recomend this knife. Price is right plus the 15 extra blades is a steal. Have been in contact to see if I can get the one replace. Overall I love this knife

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SDM24 hard to lock and unlock blade
The price was right and I had bought some similar in the past so I thought these would be just like them. They have a different style unlocking mechanism. The mechanism seems to work better after spraying it with pb blaster. I don't know how long it will remain freed up. Only time will tell. I can see how this got discontinued. With a little tlc this product can be ok but why should you have to lubricate a brand new product to make it work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LM07 Seems ok to me
There are a lot of negative reviews on here for this knife set, but I haven't had any problems with mine. I've used them for cutting drywall mostly and haven't had any issues with loosing blades or having them fold over as others have mentioned despite not being particularly careful.
I planned on just getting a retractable knife, but I like that these are a little harder to open since I have small kids at home and I don't think they could open one if they somehow got ahold of it. I don't find it difficult to open with two hands, but opening it with one hand is a pain.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MSquared Bound to Break
The stop that prevents the blade from folding back on itself is poorly designed. It is a small cylinder wedged between the two sides of the knife. If you press hard enough the cylinder pops out and your knuckles crash into whatever you were trying to cut. All three of my knives broke within 6 months. Bad enough for a recall.
If its worth anything, I own a husky tape measurer and flood light that I like a lot. This ruins my otherwise stellar perception of husky products. Its a shame, a darn shame.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cableman worst utility knife ever
I work for a cable company, so a lot of my work is done in the air. I really like the design of this tool but My first night of using this the blade fell out while 30ft up. Not a good thing at 2AM. No biggie i bought the set of 3 and took 2 up with me (in case i drop the whole knife) and blade number 2 popped out. Now I'm mad because I left my kobalt knife at home, Got a new blade from truck and very very carefully cut what i needed to. You can not put pressure on this tool otherwise it is worthless and the blade will fall out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DataX Not as described in Web Listing.
Item was listed as 3 Pack with 15 Blades. Item received is 3 Pack with 6 Blades. A different of 9 Blades per pack. So on my Order of 5 Sets, I lost 9 Blades x 5 Sets = 45 Blades short.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tileguybythesea Not impressed
Was looking for new utility knives, and wanted something that was very heavy duty.
Saw this 3 pack of Husky utility knives that looked extremely well built.
So now a couple of days later, and I have a use for this new tool. I needed to slightly shave a piece of new drywall, and to my surprise, the small chrome pin above the t-lock devise, (which is there to prevent the blade holder from overextending), pops out and renders the knife useless. I had to find a tweezer to put this apparently spring loaded pin back in.
And just to make sure this was not a fluke, I used the knife again the next day, again not on anything where I was putting a large amount of pressure on the blade, and again the pin was dislodged.
I think Husky needs to go back to their engineering department.
