Couldn't remove/replace blade. Futzed with it like an idiot for awhile, couldn't figure out what seems obvious ("this thing here looks like it should be a release button"). Searched online, no instructions or anything. Finally looked up number on side, found these reviews, one mentioning to take it apart and put it back together. Did so, now it works. First and last Dewalt item I bother with - if they can't get this right I don't care what their name is or how good their other stuff is.

Wish I could give this "Zero" stars. Blade changing feature does not work, could not add a new blade. Lack of instruction or no video posted with the sku is abysmal. Returning tomorrow.

Unable to change the blade. The blade release button on the side of this knife does not work.

I have been using this knife for more than 2 years know as a professional carpenter. It still works the same as it did on day one. It has held up extremely well on the quality aspect, minus the normal wear and tear. I have never had any issues with inserting or removing the blades. It has worked well with both normal blades and hook blades.

Installed blade but it would not move out with lever. No way to remove it. Garbage! Now I'll have to drive a half hour to return it.

I don't know why there are so many people having issues putting a blade into this knife? Mine brand new was a bit tight but it still only took me 1.5 min to load the blade in. I own both the folding and retractable versions and love them both equally. I would go with the folding one for a solid home use utility knife; but since I do commercial construction I ended up getting the retractable version for heavy duty work like cutting copious amounts of drywall. Ignore the bad reviews because a lot of them sound like operator error!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyAndy2010 Great Knife from Dewalt
I picked up a 2 pack of Dewalt utility knives. I have used these for years and there my preferred utility knife. First they stand out, easy to spot on my work truck. Who can't recognize Dewalts yellow on black? Easy to take apart if you ever have to. I have only had to open 1 up so far, after getting wet. I easily opened, cleaned and re-assembled.Didn't rust up either.

This is one of the best utility knives I've used; and I've used several. This knife feels good in your hand and the weight is also nice. Some of the reviews mentioned that the blade change procedure is awkward, and even dangerous. This is not the case. The quick change mechanism is almost identical to Stanley, Husky, and other brands that have the quick change feature. It is very easy to change blades on this knife. The only issue I have with this knife is that it is a little over priced.
