Does the blade retract into the body or do you need to take the blade out and put it in the handle when safely storing the knife?
Asked by: DRose
Thank you for your inquiry. No, the blade does not retract. It has a Swing-open design which allows for easy blade storage.

any good for drywall

Asked by: benny
Hi Benny, you can use it on drywall. However this knife handle is designed for use when cutting flooring, whether carpet or vinyl. The blade thickness is also different for drywall. You can get a decent utility knife for drywall that does not cost that much. You can check the blade dimensions, you might be able to get drywall cutting blades that will fit this handle.

Multi-Purpose Utility and Carpet Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on laminate flooring installations! Great cutting knife. Has a great feel to it and it cuts really nice. Used it on my Allure Traffic Master laminate flooring installation and it worked awesome. No need for saws. Just used this knife to score the flooring plank and snapped it clean. Worth the money for the right tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Yet Comfortable I have had this knife for many years and it is my go-to knife for serious cutting. It's ergonomic shape fits well in your hand and is strong enough to cut through heavy material safely.

However, since the production of these knives moved they don't last as long as they used to. The blade holding area wears out to fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite knife Great knife. Holds blade steady with ergonomic grip. The mechanism to store blades in the knife is quick and simple to use and, in my opinion, far more robust than the traditional retractable mechanism. Highly recommended product. Cheap too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective cutting tool This utility knife is very functional, it cuts great and easily. The angle is perfect and the weight/feel is good. It is metal and the red endpiece screws off to allow the handle to swing apart in order to get the stored blads and to change the blade. I only wish the blade were retractible. Other than that, it is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size! The size is perfect for gripping as I've had hand surgery and need larger handles since my grip has changed - and knife storage is a wonderful plus.
