Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase for a small price! We used this utility knife for cutting a thick wall paper that we installed under our kitchen cabinets. The handle is a little longer than most knives and is very easy to hold in your hand. It made our job much easier. I recommend this product and look forward to using it on other projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MULTI-PURPOSE UTILITY AND CARPET KNIFE Love it. Glad the Home Depot website suggested it when I was looking for wallpaper. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 31, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good knife! This worked just as it should! it had a good grip and cut my smart tiles well. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by useful only bought the item to raise my purchase price to get free shipping ;>} but it was very useful when installing the carpet. December 19, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 29, 2010
