Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tileguy solid utility knife
i've had a couple of these knifes for a few years now. both are still holding up. like another reviewer here, i have broken part of the nose off of one (mine broke on the bottom though) and it still works fine. not sure how it happened, but it's just a battle scar... the only thing i can list as a possible "con" with this knife is when you have to take it apart. (ie; when you break a blade) it can be tricky to get it back together. not a huge deal though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bert Awesome knife!
I'm not sure what's up with the reviews from people who had a hard time changing blades with and don't like this knife. Retract the blade out as if you were going to use it, press the yellow button and the blade comes out. Easily. Press the button again, put a new blade in...done! The button is a lock that locks the blade in place. It stores up to five .25mm blades in the bottom part of the handle that's also an easy to get to buttosn press. There is no need to take this knife apart. It's not meant to come apart. It also has a belt cutter that I use constantly to strip small wires. I've had mine 4 years and love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joshua Great knife! I highly recommend it.
I love this Knife. I've got 4 of them now and have had a few of them for more than 6 years.
I love the quick change feature and the blade storage in the handle is amazingly convenient and very easy to use. The feel and weight of the knife is nice and it fits in the hand very comfortably.
I was surprised to see that this knife had a one star review from someone, because I love these blades. I got my first one around 2005 or 2006, and I quickly decided that it was the best utility knife I had ever owned.
The only one of them I've ever had break, broke because I was trying to cut a really hard to get to cut-out in a piece of vinyl siding and I was using a hammer to beat on the top of the knife to drive the blade down. Given, that was not the intended use for the knife, but it got the job done, and the blade is still fully functional, the damage to the blade was purely cosmetic and it still works great. Not to mention that particular blade has seen extremely heavy use since the day I bought it.
I guess with any product one buys they run the chance of getting a lemon, and maybe that's what happened to the other reviewer, because like I said, I have four of these and everyone of them is awesome. I actually bought another one a few days ago and it's feel and weight seem identical to the other ones I already owned. I'm very happy with this particular product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HomePros 10-777 Fat Max anything but quick change
The 10-777 Fat Max is a nice looking utility knife, but the quick change part is anything but quick as the blade slide gets hung up everything you try to put it back together. I don't have 15 - 20 minutes to change blades (some time longer). The idea is there but it still has design flaws.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LeoinMA Godd enough knife - overpriced and poor instructions
Knife feels good in hand and works fine. Overpriced at Home Depot, and you will have to search the Internet if you can't figure out how to put in a blade because instructions that come with it are terrible and limited (but they're in 3 languges!). My poor rating is not for the knife itself.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MdKC Please look at a different knife
"Instant change" means pull it apart and put a new blade in....All knifes are instant change like that. I like Stanley and really wanted to like this one, It is made with a smooth plastic handle that has very little grip. Not impressed or happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MRCOONACE THIRD MOST USED TOOL I HAVE
THIS IS A REALLY GOOD KNIFE. I WORKED HARDCORE FRAMING FOR MANY YEARS AND THIS KNIFE STAYED RIGHT BESIDE ME. I HAVE DROPPED IT OFF OF ROOFS, CUT MANY SHINGLES WITH IT, BEAT ON IT WITH MY HAMMER (2ND MOST USED TOOL). IT HOLD UP IN ALL KINDS OF WEATHER AND SAND. JUST KEEP IT WELL OILED AND IT'LL WORK FINE. MY MOST USED TOOL IS A PRY BAR, IT IS FOUND IN THE PAINTING DEPARTMENT OF HOME DEPOT. NOT THE ONE FROM LOWES. LOVE THE KNIFE.
