Not For Heavy Duty
I do tile and I've been looking for a knife that can handle the work I do. This is not terrible. It's somewhat durable as it's lasted me about 6 months with heavy use. The auto-load barely worked for a few weeks but when you try and place the 3 blades its supposed to fit, the blade you're using won't go back in. Its a simple one blade at a time otherwise you'll struggle pulling it in and out no matter if there's 1 or 3 blades inside. I wish the housing of the actual blade was more durable as I'm constantly getting it stuck when cutting up or down. When cutting down, the plastic storage that holds the blades isn't strong enough making the other fresh side of the blade cut through exactly where you hold the knife. All in all its a good idea and I put in the request for a warranty but will only be using it until I find a more suitable retractable folding utility knife. Don't fill it with blades, be careful when cutting with force.

Thank you
    Great concept
    I bought this knife today and im very disappointed i support Dewalt 100% but this knife is junk the blade wont stay in, its ridiculously hard to open there is not enough room for all three blade to fit in the storage unless i cram the 3rd one in and then i cant get it out
      It is a great idea.
      . I'm putting Live 2 weeks ago and screws are restarting Fallout. It's a great concept. They just need to find a way to keep screws in them coming loose. Put Loctite on the threads. Something
        A good quality knife
        I am very pleased with this knife it is easy to change the blades and it folds up so you can hang it on your belt. The ribs on the side help you to maintain a grip if you are cutting into to hard to cut material. You can store 3 blades right in the knife itself. You can always count on Dewalt to come up with a quality product.

        Very good knife
        Very good utility knife, the auto load feature works great, the only thing I have a problem with it the closing mechanism, which I find hard to push to the side and it digs into your finger of you're not wearing gloves, I would give this 5 stars if it was a lockback.
