    Q:I'm looking for a utility knife that does not have a lot of "play" on the blade, in other words, one that holds the blade firmly and does not jiggle around. Not sure what fixed blade means here, but does this item hold the blade firmly?

            A:  There is a very small amount of in and out play if you carefully pull/push on the blade. Tested only with the blades that came with it.

                A:  Easy

                by|Feb 11, 2020

                  A:  this is literally the dumbest knife ever put our by any company. It does not feed blades. It does not even pull blades back in. You see that big black thing in the middle of it? That's where you need to stick an oversized flathead screwdriver to open it up, take a blade out, and put it in the cutting holder. I just bought the knife. it's stupid. hopefully they accept the return. 0 RATING.

                    A:  To open it, you turn the thumb knob counter clockwise until it opens, reverse to close.

                      Designed to send you to urgent care. Class action lawsuit waiting to happen. Read the other reviews. Pops open while cutting, sends the blade into your index finger.

                        This product is no good! I needed this for a protect the next morning. This item has no instructions at all! I normally buy everything Dewalt brand which I am extremely disappointed the wheel on the knife doesn't even turn it seem stuck I unscrewed it and still nothing! I Googled and YouTube it I found no useful information and this seems to be a newer model. The design of this blade knife is trouble I wish I had time when I purchased it to check out the reviews. I never had trouble with other blades before this is simply a waste of money and a head ache. Dewalt should be ashamed of themselves to release s product with such a defect or such complications. I now will move on to a different brand! I will be returning!!!

                            This utility knife worked great, blades were extremely sharp. It made cutting the carpet off of the stairs a breeze. The only thing that I wasn't crazy about was that the blade isn't retractable.

                            Love my purchase, but the only draw back is safety. There is no safety guard for when not in use. The blade has to be removed and stored in the handle.

                              Best utility knife I’ve owned
                              Most knives I’ve used last less than 6 months. I’ve been using one of these for over 2 years now and it’s still going strong. Fewer moving parts means it’s more durable. And whoever needs instructions for how to loosen a thumb screw shouldn’t be using a knife of any kind.

                                great fixed blade knife
                                Exactly what you need in a knife. If you have a hard time with this knife you shouldnt be using any tools. It holds hook or straight blades. Its effortless to change blades. You dont need tools to open this. If you’re to weak to unscrew it you can use just about anything flat to turn it. Holds five blades in the handle.

                                  Great knife
                                  DON'T LISTEN TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS. It's a knife.. it's not hard to use and doesn't need instructions. You turn the screw to the left to open it and put extra blades under the spring inside. It closes just fine with about 5 blades stored in the handle. My co-workers and I use these for roofing and we love them. Best fixed blade utility knife ive ever had.

                                    ok
                                    Sharpe razor, great feel, comfortable. Blade change is different and the tab that holds the blades in the handle is tricky. What i would recommend is a retractable blade knife because there is a safety factor with fixed blade knives. Most people are in to much of a hurry to remove the blade everytime.
