Nice knife
it's a good knife and love the way it sits in my hand, not as nice as the previous model, but it's OK. Blade cover just broke off after about 3months of use. and I use about 3 blades a week, so it doesn't get to much abuse. also the cover opens and closes roughly. it should be just a smooth open and close.

    Fantastic Knife
    I bought 2x of these in 2016. Have yet to open the 2nd because the first one is still holding up like a champ. There's a lot of bad reviews for this knife but i love it. I'm a Firefighter and Landscape Construction Professional on a daily basis. This knife is my go to knife. Fits perfectly in the hand and extremely durable. As you can see from the picture mine has been through a lot and well used in the last 5 years. Love it! As with all my DeWalt tools built with quality.

      Sturdy Knife
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I started using this knife about a week ago. First thing I noticed was the sturdy construction. Since its a folding knife, the handle is wider than standard utility knives and it fits my hand better. On board blade storage is nice. The blade stays fixed in the quick blade change release even when pulling hard on the knife. The only thing I can say i didn't like is that you have to retract the blade before folding it closed. It essentially doubles the time it takes to close the knife. Its only a little more time but when you're on a ladder holding something, it can be annoying. Ill keep using this knife because it works well for me.

        Excellent upgrade!!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this about a week ago and really love the quality that I’ve come to expect from Dewalt products. It is very well built, rugged (as I use this as my primary pocket/general knife, and carry/use it daily here in Washington State) and all of the features it offers. I have carried a Dewalt Auto auto load folding utility knife (DWHT10261) for at least 8 years that is my absolute favorite utility knife and purchased a mother Dewalt folding utility knife back in 2016 (DW10035). The DW10035 is ok but I didn’t care for the location of the blade storage release and it just felt “cheap” (it is not as solid in my opinion as the DWHT10261). So I leave it in my tool box as a good “spare”. But then saw this new DWHT10035L and just had to see if it would replace my DWHT10261. Upon opening the package, it is built very solid. Has great weight and feel in my hands. This is far better then its predecessor (the DW10035) and the storage release tap is now located outside the folding frame of the knife unlike the previous model. So now I have TWO FAVORITE utility knives that I trade out every other day (don’t like to have my knives feeling neglected lol). So in short, yes I would definitely recommend this utility knife to anyone.

          Sleek and durable knife.
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This utility knife surprised me a bit. When I received it, I thought it was going to be a bit bulkier than it was, since it folded, but it's fairly compact. It has the signature yellow and black housing, and the all-metal core, it looks very nice when you use it or have it stowed away. It has a belt clip, which is a personal selling point for me, has to have the belt clip. The housing has a compartment for extra blade storage, tucked neatly away for minimal clatter when using it, and it comes with 3 blades, the max capacity of the storage, so that was nice. The rapid load system is pretty neat, and works pretty well. The only thing is the button is a bit small so that it still folds away, so if you have big fingers it might take a second to get the hang of it. Overall I've been using this knife as my daily knife for a bit now, and it gets the job done well, and fast, I would definitely give this 5 stars, very heavy duty, feels good in your hands and to use. And since the folding is done using the clip to secure, instead of the bump on the back, it can replace a pocket knife of the same style, if you're looking to do some more precision cutting.

            Found out it is the blades.
            I bought this and also some IRWIN replacement blades. I read the reviews and found out I was having the same problems most people were having.....keeping the blade in, the button not working. blade not retracting. Come to find out, the blades that come with the knife are slightly smaller than what they need to be. I took the knife completely apart and reassembled before I decided to try the IRWIN blades. They fit like a glove with no movement whatsoever. Here are some photos with the IRWIN blades behind the DeWalt blades that came with the knife. You can clearly see the difference in the size when flush at the bottom, top and right side of the blades. Hopefully this will help more consumers. DeWalt has better quality than this so this is an epic fail on their part.

              Shattered into three pieces
              This utility knife (box cutter) slipped from my hand and shattered into three pieces when it hit the floor. The black part of the handle broke off, and the little knob that extends or retracts the blade broke off. What happened to DeWalt's legendary toughness? I would only recommend this knife to people I don't like.
                Terrible quality
                Terrible change in quality....had my old one for years loved it ...new plastic one i dropped once and broke.....
                  I've had this utility knife for about two years now. Its held up great to daily use in the field....
                  I've had this utility knife for about two years now. Its held up great to daily use in the field. I really like the option of storing extra blades in the handle. Its a little thick in the pocket, however with it being thicker than most other knifes it fits really well in the hand and is very comfortable to use. The pocket clip holds it tight and keeps it in place. I haven't had any issues with it falling out of my pocket. Its lasted me a lot longer than expected, especially at this price point. I would recommend this product.
