yes, make sure the blade is sharp. Keep a firm hold on the handle for a good, clean cut.

How do you fold the knife?

Answers

by pressing the silver button on the handle. Hold it down tightly and you can bend the blade. Be very careful not to cut yourself with the blade. I suggest you do it with both hands.

What's the length and width of the unfolded handle?

Amazing!
Great utility knife for $5.97. When I saw it at Home Depot. I picked up one right away. High quality! It doesn’t feel cheap in your hands.

The knife is very efficient, comfortable and practical. The clip makes the blade always available, it is not very thick and it is very easy to change the blades. I have compared it to other brands and this knife is better than the others.

This is a good knife. It is compact, maybe a little more than I would like it to be. A little longer would have been better for me. Anyway, it handles well and won't close once you open it unless you want it to. When changing blades, it opens easily, but can be a little tricky to close sometimes. I used it to cut up boxes and had no issues with it. So, I can recommend this utility knife.

My preferred folding utility knife now. Solid construction combined with a lighter weight design in a smaller package makes this knife a winner. Comparing it to more expensive compact knifes made by Craftsman and Gerber this one is clearly superior in both comfort during use and safety. One handed opening and closing isn't the easiest, but is still pretty decent. The pocket clip has a nicely balanced grip. All knives I've used by many different manufacturers with a push button release all suffer from poor blade retention. They all pull out in heavy cuts. This knife with it's swinging gate construction doesn't have this problem. Although I haven't tried any heavy cuts like in drywall or tar paper, I did put the blade in my vise and was able to lift up that side of my workbench several times. If you're breaking down boxes, stripping the sheathing off romex, scoring acrylic, or the myriad of other general uses then this knife will suit you fine. The issue I have with the knife is the plate on the blade carrier on the same side as the pocket clip. It caught on the seam of a new pair of jeans and ripped the seam out when being pulled out. There's a lip created by this extra piece that could have been avoided by leaving this unnecessary piece off. I put a drop of epoxy on it to make a ramped transition, but I shouldn't have to fix the manufacturer's/designer's mistakes.

This folding utility knife is approximately 4 inches long opened. Carefully push the button mid way down the shank and the knife blade is secured in a durable sheath. The knife appears to be very durable and comes with a belt clip to put on you belt, pants or utility holster. The replaceable blade is easily removed and can be purchased at any Home Depot at a reasonable cost. The Utility knife, once folded easily fits in your pants pocket with no bulk. A great value.

I purchased one of these to replace an older Husky Compact Folding Lock-Back Utility Knife that I've had for about three years. It was my favorite knife because it was small and light-weight. I carried it in my pocket all the time and used it for everything. But then the other day the lock spring finally broke. This knife seemed like the closest replacement, but when I opened it and tried it out I was disappointed to find that it was considerably heavier and thicker than the older model, making it much less suitable for carrying in one's pocket. The older model had aluminum sides, whereas this one has steel/pot-metal sides. My impression is that Husky was having quality control issues with the older model, perhaps partly due to the low price and lifetime guarantee. However, I wish there were still a small, light-weight folding utility knife on the market, even if it were to cost $10 to 20.

The actual size of it is small, but fully opened, is still capable of cutting anything you put in front of it. Not a bad backup utility knife to have. That is what I use it for and the price, can't beat it...
