      Answer This Question

      A:  It will depend on how stiff/hard the plastic is on the receptacle. This knife with its break off blades does the best job on "softer" products. It will work on just the wire mold no problem.

          Really good knife!
          I’ve been buying these knives for about 6 years now. And I still really like this knife with its quick lock and the piece of metal on the back of it comes in really handy quite often. I believe I am still using the first knife I bought about 6 years ago. Really good knife!

            This knife is super sharp and comfortable. Pictures don’t do justice on how strong and thick the blades are. Love the knife I’ve picked up a few of them. This company also has great customer relations that’s another reason why I support them.

              OLFA Utility Knife
              Not only is this an amazing knife but the company has absolutely impeccable service. All I had to do was contact them via Instagram and they sent me a free knife to try out before I decided to purchase a bunch of different items that they created. I own my own business and we do many different things; therefore it is an absolute must to have so many different variations of utility knifes on hand at all times; Olfa makes this possible! Great quality, durable, sharp and reliable. I would recommend these products/company to any and everyone!

                Awesome product
                Love the way it feels in my hands
                  The only tool I always carry.
                  I have been using an LA-X for painting and wallpaper for about 4 years and can't think of anyway to improve this knife.

                    Actually Impressed.
                    Entered to win this as a free sample about a month ago. I do facilities maintenance so I cover several trades. On first inspection I noticed blades are very sharp. Used it to cut thick beads of caulk out of decking and it performed very well. It is very helpful to be able to change the length of your cutting edge to get in extra deep in materials. This is something I noticed right away as a huge advantage over my utility knife. Ergonomics are great. Much better than my all steel folding utility knives. Very comfortable to grip and no signs yet of rubber wearing off despite being in an out of pockets/ pouches and grinding against different materials. After this I used it on a simpler task of cutting some ceiling tiles. Again, being able to extend the edge proved extremely useful as it allowed for a much cleaner and deeper cut on the show edges of the ceiling tiles. The blades last just as long as my DeWalt utility blades I normally use for tiles. Tiles really beat up an edge. This will now be my go to ceiling tile knife. The last task I have used this for is peeling off a fiberglass wrap off of a pipe from a failed attempted repair. Similar material to what Dr's use to wrap broken limbs in. Right away the tips broke on both blades I used. Using the meat of the blade I had no issues. This was a real test for this knife. Although the tip broke, the rest of the blades held up fine for the task. It took many many cuts to remove this material. Also the knife was covered in water during this and still shows no signs of rust. Breaking down boxes and cutting plastic shipping ties is no task at all for this knife, effortlessly done. The blades are very thin so even when they start to dull they still perform well. Honestly I highly recommend it. I would buy this knife if I lost it. I already bought some replacement blades but I have only used 4 of the original that came with the knife so I am sure the 10 pk will last me some time.

                      Best utility knife I have used.
                      I have used this knife on a daily basis since I received it. The first thing I noticed was how much better it felt in my hand compared to other utility knives I have used in the past. The increment stops are very positive and tactile. The blade was noticeably sharper and has stayed sharp. I have used this knife for everything from opening packages, cleaning splinters from pocket holes after drilling, to cutting templates in cardboard and plastics. It has stood up to every job I have put it to. I'm a believer.

                        Great retractable sliding mechanism
                        I frequently used Olfa L and the upgrade retractable action is worth it. I'm not necessarily fond of the new grip since it attract tissue dirt in pants pockets. Now if model L can have the same sliding mechanism :)
