Questions & Answers


Just received mine a couple of days ago so I haven't had a real chance to put it through its pace...

Asked by JBarleycorn March 24, 2020

My local stores don’t stock either knife or blades. Had to special order.

I have a Stanley knife model # 10-049 with black handle the black casing has broken can be repla...

Asked by pj August 10, 2018

According to Stanley this knife has a lifetime warranty on the casing (not the blade) ...send it back to them ...they should send you a replacement

If you sell the knife, and the blade "can not be resharpened", why don't you sell the replacement...

Asked by Hannah February 2, 2018

The blade on this Stanley #10-049 can be sharpened ...I've owned one for years ....sharpen it several times a week

I have a Black handle one doe they still make them?

Asked by Robin September 22, 2017

No, we currently do not have a black one in circulation.

how to open and close the blade?

Asked by RICK July 2, 2017

Both answers I see listed are half right. Looking at the knife as shown you will see two black "Tabs" at the back end. They are part of a single internal piece of spring-loaded plastic that you pull straight to the rear and then, while holding that piece back, you use your opposite hand's fingers or, if you prefer, your thumbnail, to pivot the blade open while simultaneously releasing the black plastic locking piece which will lock it in place. Closing is the same process in reverse. [Rick, I posted this for those who may have the same question as you did in 2017.]

Where can i get replacement Blade's for this Pocket knife? Replacement blades are #11-040, or 11-041 Stanley4 -1/4 in. Pocket Knife

Asked by April 8, 2015

Grainger. They'll either ship it to you (for a price), or you can pick it up at their facility of your choice for no extra charge. They're also very quick. I received mine in one day.

where can i find blades for the stanley 10-049 knife

Asked by beano October 29, 2014

Excellent Edge
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We buy these to use to remove the casting edge from nylon parts and for removing the turning burr on HDPE and Acetal.

Fantastic Knife
I've been using this knife for 28 years. Far superior to any basic folding blade razor knife. The blades are much stronger and even capable of cutting small strand and coax shielding wire as well as some hard plastics. With the proper fine grinding tools the blade life can be extended with a bit of care. In all these years the original case has never failed me. I don't know if the blades are still made from surgical stainless steel but they have always worked well for me. With a New blade it is like having a scalpel in an easy to use folding case. Perfect for the all around working person and most any job they may need it for. I Highly recommend this knife. By far one of the Stanley lines very best small hand tools.

Product as described, lightweight small utility knife that does what it is meant to. I had to remove a rough burr along top edge from the roundover to the point, I assume from being stamped out. I stropped the blade just to refine its sharpness, but it definitely is razor sharp. Only 4 for quality due to the plastic locking/release mechanism, I seem to recall older similar model having metal release, but I believe the plastic will be fine. As far as value, I think including 2 blades, one of each profile, the #11-040 Sheepfoot and the #11-041 spearpoint would be great. Also would be great if HD stocked replacement blades, but they are available online various places for less than $3 . Overall satisfied with the knife.
