Just works, bomb proof.
I don’t know how long I’ve owned this knife, it seems like forever and it’s not let me down yet. And that’s despite me loosing it for about two years and it spending that time on a customers garage roof. I found it today, a bit of silicone spray, five minutes with some sand paper and a new blade and it’s perfectly functional again. What more do you want?
    I have had one of these for over 3 years now and it is the best utility knife I’ve tried. I use it almost everyday for a very wide variety of applications and I don’t have a single complaint about it

      Decent knife
      This knife is decent, not great, but decent. It would be better if the could extend a little farther. That said, it’s comfortable to hold, and it’s easy to change the blade, which releases easily. Spare blades store securely in the handle, which opens with the push of a button. I’ve had this knife for several years and it’s held up well.

        Best box cutter on the market
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this box cutter. I also own one that has a safety release and it’s good but I prefer this one. There’s nothing fancy about it, but there’s also no reason to reinvent the wheel. It’s practically indestructible. I honestly doubt that I’ll ever need to buy another unless I lose this one. It doesn’t have any major safety features so you’ll want to keep it away from kids, but I also can’t imagine their fingers are strong enough to release the blade. Great stuff!

          Excellent grip and easy to change blade
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This knife has a great grip, feels comfortable and I believe the best feature would be the ease of changing the blade. No unscrewing something, no twisting the handle apart, just extend it, push the yellow button and pull the blade out. I have the dual blade version of this and this one is a little easier to change and a nicer fit in my hand. Each definitely have their advantageous. The heft and solid feel in your hand help in cutting and the confidence in using it. With the ability to keep spare blades in the handle you should never have a dull blade.

            Best Utility Knife I’ve Owned
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thing feels very nice in your hand. Great grip, solid weight. Very simple & easy to change out the blades. My only complaint would be that the packaging gives no direction on how to open up the storage compartment for extra blades. It took me a little bit to figure out how that black button at the bottom came into play. Overall, would definitely recommend.
              What a piece of junk!
              Just purchased. Can not remove plastic hang tab, cut off tab to read instructions. Oh wait there are none! Cannot advance blade. Cannot open. Cannot use. If I’m going to give away money I’d prefer the charity of my choice not Stanley tools. Try again. Now I have to waste 45 minutes of my life to return because the packaging cannot be removed from the inside of the blade holder. Asked quality time f product. Who knows packaging stuck in the darned thing
                Works great when you don't use the supplied blades
                Took one star off for poor and incomplete instructions that are in 1-point type and packaging that is way too hard to remove. Took off another star because Stanley supplied blades that did not work with this knife handle. However, when I use bulk no-name aftermarket blades, the knife handle works perfectly. Why? Who knows? The Stanley blades have only two notches on the top, where the aftermarket blades have four notches. (See photo below.) It does feel like the knife handle's internal mechanism finds a notch on the aftermarket blades that it does not find on the Stanley blades.

                  push button blade release does not work
                  Stanley sent me 7 to replace 1 that did not work. ALL SEVEN DID NOT WORK!. 9 utility knives in total, failure rate 100%
                    The worst
                    Wish I read the reviews before buying! Single mom and can’t take it back tonight, when I need it the most! Wish I had bought literally anything else
