Product Description

Cut a Rug With a Craftsman Utility Knife

Grab a Craftsman folding utility knife when you need a quality blade to open any type of cardboard box, plywood packing container or even to score and cut drywall and carpet for a DIY basement renovation. This versatile utility knife features a lock-back blade that folds just like a pocket knife providing safe and convenient storage. The design includes a knurled, thumb knob to allow for quick, easy single-hand opening and release of the blade so you can use your other hand hold things steady.

The Craftsman utility knife measures 4 in. in length, including its 3.5 in. blade. The aluminum handle is lightweight and comfortable to hold throughout the day, even when cutting and laying vinyl tiles in a laundry room or new carpeting in the guest room. The quick-change blade mechanism is convenient and easy to use even if your experience with using an utility knife is minimal. The folding utility knife from Craftsman comes with three replacement blades.

It's lightweight but it's no lightweight!

This utility knife is one of my favorite tool purchases ever. The knife is easy to use, by opening and closing like a jack-knife. The blades change easily in three steps, and it uses standard utility blades, making it easy to keep stocked with fresh blades. The anodized aluminum body makes it very light but strong, and the knurled surface ensures a good grip even when your hands are a bit on the slippery side.

I actually purchased a second one during a rebate special, so it ended up being free. I probably use these knives once a week, for opening packages, or prying small things (not recommended), or cutting apart cardboard for recycling. I have yet to have any problems with either one, and even if I did have a problem, it's backed up by the Craftsman forever guarantee.

The only thing I think could be improved is the holster, which is nylon mesh. A leather holster would be nice as a separate item. If Sears sold the holster from the wood-handled version of this knife separately, it would be a great seller, as I've had many professionals asking if we carried them after the nylon wore out. For the average homeowner, this isn't really an issue, but for people using this knife as part of their job, it makes all the difference.

As a basic maintenance tip, give the hinge a little spray of WD-40 every now and then, and move the joint back and forth to work the WD-40 in, to protect it from dirt and moisture.

If you pick up this knife (which usually goes on sale for around $8), you will not be disappointed.

Handy as can be and useful too.

I keep this in a kitchen drawer and use it often. Mainly to open packages delivered by UPS and FEDex. It doesn't take much space in the drawer and the retractable blade makes it safe.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Standard Utility Knife But Needs Better Blade Lock

The knife I received was actually black, not red, but as far as how it performs it's great. I love the textured finish and belt clip. I did have some trouble replacing the blade however, it's simple enough but when it comes to putting the lock down it didn't want to go down all the way on its own, I had to use a hammer to knock it back into place.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GREAT TOOL

I'm on my second one, (only because I lost the first one). Great to carry with you, if it gets dull you just replace the blade, and you are ready to go. Well made tool.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
