  • Good X-Acto Handle A clone

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Build quality is good, maybe a bit too light. Threads are smooth. Well finished. 100% metal, including the blade holder. Blade is thick and solid. Blade holder grips blade very firmly.

    Cons:

    None really. What can go wrong with such a simple tool? Edges are a tiny bit too sharp. Knurling could cover a bit more of the handle.

    OtherThoughts:

    It came with a #11 blade (tapered) not the one shown in the pictures. No extra blades.
    Be very carefull taking off the cover, fingers can easily slip towards the edge.

    Bottomline:

    All in all, a good X-Acto Handle A (slim one) clone for 1/3 the genuine item (including shipping). I'd have liked the blade shown in the pictures (#14 I believe) because I have a lot of #11 ones.
