Very precise, razor sharp blade – Precision Knife with Spare Blade Reviews

posted by Tom-Z on 05/28/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Sharp, it easily cuts through paper, tape, thin plastics, vinyl, etc...
- Precise
- The handle really is metal, and it is nicely balanced
- It is slightly textured for a better grip
- It indeed comes with two spare blades instead of one, which equals three blades!
Cons:
- The plastic cap on mine was damaged fairly quick. Nothing major, just some scratches.
- It is extremely dangerous. This will slice almost anything, including you, live electrical wires or anything that gets into its path.
- The tip of the blade can chip off, which might be an disadvantage (or maybe it is due to me dropping the thing on the floor point down, but someone else also mentioned it)
- The way the blade is secured to the handle feels slightly flimsy, but when tightened enough, it's perfectly OK.
Other:
I use this for cutting stickers out of self adhesive vinyl sheets. It's fairly accurate and razor sharp.
Bottomline:
Get this if you want a blade that is razor sharp and precise. It's great!
