Not all plastic utility knives are created equal - some are heavyweight and will work just fine. This one does not meet that criteria. It is extremely lightweight (which is not a good thing when it comes to cutting utensils) and is difficult to assemble. The plastic button that keeps the blade snug inside the knife also creates problems when assembling. It took several attempts to get the knife fully assembled without the blade shaving plastic from the inside cover. Once correctly installed, the blade still does not move smoothly like in other, higher quality knives. The whole thing just feels cheap. I recommend the Stanley metal utility knife if you want something basic (item #550467).

Rated 5 out of 5�by Ray The BEST and SAFEST
The blade's unique notched design eliminates the blade slipping and drifting in the knife track like the other styles do. This reduces the rick of injury. Nothing better. Some complain that the blade retractor button is "cheap" but we have found that it is actually durable and a non-factor in day to day use. Besides, we bought it for the notched blade. X-Acto does it again!

While this will get the job done, the handle is a very lightweight plastic and doesn't feel very substantial. It should do well for lightweight jobs such as opening boxes.
It comes with 1 blade, stored inside the handle.

This piece of garbage doesn't even come with a blade. It is only the plastic handle. Description reads like it is the complete knife but is only handle.
