Customer Reviews

Nice knife but the blade snap tool is useless and not the safest according to Olfa!Over all very nice knife. The so-called end cap blade snapping tool does not break the blade along the scored line. As a testament to how useless it is, the Olfa website recommends using pliers to break off blade segments! Quoting from the Olfa website: 'the safest and most technically correct way to snap a blade is to either use a pair of pliers or a blade disposal system'! Since they apparently advise against using their own blade snapping feature, I deducted 1 star for useless feature. 4This Works Great For MeI ordered it to cut very sturdy lawn edging strips after hearing they were difficult to cut. With this, I scored it once and cut right through with no effort at all. Now, I cut anything needing cutting with it. I just cut through some carpet samples to stick in the pantry. I even used this to cut (with a bit of time wasting effort since it wasn't necessary) a piece off the wood molding on the floor to get a rug to fit in the pantry. It's great to cut things like screening, etc. I love it. 5An excellent cutter.I love these knives. They are comfortable to hold & they are non-slip. They will fit in your pocket easily (no pocket clip). The blade is extremely easy to extend and retract. The blade can be retracted completely into the handle for safe handling. The blades are fairly easy to replace (no screwdriver needed). When the tip becomes dull, you can simply snap the tip off (be careful of flying metal). The refill blades are fairly inexpensive. BTW: the black blades are MUCH better than the silver blades. I've used both. The black blades are extremely sharp and strong. 5The best breakaway money can buyI have nothing negative to say. This knife is practically perfect in every way. I believe this is the smallest blade that OLFA offers. But there is no downside from what I can tell. The blade does not accidentaly break away. But when you want to break away a dull portion it's a snap! (See what I did there? Snap...Breakaway? Oh God, I've turned into a dad joke maker).Handle is comfortable even for extended usage.But what sets this apart is the sharpness of the blade. It is so sharp it's like... I can't seem to come up with a dad joke here. But it is really, really, really sharp! 5Best knife everI like everything about this knife. It cuts beautifully and it easily follows a straightedge. The molded fiberglass body has a wonderfully comfortable feel in your hand, better than any of the other little knives. It's bold yellow and black color allows you to see it amongst other things in a crowded pencil cup. Super sharp blade that you just snap off to renew (Mr. Olfa invented the snap off blade). I've bought all the look-a-likes and thrown them away. I have 5 of these spread around my home, workshop, car ... everywhere. These are hard to find - And Amazon has a much better price than the art stores. If you could have only one knife, this is it. 5Great deal.Incredibly sharp. One of my most used tools in my clinician pouch. Super sharp, comfortable handle without over the top designs.Most other 9mm snap tip box blades I have used are cheap plastic $1 store grab bag items. Its taken a while to find one that is very high quality.Only two drawbacks...1) The high carbon blade is very sharp, but rusts very easily. After casting in the clinic, I will cut the fiberglass with this with ease, but the blade will start to form a layer of rust on the edge a few hours later, just from the moisture in the cast.2) If you aren't careful, the blade perforations will snap easier than expected, shortening the lifetime of the blade. 5Fantastic! Lightweight & very sharpThis changed everything for me! I have bad arthritis in my hands & they don't work very well. Trying to use scissors to open boxes & packages hurt & was very frustrating & time consuming. This easily cuts through boxes, plastic bags, sealing wrap on bottles & packages, etc. No more fighting to open items & it's light enough that I can easily use it. I love the idea that you just break off the blade when it gets full & you've got a sharp blade again. Best box cutter & all around cutting tool I've ever owned. 5I cut standard brown corrugated cardboard and also some finer white cardboardThis review is for several OLFA knives. They all seem similar so I ordered one of each and compare them here:* 500/1580 (Old School)* XA-1 (this one)* ES-1/P 1115501* SVR-2All knives feature a narrow slot in their removable end cap/pocket clip to snap off the blade ends, and use the 9mm blade refill, Silver (standard) or Black (extra-sharp).I cut standard brown corrugated cardboard and also some finer white cardboard. I also used some plastic from those horrible anti-theft retail packages. Surprisingly to me, this was not a difficult test for any knife.The brown corrugated cardboard cut in half fully through in two passes. One pass is possible with much more pressure but it's a safer with two passes.* 580/5001Old school styleMy wife has a decades-old knife of this style from school days. The old knife with a new blade cuts cardboard easily with the grain and against it.New knife (this model) and thus new blade, cuts just the same as the old one. Of course the ratcheting or clicking slide action is somewhat stiffer than the decades-old knife.Both knives cut through the plastic difficult-to-open plastic packaging with no problem and I felt safe doing it. I never felt the blade was going to move within the knife handle.* XA-1Says it has a Comfort Grip. Mine arrived with a Black blade, the super sharp one. The differences between the Silver and Black are not obvious to me, but after cutting more brown corrugated cardboard with different force and direction (with or against the grain) the Black blades are noticeably sharper, just not a lot. Black refill 10-pack is $11.19, Silver 10-pack $6.83.Is the handle more comfortable than other models? Actually, yes it is, but not because of the handle material. It's because the handle is a little fatter make it more comfortable to hold. I found I preferred holding this one rather than the old style.Its sliding/clicking action was easy but never loose. Going back to the plastic material it easily cut through with a couple of passes, or one pass with careful force. Again I had full confidence the slide was secure.* ES-1/P 1115501This is the only model reviewed that came in a simple retail plastic wrapper, no cardboard backing. But the implied cheapness of the retail package doesn't carry through to the knife. It cut cardboard and plastic just as the other knives. Its all-plastic handle and slide were a little bigger than the old-school 580/5001, so it was easier to hold...approaching the comfort of the XA-1. Its slide/clicking action was easy but never felt it would slip. Another fine OLFA knife.* SVR-2Advertised as stainless steel and rust resistant, the package also says it's for cutting vinyl, wallpaper, and film. There's a hint it's not meant for anything heavier...something I agree with. Lacking the plastic end cap, the metal end of the handle rests in the palm of the cutting hand. While the metal end has no sharp edges it is not comfortable and I was unwilling to grip it has hard as I did the other knives while cutting. Because the handle has no taper it is also the narrowest handle, another disadvantage.If it really is rust resistant compared to the others its advantage would be in damp environments. Otherwise I see no reason to prefer this over the others and I will not buy more of these.ConclusionMy new favorite is this model, the XA-1. The fatter handle is more comfortable, allowing one to grip and control it a bit more. But a close second is the ES-1/P 1115501. Either one cuts great and their somewhat bigger handles are more comfortable for this older guy. 5Look No FurtherI bought a couple of these and they just arrived. They are by far the best quality utility knives I have come across. In the past I've had cheap little plastic ones, but these, for a little extra money, are far superior in quality. The grip is nice and the action of moving the blade is very precise. The blade moves nicely and locks firmly in place and then retracts just as smoothly. It's a tiny little thing that gets used only on occasion (mostly to open boxes from Amazon), but it's so rare to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of an inexpensive product that I just had to give it a review. 5 stars all the way. A little more expensive than the cheapies, but in this case you get more than what you pay for. I'm ordering more to give to friends - who think I'm nuts to be excited about a $6 utility knife. 5I came across this looking for something better and I gotta say this is a life saverI've been using a utility knife to cut foam core boards for a project which wear out after a couple small cuts causing the foam to tear resulting in ugly edges. I would swap blades every couple passes.I came across this looking for something better and I gotta say this is a life saver. I still haven't had to break off a blade yet as it is retaining it's sharpness so we'll. With all the cutting I have done i would have used 10 utility blades by now, yet this initial blade is still flawlessly working. Will buy again... assuming these even start to dull eventually. 5
