    I just picked up one of these after seeing it while browsing for a different knife. I've been carrying one of the Gerber folding razor blade knives at work for a bit now and it is compact and functional but having just half of the blade surface of a box cutter blade at my disposal has been a hindrance at times. This knife sort of bridges the gap between box cutter and proper knife and has been great. The blade is replaceable but substantial enough that it can be resharpened on a stone easily. As a craft knife it is designed for some carving work and seems to do great shaping and shaving wood. I think this would make a good inexpensive compact option for someone wanting a cutting tool for a very compact pocket sized kit.

    I really like that. And by golly I can probably even justify it as a work tool!

    Inexpensive too. I may be able to afford one myself!

    Well, got mine bout a week ago and I like it. Little heavier than I expected, but that comes from the sturdy design. I also like that the blade is fully adjustable from just a point to fully extended. Ain't done much with it cept boxes and mail, but for a ten spot it was worthwhile. Thanks for the heads up young fellar. joe

    Olfa seems to make some quality items. I always like it when I find an item from another field that meets a need in an area of interest to me.

    Neat looking little blade. Will have to add one to my next Amazon order.
