Small issue
Michael B. on Jun 23, 2021

Okay I really like this blade, it’s going to be a beater, my edc box cutter for work, so replaceable blades is a plus(although I do wish it was at least compatible with your standard razor blade.) This was the only option as far as what I wanted, retractable, pocket clip, titanium and not too minimal, well it wasn’t but I refuse to pay $185 for the Chaves Chub. I will say my only complaint is the retractable mechanism needs some refinement, the spring itself is just cheap for what you’re paying. I think a magnetic based system would work far better and be a much smoother experience, it’s not terrible but it’s not up to the standards that I'm used to WE providing. If there was an updated version, I’d like to see a better retractable mechanism, and potentially have a universal/standard utility blade option, because the blades that come with it are a bit long and overkill for what I need them to do. But it is nice that they included extra blades and a nice Damascus Show Piece blade.

Great Secondary
Joe G. on Aug 29, 2020

I wanted this primarily as a secondary knife to open packages and the like. Much more attractive and easier to carry than a box cutter. This keeps my primary blade sharper longer and avoids any unnecessary damage to it. That will make this a bit niche as a product as you could just buy a series of “beater” knives. I would guess most knife people would intuit the use case for it. It is nicely built. Slides open well. Replaceable blades are nice. The only real issue is the non-standard replaceables could be a future irritation. I figure the three extras should last about a year and generally I lose or destroy beater knives in that timeframe. So depends on your use and preference. If you just want a shop box cutter backup then get a folding box cutter and 50 blades for much less. But if you want a little style this is a great choice.
