As an apprentice electrician and active construction worker, a good razor blade is mandatory and this utility knife is the one for the job. Able to strip wire and cut easily, it does its job, all while being angled to put less strain on the wrist. It is slightly thicker than most utility knives and it is more difficult to change the blade than most, but it is overall amazing.

Instructions - load blade??

Loading the blade is very difficult and there are no instructionsg covering this important necessary item. Could lead easily to accidents.

      Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

      This is a more durable and comfortable utility knife than most others I own.
      It's convenient to use with the blade compartment in the top/back end of the tool. Press the red button and lift the black cover at the end nearest the button.
      To replace the blade, just extend it all the way using the typical knob for that purpose on top and, with the blade to the left, push the black button near the blade while gently but firmly pulling on the blade. It slides out easily

          Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

          I'm usually quite pleased with Stanley tools; they're usually well made, work well, and econonical. So the poor design and lack of instructions with this product is both surprising and disappointing.

          At first glance, I liked the knife's angled handle and and the in-handle blade storage.

          Unfortunately, the loading of the blades is not obvious and the instructions for it are virtually nonexistent (what little there is poorly written and unclear). Once I was able to load the blade (thanks to a search on the web I found a contractor who had figured it out -- he found the instructions just as poorly written and cryptic as I did), the slider to extend and retract the blade did not work. I'm sure with a bit more time I'd get it to work, but at this point I'm taking it back the store I bought it from.

            Had to visit this site to learn how to change a blade as the instructions on the package are poorly explained. But thanks to Tollnut from Silver Springs I figured it out. I'll recommend it with hesitation.

            I have used many utility knives over the years and have never had a problem changing blades on any until this one. I cannot get the blade changed, nor can I find instructions on how to do it. I plan to throw this cutter out and get a different one. Don't bother with this knife, it is not worth the frustration!

              Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

              Those having trouble loading or changing blades probably should not be around sharp objects of any kind. The blade storage compartment easily allows blades to be dispensed, and changing/inserting a new blade involves simply pushing and holding the release button while sliding the blade into place. This is clearly described on the packaging. A good tool.

              Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

              I agree with the reviewer "Joe the Toolman". What should be an easy to use tool has turned inconvenient and/or impossible to use. I believe the design intent is for someone to able to have the blades push out, one after another, but I wasn't able to load the blades.It may be a great tool, but there are no instructions to show you, and it is ambiguous.

                We usually like Stanley products-- NOT THIS ONE! They took an inexpensive, easy to use product and ruined it. Hard to replace blades--- AND, YOU HAVE TO BUY A SPECIALTY TOOL JUST TO GET IT OPEN!! What a headache!
