  • XACTO knife

    my 40 yr old knife quit (threads for the blade holder wore out) so I picked up a new one.

    what a piece of junk! the nut wont stay tight to keep the blade in place...........

    another company with quality control`s sad what is being produced for the consumer.

      Never used one. I've got two or three sliding blade utility knives around I use. You might find an original used on on eBay.

        Wonder if you could find a higher quality unit at a hobby store? Shouldn't have come to this but it's sadly all about price with most people and the manufacturers have responded accordingly.
