I have tried many other craft knives - they were all hard for me because of grip and "trigger finger tendencies" and it was hard to get a good sight line with old eyes.
But - this craft knife feels like it was made for my hand. I can really hold it and control it. And I can see where the blade actually is so can get an accurate cut.
Retractable pen-style design is easy to grip and I like the tapered barrel. The loop can be tied with ribbon so you can spot the pen quickly in your tote. Or, the loop enables you to hang the pen from a hook in your workspace.
This blade cutter has a soft grip barrel that is very comfortable with a non slip grip. The safety of the retractable blade is great with little ones around and makes a bulky caring case unnecessary when packing for crops.
I love this craft knife, as easy to use as writing with a pen. I love how easy it retracts and the comfort grip is easy on my arthritic hands. Can ct and cut for hours.
As my title says, Tim's knife is just handy to have at my scrapping table. I like it because it is small and retractable and usable with one hand. It's a great little knife. No need to say more!
