The old saying "you get what you pay for" certainly is true when you talk about utility knives. If you get the cheapest, disposable ones, more often than not they are more trouble than they are worth. Save yourself a world of headaches with the 10-189C Self-Retracting Safety Utility Knife from Stanley. Like most utility blades, you push the slide button to extend the blade. Unlike those knives, when you release the slide button, the blade slides back into the handle. When you are cutting cartons, sometimes the blade can snap off and cause an injury. The blade on this knife is held securely between both halves of the patented interlocking nose. It is also a bright orange, in case you misplace it. You will notice an improvement in your work when you ditch the dollar store brands and equip yourself with an excellent Stanley blade.
The 10-189C includes:
- One (1) Stanley 5-5/8" Self-Retracting Utility Knife
- Handle Length: 144mm, 5-5/8"

The other knife retracts on its own inspite of holding the switch making it unreliable while in use.
