YBLTV Review: Stanley FatMax Retractable Utility Knife

The Stanley FatMax is an excellent utility knife for any size job. Its ergo-dynamic design promotes comfort, practicality, and safety. The handle has a rubber underbelly that provides comfort and traction while its convex shape allows it to fit easily into you hand. The utility knife’s overall curved shape allows you to apply more pressure with less effort which allows for more intricate cutting and a safer experience . The nose of the utility knife has rubber guards to prevent unnecessary scratching to the surface your working on.

Blade removal and installation is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Slide the blade lock switch to the unlock position, then push in the black button on the other side,and simply pull out or slide in the blade.  All of this can be done without setting the blade down.

It’s blade adjustment mechanism is conveniently located on top where your thumb naturally sits and allows for seamless adjustment through its five blade depth settings. It also has a safety feature that prevents the blade from moving unless you push down on the slider.

Another great feature is that this utility blade has room for 5 extra blades. To access the extra blade storage, simply press in the red unlock button and separate the handle. This feature promotes convenience along with safety because many injuries happen because of using a dull blade.

It also has a slot at the base of the handle for attaching a strap.
