Best price I could find for a very well reviewed folding utility knife from a good brand (and which explicitly includes a blade).

It's slightly cheaper at Powertoolmate (https://www.powertoolmate.co.uk/Products/NewProducts/EB%252FMIL48221903) but it doesn't state if it comes with a blade or not. Powertoolmate also sell through ebay and those ones don't include a blade so I didn't want to risk buying directly from them.

Here's one Youtube review but there are lots of others.

Why would you pay that much for a utility knife?No way worth that amount.


Because it's very good. Steady and well-balanced. You'll never be able to go back to poundland ones after having one. Buy decent blades too, I've stuck with Milwaukee's own, as the cut is far sharper than inferior brands.

Ox Pro is also good from Toolstation at £7.15: toolstation.com/sho…888

It comes with 2 blades which are stored in the handle.

Did anyone else see this as a deal for a Maltesers knife?

(Time to go to specsavers probably )
This company use DPD parcel delivery. They are a massive headache. I have had numerous phone calls with them about lost parcels. I live in Waldegrave Close, my stuff seems to go to Waldegrave way. Then DPD tell me they delivered my parcel to my home but their GPS says 140 yards away. Apparently I sign for things at my home during the day, while I am out at work in Colchester?

I wouldn't use any company that delivers with DPD, would you?

If you want angry 30 mins phone calls. Get told by DPD main office to phone round their depots and see if anyone has your parcel, then great. As they often never know where my stuff has gone. Still FFX save a pound on each delivery?

One delivery was brilliant. Spent near an hour on the phone chasing a parcel, went out for dinner with my girlfriend. They'd said they didn't know where it was. Came home to find my Makita stuff sat in the middle of our drive, no paperwork, nothing. I was lucky it was there when I came home?

I think the police were nearly called regarding that parcel. DPD said to me, don't call the police, then as I say, somehow it turned up that night

Its a utility knife enough said.
No skill or balance involved.

I must be very lucky I use nextday coffee/technomate etc for stuff and they use dpd and never an issue.
Always get text updates and always good.
Must just be lucky.

Horses for courses I guess. For me, I’d say our regular DPD delivery man is really good
I suppose with any courier company, it depends who "your guy" is, or your area. No problems with DPD, Hermes are brilliant to my Glaswegian address, though sending to the Highlands is a flippin' nightmare.

So sorry to hear your story.

To me, DPD is my number one choices compare to Hermes, yodel, post office, amazon etc. DPD would send a notify email the night before delivery, then a update email with the time frame on that morning. They always come within their said time frame (the only company or arrow XL would do such)

I never have problem with DPD delivery and their delivery people are always friendly and helpful. Parcels in good conditions. However I haven't try change delivery etc so I could not comment about it.
Text maybe never had an email update.

Doesn't matter how much you spend on a utility knife , steadiness and balance is achieved by your own hand surely?, Agree on decent blades though that's what matters more.
This version with the spare blades is stupidly thick. The one without is much nicer balanced in my opinion. I have both.

Like all delivery companies, they're only as good as the drivers in your area, in my area DPD are by far the best delivery company.
Sharp deal!
Nothing special .
Cold from me. I’ve used a variety of utility knives over the years, including this one, and it’s quite low on my preferred list. It’s clunky but uncomfortable to use for extended periods.

If I need a knife for small jobs the one that lives in my kit is a small folding B&Q jobby, for longer jobs I use a non-folding screwfix-branded knife as it’s much nicer to use for extended periods. Comfort, weight/size (if you have to lug your tool bag around) and price are the only real things to consider for a knife like this and this knife fails on all of the above.

Pair a cheaper knife with decent blades (I like Irwin blades) and you’ll be better off.

Courier services are really area specific regarding how good they are, along with the drivers.

I have the best possible service from DPD so would disagree with you, I hate Hermes and Yodel in my area they are constantly putting things in my bins or throwing it in the garden
I have this knife it is simply superior to all other knifes forget Stanley. Worth every penny.

I am still not convinced in ordering. Last time DPD lost my parcel in the depot, forcing me to cancel a plumber who wasn't happy. I ended up paying a revised price for his work. The time before that I said I was going to call the police. Then my girlfriend came home an hour later to find my expensive parcel sat on the drive.
