thnx quartrsawn, I looked into that and couldn’t find it, all I found was blades? It’s a shame I bought two from Lowes and one disappeared with one of my employees, and the other one just broke!! It’s a great utility knife for ur average contractor!

As far as I’m concerned the Stanley fat max is all you’ll ever need. Tool free blade change, hold 5 extra blades. If you have a costco membership you can get a 25’ and 16’ tape with a utility knife for $20. Great deal considering the 25’ tape sells for that much at Home Depot and is also one of the better tapes available.

I thought it looked like a Red Devil also as I had a couple a long time ago. Single Blade that you could take out and insert it for use as a Scraper?

I stopped using the Single Blades a while back. Now I use the Razor Knife that you just snap off a 1/2” or so when it gets Dull, and good to go in 2 Seconds. When you run out of Blades to Snap, a new one slides in quickly and they are inexpensive by the Dozen or so.

By the way zuk, your Comments somehow got into the “Tag” section….LOL…

Bought it at lowes and they were also selling screw drivers, I’ve looked on the red devil site and can’t find it. Red devil does sound right, I guess maybe they don’t make them anymore? Bummer!

Stahlman Lumber in Houston is selling a utility knife with a similar shape – there is a +/- 40-degree bend in the handle. I like mine so much I bought 2 extra. The other thing I like is that the two sides hook together in front and are held together in back with a spring-loaded end cap, so opening it up to change a blade takes about 3 seconds. I haven’t seen these other places. I’ll have to check on the manufacturer’s name when I’m home after work. It is something like “Luntz”, but googling that didn’t help me find it.

A few more attempts with Google and I found it – Lutz #357 utility knife:

Thanks Greg the Lutz blades look nice and sturdy, I emailed Red Devil with the pic so maybe I’ll have some luck with that. I’m gonna try to find a place I can order one from Lutz, they look well built. I bought a Fat Max double blade one, but I’m not a big fan of the quick change blades, especially the ones u push a button to change every time I got one and used it for aggressive cutting like scoring cement board the blades always come out. Don’t like the standard what I call old fashioned straight blades like the ergo ones.
Thanks again.
