Spotlight Review

"Pretty descent"
vitali_tkachenka (Lawrenceville, GA)
Pretty descent knife for the money, good for starting, but for more precise work more solid knife with interchangeable blades will be way better.

"Standard Knife Necessary"
Sauceman (Asheville, NC)
This is the standard knife at hobby shops across the U.S. I just bough my third, as its necessary and useful. If you want a model to look good, you need a knife to cut from the sprue. This is the cheapest, and won't dull for several months of daily usage.

"sharp endurance"
Honestly, I amazed at how long this blade lasts for the money. This blade has stayed sharp through 5 models, scraping seems, flash, decals, trimming miss-fit parts. Seems it has lasted longer then my Xacto or Excel blades

"Just get an X-Acto or Model Master blade"
Shane S. (Dallas, Tx)
For what this is, It'll work ok. I bought one way back in the day. But you can spend just a few dollars more and get either an X-Acto or even a Testors Model Master knife that not only has a far better constructed gripping surface but allows you to change out the blades. So your first pack of replacement blades will pay for the whole setup over the cost of replacing these plastic handled knives each time.


Bending blade and/or knife handle may cause knife to break.
