Thats lame Good thing you got it changedI also have the blue one on the bottom of the second pic. Mine is branded Sheffield
As with most types of edged tools,the lowly box cutter has also come into my accumulation in many designs.Some are designed for multiple uses such as scraping. It wasn't until many years after I started using a standard box cutter did I realize that in most of them you can take out the blade and turn it 90 degrees to use as a scraper. The only down side I see to replaceable blade utility knives is that most of them use blades that will only fit that particular knife.Many of the early ones used single edge razor blades of the standard type. There were also many types of single edge razor blades when safety razors started to replace straight razors but that is another story...... So without further ado I will post up a few of mine and try to give info about them.#1 Armstrong Notched Blade Knife.Cast iron housing.Still looking for extra blades.#2 Box cutter promotional item from Swift's Cleansers.Uses a single edge razor blade.#3 Conrad box cutter uses a single edge razor blade.Has a ruler built in to the top edge.#4 A modern Craftsman folding utility knife with wood handles and highly polished with removeable blade guard.#3
Ray, I was a flooring installer for 33 years. The Armstrong knife you have has been replaced by a plastic angled model. At one time they made an angled straight blade for it that ship has sailed. If I remember right the notched blades for the new knife fit yours. When pattern cutting sheet vinyl flooring you cut halfway through the flooring and undercut the backing with a notched knife like yours. Mostly used with inlayed hard goods but can be used with any vinyl flooring. Most wholesale flooring supplys should stock Armstrong blades.
I bought a Gerber folding utility knife from Amazon just got it today feels real good in my hand. Walmart sell them with orange handles for under eight dollars when you can find them in stock. (Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
AimlessWandererCan you compare the EAB and EAB lite in terms of ergos? I've seen tons of reviews. Now I know that I need one. But the thing is that I like the liiks of the plane jane EAB more. But at the same time EAB lite is an improved version and should be better. Just don't like that coffin shape Alex
I appreciate having a box cutter at hand, or any kind of cheap and easily replaceable blade on me, including utility knives and scalpels!
