OLFA 18mm Ratchet-Lock Heavy-Duty Utility Knife

Price: 9.95

OLFA’s 18mm ratchet-lock utility knife is used to cut heavy gauge linoleum, drywall, carpeting, and other tough materials throughout the job site. Featuring a unique ratchet locking system, this fixed-handle utility knife allows for a one-handed use and provides custom depth settings. Each blade is double honed to allow for superior sharpness and longevity. Preloaded with snap-off blade. While it looks about as basic as utility knives come, OFLA’s three blade refill options makes this anything but run-of-the-mill. OFLA is a Japanese company; founder Yoshio Okada is credited with inventing the first ever snap-off blade.

Product Reviews

  • "The OLFA 5003 L-1 boasts a carbon steel blade that has superior durability, which prevents dullness and will also prevent you from having to change the blade very often." –                                                                                                                                                                                   
  • "It is poetic in its simplicity using carbon-steel blades mounted into a stainless steel body that is meant for punishment. If you aren’t slicing up block of wood or cutting acetates down to size, this is probably going to be overkill, but the price is still right. Truly the burly man’s blade." –
