Irwin ProTouch X Retractable Knife
Do not buy
This knife is so badly designed. When you realise, against all logic, that you need a Philips screwdriver to place the blade, the blade retainer jumps out with its spring and hinge bar. These then need incredible dexterity to replace.
Yes. You only got one blade, when there were supposed to be three, but this is a very very expensive disposable knife. You will never use it again.

Not fit for purpose
Useless. There should have been three blades included - there is only one. Fitting the blade is impossible. I returned it straight away and had a refund.
I bought this because Irwin is a good reputable make and I was very disappointed.
Screwfix should stop selling it.

I am amazed that you have to undo 2 small Philips screws to change the blade what a fiddly job would not recommend

Knife is ok but no better than many others available. Promotional material said that it is supplied with three blades... it isn't.
