Self-Retracting 6 In Safety Knife, 1 EA is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should make it clear: you can't lock it. I suppose to some people, a craft knife that won't lock in place is something they've been looking for. But the card should make it clear that that's what you're getting - maybe an illustration showing how the blade pops back in when you raise your thumb. Now I have to take it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits warehouse needs well This knife fits my needs perfectly. It is a self retracting knife so there is no reason that it should lock out. Thanks for building a great knife Irwin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from safety knife I have purchased several safety knives lately for a shipping job, and this one I like, it feels good in my hand. The thumb screw is nice it's an all metal construction and of course there is little chance you will put the exposed blade into your pocket

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Who wants a knife that doesn't lock? I bought this recently because I loved the finger tightening screw that holds the handle together. One problem! The blade doesn't lock! I took it back because who can do work with a utility knife when the blade doesn't remain out except by constant thumb pressure? Put a locking mechanism on the blade and this would be a beautiful tool.
