I've been a graphic designer for many years, and I've used many, many Exact-o knives. I hate the ones that loosen as you use them; it's so very dangerous. Not only is this one comfortable to hold, it's extremely easy to maneuver and has a firm grip on the blade. This is the second Excel knife I've owned, and I'll never buy another brand. Bonus: Got my daughter one for when she starts design school, too, so she doesn't end up getting something dangerous.
Comfortable handle, love the protective blade cap.
Comfy handle, works great
Easy fit cap, bright color= easy to find
I make these large cardstock characters that require a foam backing to make them stable and easy to handle. It's a chore to cut the foam backing until I found this pink gem. It takes a few minutes and I honestly can't do without my pink knife! Highly recommend it (and I would buy it even if cost more!)
My go-to knife holder--the shape is comfortable, and switching blades is simple. I love Excel. :)
These handles and blades are terrific. Very easy on the hands, and I do a LOT of papercutting so I can honestly say I know what's easy and hard on one's hands! The blades fit well, and the handle is very sturdy. Be careful if you sometimes use Exacto blades, since they are not completely compatible and you'll get some fidgetiness and scraping if you use them a lot. Excel blades are better quality and less expensive, anyway!! ;) Thanks so much, Excel, for being the amazing, homey, and skilled makers that you are! Caps off to you!
Firm grip, super sharp. Had I known about Excel when I started my project, I never would have wasted my money on Xacto.
It’s perfect! Just like the pictures and feels nice to hold, easy to use. The blade is sharp for precise cuts
love the design, comfortable and easy to use. thank you! :)
I've tried other grips before and they tend to wear out quickly, start not to hold the blade, etc. This grip handle is fabulous! Still tight and strong after a lot of use!
Love the grip on this blade. It's no Xacto with a tubular form. Instead, it's contoured to fit your hand and you can get a better grip and control of the blade.
This knife is so comfortable to use on long projects. I've cut with it for hours.
Great quality product as usual from excel!!!
Beautiful knife. Very well made.
The shape of this tool has helped to relieve some of my carpal tunnel symptoms. Also I love how securely it holds a blade. Changing the blade is also much safer. Worth the purchase.
Love these blades, the handles actually. Before I've always used another brand which the blade would always become loose! With these Excel blades, that doesn't happen it stays tight like it should. Thanks Excel, I've found my new cutting tools!
I make cut colored paper collages
So the razor knife is a very important tool. Excel’s knife handle fits my hand very well and because of it’s shape the knife does not roll off the table and stab me in the foot like other brands do. That’s very important.
Great precision and control.
It was a gift for my wife who does hand lettering and she likes the product very much.

fit well in hand. wish it would hold biger blades
This was recommended to me because my wrist was sore which was making it uncomfortable to work on my projects. This knife is really comfortable and helped a lot!
I have used many a knife, and genuinely none has come close to this! Definitely my favourite precision knife: comfortable even after extended use, and the ergonomic shape ensures a smooth result no matter how complex the design.
I have used EXCEL products for many years for carving small items. I find the blades sharper than other brands and the padded handles more to my liking.
