Which Utility Knife Blade Is Best? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 16 December 2019
  • Utility blade knife sharpness test: blade edge integrity and frictional loss using cardboard, drywall, copper pipe and staple. Stanley, Stanley carbide, DeWalt Carbide, Milwaukee, Masterforce, Craftsman, Lenox, Husky, Kobalt, Hyper Tough, and Irwin tested. I highly recommend 2 blades, one for value and the other stands out as the best but it does cost the most.

    Thanks for the in depth and very real world style testing. I've used numerous different blades over the last several years as a general contractor / remodeler, and every test you carried out is pretty much a carbon copy of what my utility knife gets put through on a day to day basis, including the occasional run in with hidden staples, nails & screws which tend to dull the basic "Budget Level" steel blades almost instantly.After getting a chance to sample a few of Dewalt's carbide blades a co-worker gave me while I was cutting & installing all new drywall during a large kitchen remodel project, I was amazed at just how much longer a carbide blade stayed sharp & cut cleanly, compared to even the best name brand steel blades I'd been using up to that point. 3 blades ended up lasting me almost 3 weeks under heavy use, realistically about 3-5x longer than I was used to. After researching & comparing prices I bought a 50 pack of Stanley Fat Max Carbides, and now over a year later, I'm not even halfway through the pack!! Thanks for all your great content & keep up the hard work. People seeking accurate answers to challenging questions, greatly appreciate real results, based on real-world testing. Clearly, there's a reason you've already earned yourself over a million subscribers to your channel in just 3 years!! Congrats & You just earned another one👍👍👍

    This stuff is incredible. As a tradesman and a tool whore these are my favorite types of videos. Here’s an idea I’d love someone to do;A real, in depth linesman plier showdownAt Klein’s facility they have a test table set up with the major linesman pliers brands including theirs. They ask you to line up and one by one cut ceiling wire with each of the pliers. Supposedly Klein’s ability to absorb shock is the best., I’d love to see some lesser known brands thrown in the mix due to my own curiosity. Brands like Fujiya of Japan, as their selection really intrigued me. NWS, German, and FELO. Also Vampliers since everyone’s got their nuts in a twist about em, I personally think they’re goofy. But those two brands against Knipex, Klein, etc. thanks again for taking the time my man.

    I've owned a small remodeling company for the past 18 years and have tried just about all of the brands you tested. It was cool to see you come to the same conclusion that my business partner and I have. We've found Dewalt Carbide to be the best and while they're more expensive it's well worth it in the long run.

    Thanks for all the tests! Quick question, early in this video you had the Stanley Carbide at 42 cents (https://youtu.be/711IWHCljVk?t=171), and later you say 59 cents (https://youtu.be/711IWHCljVk?t=618) mistake or some other reason?

    Thank you ! A good video ! I've been wondering if its worth the additional cost to go with the premium blades or keep using Stanley.But ,thanks to your tests ,I'll stick with the regular Stanley . Unless I find a good deal on some of the carbide blades.
