    I like the Olfas myself but that is also what I am used to.

    They use their own blades but they are very nicely made.

    Olfa. I use either the slim metal one pictured above or a very compact black one with a single sturdy slide out blade. You screw these down to lock it.

    Stat Gear has a round keychain xacto knife which unscrewed from the key ring. I purchased mine through KickStarter.

    A Christy knife is a good choice.

    Olfa have 3 variants of their stainless steel retractable cutters for their 9mm blades. The SVR-1 is the original, the SVR-2 improved the tip and introduced an auto locking mechanism of sorts. These accepted regular 9mm blades, stainless steel blades or black carbon steel blades. SAC-1 kept none of these changes but a allowed for blades with a more acute angel (30 degrees) specially made for crafting.

    If you want a heavier blade go for the CK1 or CK-2 (also known as the 26B and the 34B) , if you want a finer blade you have their designers knives (216) and art knives (several models but the 157b takes x-acto type blades)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Xacto is now making 2 or 3 retractable models.
