OLFA Heavy Duty Knife Giveaway
We have been nothing but impressed with the Olfa knives we have used. I was never a fan of Breakaway knives before Instagram. The reason was because they were always cheap flimsy junky knives with cheap blades. Because of this great community of giving and taking I learned about Olfa knives and decided to give them a try. We have enjoyed using them for cutting drywall, rope, tile backer, waterproofing membrane, plastic corrugated drain tube etc.
They are real workhorse knives with stainless steel liners, fiberglass reinforced handles and high carbon Japanese steel blades.
This is your chance to try one out.
Please come back and let us know what you think of them after using them on your job and send us your videos of them in the field for a chance to be featured on our page.

I hope I win! But if I don’t, I’ll buy one. I saw they carry them at Home Depot. Looked like it was good quality, and I love trying out new tools. I currently use an old Lennox that I’ve had since I was 15. Bought it when I first started in the trades and I’m now 28. I do wish Home Depot still carried the Lenox gold blades.
I have a box of cheapo breakaways. I use them when i need to make fine cuts but never trusted them where any kind of pressure was involved, primarily because the handles are garbage and feel like they could gove at any moment. Interested to try one of these out.
Excellent review! I always thought these knives were convenient in design but too flimsy for actual use. After reading up on the olfa I’m really hoping to win one but if not would consider buying one to check out
Wow! Those look like a total upgrade from the Orange breakaways we used to have. By breakaway I mean the whole thing would breakaway even the housing. OLFA Heavy Duty Knives seem like they would be a prized possession like the rest of my tools…
Good write up about the OLFA knives. I agree with you about the old breakaway knives being cheap junk! I honestly felt like they were unsafe to use being so flimsy. I look forward to trying an OLFA and seeing how sturdy they are. Thanks for putting on the giveaway! I’m sure the knives will speak for themselves and at least 300 people will become buyers.
Somehow Olfa sent me a knife a month ago, and it’s amazing. I use mini breakaway knives for painting. I have 4 that I put new blades in. After using the New Old HD. I would have no reason to use the old knives, except I bought the wrong blades from Sherwin Williams, so now I have to keep the old knives around. Lol. The new HD knife is super comfy, and it’s easy to pull out of side pants carpenter pockets instead of digging around for the tiny knifes. These are low level life changing!
