ROSEMONT, Ill., 2019 – The most-used tool in the toolbox just became one of the toughest. Introducing the new OLFA MXP-L and MXP-AL Die-Cast Aluminum Utility Knives, specifically designed from one uniform piece of durable aluminum. The die-cast handles add a level of precision to the design that increases both user comfort and the knives’ rugged durability.

Covering the stainless steel blade channel, the die-cast aluminum knife handles feature an anti-slip grip that wraps around the back of the tool. The knives come in two variations. The MXP-L features OLFA’s classic ratchet locking mechanism, with an oversized design for greater control. It’s designed as a single piece of metal, pressure-formed for durability.

The MXP-AL features an oversized auto-locking mechanism that slides to the perfect length and stays put. Its ultra-slim profile doesn’t interfere with the grip, making it comfortable to hold in the hand. Both knives also feature a tethering hole at the end of the tool, so securing it is easy.

“The aluminum die-cast bodies of the MXP-L and MXP-AL bring a new level of lightweight durability to our lineup,” said OLFA Brand Manager Cassie Donnelly. “The oversized grip fits comfortably in your hand and the rubber wrap-around grip helps wick moisture away from the handle and maintain control of the knife. Plus, their all-metal design makes them more durable than ever before.”

Both knives feature the OLFA Ultra-Sharp Black Premium blades, which are double-honed to be 25 percent sharper than standard silver blades. This precise angle and initial sharpness delivers a super clean and smooth cut for almost any application. Plus, each blade comes with eight snap-off edges, so the knife is always sharp. Each new cutting edge is quickly accessible without a user ever having to fumble with a blade change: Simply snap off the blade for a fresh cutting edge. Changing out full blades is always quick, easy and tool free.

OLFA MXP-L and MXP-AL Die-Cast Aluminum Utility Knives are available now.
