Welcome. I’ll alert the owner so he can look into this.

Welcome aboard. Since my best buddy for many years was named Magnus, I'll definitely be having a look at your wares.

I must shamefully admit we don't have any left-handers available right now Kevin - but hopefully soon when we do another run.

That's almost too much of a coincidence ...the stars and planets have obviously aligned. 😄

Boo, this is clearly bigotry against the Left Hand Master Race

I've tried a bunch of similar, small titanium box cutters (mostly Chinese ones, but also a BigIDesign), and Magnus' is beyond superior, so much so that the others are simply badly designed crap that either have too many parts, don't lock securely, or dull the blades (or all of the above). Granted, I haven't tried them all. And I've read great things about Chaves' CHUB, but his is more of a pocket knife replacement rather than something you can slip in your coin pocket or on your keychain.

Kevin, if you want, I can loan you a regular right-hand one to try out. You might even find that you like the right-handed one more because of the way your thumb would naturally sit on the slider (whereas on the opposite hand your thumb naturally rests on the flat).

Thank you for the feedback on the SlideClick - great to hear it's working well! I hear something along these lines of what you said quite a lot about this utility knife ...which is pretty cool because secure-locking, one-hand action, minimal parts and simple blade-replacement were things I was aiming for when I designed it. :cool:

I appreciate it but I'll wait until more are made, thanks!

Also M Magnus Knives have you considered adding an additional stop or two onto the box cutter so the full blade doesn't have to be extended?
