I was excited about this...

I was excited about this product, but it doesn't function particularly well.
Safety: Nearly hidden ceramic blade - you'd have to try incredible hard to cut
yourself making it far safer than a traditional exacto. Plus, the pen cap is
secure, so it likely won't accidentally open in your bag.
Convenience: This is easy to keep on your person, in a pocket, in a school bag,
Direction change: With an exacto, it can be difficult to quickly change the
angle or direction of your cut. That's not a problem with this blade.
Pressure: You have to push very hard to get the blade to cut. It nearly always
doesn't cut through on the first pass.
Tiny blade, but wide blade holder: The plastic housing for the ceramic blade
makes it very difficult to anticipate where you will actually be cutting, so
it's tricky for precise cuts.
Plastic dents: I have to push so hard to get a get that the plastic housing ends
up denting the paper while I'm trying to cut with it.
Overall, I would NOT purchase this product again despite having high hopes for
