This knife has a snap off blade that allows quick replacement of the sharp edge. The blade is scored, so that when the cutting point of the blade dulls, it is easy to use the tool that stores in the handle to break off the dulled piece. Then you have a fresh point for precise cutting. Often called for in bookbinding workshop supply lists. (Also called a break-off knife.)
