    that's what I would call it. but that may not be correct. those smaller ones have too flimsy of blades for my liking, not as much control.

    Technicaly, no thats whats called a box cutter or razor knife among other names

    this is an xacto knife - http://www.hobbyplace.com/tools/xacsets.html

    all depends on what your lookin to do with it, as both basically can be used to do like things as far as cutting and or scraping.

    But if your lookin to make the part that goes on top of the jet pack ( which some people do by using a piece of an exacto handle) then the link is whats used, also can be used to make a piece for the shin tools.

    I just don't know why your asking and what your lookin to do with it...

    hope that somewhere within my post is the answer your lookin for

    Hobby shops, Lowes, Home Depot. Places like that. They usually run between $2-$4 depending on brand and store.
