looks like the slider control on a stanley knife (not sure what you call them in the US!)...the bit that as you slide along pushes out the blade on the knife and brings it back in when you slide it back the other way

I would have to agree. We call them utility knives or box knives in the US.

yeah, we call them "Stanley" nives purely becasue that was the main company that used to make them..

a bit like "hoover" for vacuum cleaner or a modern day equivalent emerging "ipod" for "mp3 player"
