A cool utility knife? Really? Well Milwaukee has managed to create a well-built, useful and cool utility knife–Milwaukee 48-22-1901 Fastback Flip Open Utility Knife. The design of the knife centers around ease of use and speed of use. If you read the promo material they advertise that you can open the knife 3x faster because you open the knife one handed. Press the button and let gravity do the work. When the knife is locked open, we never felt a wobble. Make sure your fingers are out of the way though when you close the knife–otherwise it can hurt you.
- As a regular utility knife
- As a wire cutter
- As a gut hook (when closed) that allows you to cut string or twine without opening the knife
The knife is well built and the frame is a bit thinner than most utility knives–makes it slide into a pocket or tool belt easily. The Fastback also has a wire clip to allow you to clip it to your pocket.
All in all a cool tool and perhaps a good stocking stuffer. You can buy it for about $13 at Amazon and other tool retailers. Milwaukee 48-22-1901 Fastback Flip Open Utility Knife
