FASTBACK 5 in. Flip Pocket Knife is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love with this knife. I bought the smooth blade wrist-flip model at Home Depot and after the 10% military discount it cost less than $10 after tax. The blade is a surprisingly good qualitrly stonewashed stainless steel and it was razor sharp directly out of the packaging. So far, it has maintained an outstanding edge and without the tanto tip, anodizing or searations it will be easier to sharpen than the spring-assist model by orders of magnitude. The smooth rigid-wire pocket-clip is positioned for tip-down carry deep in the right-hand pocket and the knife is almost invisible when you put it away. When it does come out the familiar red handle and Milwaukee logo say "tool" not "weapon" which makes nervous people less so. There are no sharp edges on the pocket-clip to catch on anything besides your trousers (as intended) or to scratch your vehicle; and the clip doesn't add unnesessarily to the weight. There is a small ledge on the side of the handle to slip the knife easily out of your pocket. The clip can also be repositioned for tip-up left hand carry. It only took about twenty minutes of practicie for me to completely master the "wrist-flip" opening technique and it was actually fun learning to do it effortlessly. This feature is lightning fast (especially after a short break in period and a couple drops of oil). It also makes an unsightly hole in the blade the spring, and thumb studs (that snag your pants pocket) complete unnecessary. The grip has a nice indentation that reveals plenty of blade surface for slow two-handed opening when a less flashy presentation is aporoprtate and the absence of a spring makes that process very easy. The same indentation provides easy access to the liner lock and it anchors the fore-finger to the handle when the knife is in use. There is also jimping on the liner lock to comfortably grip your index finger as well as thumb-jimping where the choil pivots in the handle. Consequently, this knife is very easy to grip tightly and to control when applying force to the edge. Aside from the liner lock to hold the blade open, there is a thumb-button frame lock to hold it closed. The stainless steel liners give this knife the rigid feel of a fixed-blade model with a full tang and they add enough heft to the handle to make it secure and comfortable in the hand for heavier tasks. When closed the blade is well- centered with no interference from the liner edges. If the blade position ever requires adjustment there are mini-torx threaded fasteners on both sides of the pivot. In fact the knife has open-architecture and can be completely disassembled by the owner for cleaning and lubrication. a feature rarely available even on the most expensive knives and multi-tools. There is a lanyard hole which is extremely useful for securing the knife while working on a ladder. The rigid plastic grips are rugged and have good traction. They are ideal for challenging work environments where heat cold dirt grease and moisture make using a knife difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This thing is sturdy and lives up to my abuse. I like the wire stripper and the rope cutter. Fast opening

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This an excellent retractable utility knife. I use this with wiring pulling & nylon string. I use a fixed blade utility knife for scoring and cutting drywall panels. Blade changes are so easy & efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid. A couple days ago this knife slid down the roof I was working on and fell 30 feet onto the frozen ground. I looked over at my coworker and said "if that survived the fall I will write a review on it". Needless to say the knife works as good as the day I got it!! Amazing quality, and the best utility knife I have ever owned in over ten years of construction! Worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The awesome knife that couldn't cut it...sort of.. I bought this knife because, let's face it, it's really cool looking & I like switchblades! I work in the paper industry & was disappointed only because the small screw on the bottom of the blade holder tore into the tissue before the blade had a chance to cut. That being said, it works fantastic for everything else I've used it for (I make cabinets on the side). The handle fits my hand superbly, opening it is a breeze, the gut hook makes quick work of twine & rope, blade changes are fast & easy! If you want a utility knife that's way cooler than your neighbors, this is it! The first time you flip it open in front of them, they'll turn green with envy! Yet another great Milwaukee tool for your collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite far and above my favorite utility knife. i've always been happy with my Milwaukee tools, but this knife has no equal. + locks open AND shut. keeps kids from the blade. + ergo handle works great, gives lots of control to the cut. keeps your hand on the handle and away from the blade. +sturdy, sturdy, sturdy. very little flex, blade play, etc. makes for a good, accurate cut. I bought three and wish i had bought more. Home Depot should be selling these babies in the stores, not just online. the only fault i can find with it is that occasionally i will have my thumb up on the bladed holder and will press the blade release. this happens rarely and many others knives have this same issue. as long as these are still on the market i don't see a need to buy any other single-blade utility knife.
