I bought this in the combo pack which included the knife. If purchased seperately will the utility knife have the belt or pocket clip?

is there a discount for buying 32 at one time. I can pick them up at my store San Carlos ca

Asked by: safe
You can get a discount by either setting up hd credit card or pro account and you save on large purchases. Or you can go to the store and talk to the milwaukee representative (most stores have them). I bet he or she will give you a good deal on that many. Hope this helps years later.

Customer Reviews

FASTBACK 5 in. Flip Pocket Knife is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 92.
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 Best All around folding utility knife there is. Hands down. The clip alone gets 5 stars. When it ... Best All around folding utility knife there is. Hands down. The clip alone gets 5 stars. When it gets loose, remove it put in vise or some pliers and back to new. There are other knifes that hold the blade more securely and others that are smaller and just as useful. But for comfort, weight, durability , easy one handed opening and the clip, it is the best one out there. I have had both versions and this one is better in my opinion. It does not have the storage, but its more durable that way. Another great Milwaukee product. 3 years for one knife (lives on with a friend), 2 years for the one with storage (Still kickin) and 2 months with new one and pocket knife (thanks black friday)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, best knife I've owned!! Perfect handle size, fast opening works great. The fast open button keeps it closed when not in use. Blade lock clicks all the way, seems to be very safe. My only qualm is that it's a bit difficult to get out of pocket. Pocket clips is tight which is good, but needs a an edge to grab out of pocket. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with it!

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!
