Customer Questions & Answers

What is the 'H" shaped hole on the back of the knife for?

Asked by: Sasquatch
The belt clip is reversible for tip up or tip down carry. The slots is where that clip goes. The one near the pivot for tip down and the other one for tip up.

Fastback Spring Assisted Serrated Utility Knife is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok knife, assist lever broke Liked the knife, cheap durable cover. The assist worked good for a while. Went to flip it open and it did, I heard a pop and I went to put the blade back in and it went in, but came back open a bit. The metal lever inside that presses up against the bottom of the blade broke right in the middle. The knife is still functional when it's locked, open but when it's closed, there's nothing from keeping the blade from opening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp Knife with nice features Milwaukee fastback knife is a well built knife with spring assist for quick opening. This knife has a black oxide stainless steel blade with attached thumb knobs for assisting the blade into the open position. The blade itself has a serrated edge near the handle that is one inch long while the rest of the blade has a double edge to the blade with a piercing tip for tearing. The blade overall is 3 inches.all together with handle is 7 13/16 long. The handle is made in the Milwaukee red with a reverse belt clip. Comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife...opens fast...good work pocket knife The spring assist makes this a very fast opening knife - almost as fast as an automatic (aka "switchblade"). It's opens easily with the thumb-studs, and the liner lock is very good. The lock sits in the middle of the blade when engaged (see my photos). It is not going to slip off while being used. The clip on the back of the knife can be moved to the other end of the knife. It's a feature, but it isn't a very good one. The placement puts the clip in an uncomfortable spot for holding the knife. I included some pictures. The only drawback to this knife is that is bright red. That makes it a little awkward to carry in some situations / settings. BUT - the bright color is great for work because it's easier to see and hard to leave lying someplace after using it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spring breaks in just under a year. The knife is pretty well made and holds it's edge quite well, but after about 10 months of light to medium use the spring broke. For a $30 knife I think the spring could of held up a little better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well designed and thought out. If you want to, skip to the summary at the bottom. YOU CANNOT HAVE A BUTTON OPEN ACTION, many reviewers are uninformed that to have a button to fling the knife open, would be an automatic knife and thus illegal in some states. By having the thumb stud and requiring you to push the blade to a certain point, the knife is legal in all states as a spring assisted knife. To have the knife as an automatic would also make the knife much more expensive because of logistics and design concerns. If one wishes to have a fully automatic knife, please look at another 100 dollar knife and don't fault this inexpensive $30 one. To have the knife as spring assisted is a design choice rather than a design fault. I would not have bought an automatic knife. I have another knife, a coast DX431 that I will use for comparison purposes which is a fighting knife vs the Milwaukee knife which is a utility knife. I love Milwaukee and their products, especially the magnetic tape measure because of the design and features, I won't use any other tape measure, that said, I am not a fanboy. I do however trust their products which is why I bought this knife. The spring action is easy to use and amazingly satisfying. It is lightweight and has a balance well suited to a utility knife. The serrations and steel are good quality but the black oxide coating is scratched easily, which is of no consequence to me but worth noting. The grip is a high quality plastic grip. The blade is made of a relatively high quality steel to it's price point, and the blade itself has a sharp tip and serrations along with two blade sides. It is, however, not a fighting knife or meant to be used as such. The grip isn't designed to be held upside down and the balance is top heavy instead of more spread out. The grip doesn't have as aggressive of a grip as on a fighting but rather a well molded grip for a vertical, blade up style, grip. The pocket clip is reversible for upside down carry and is deep enough but not completely hidden. The two straight lengths of blade are a breeze to sharpen and maintain instead of a curved or angled blade. The serrations require a bit more work and skill to sharpen but they should maintain an edge for awhile. It also includes a slot for lanyards. IDK if i already mentioned this but it's really easy to sharpen because there are only two straight blades to sharpen rather than a curve. Compare this to the Black Coast DX341 in the picture below. My only complaint is the recessed liner lock which I believe should stick out a bit more, there is the black coast knife which has a wonderful liner lock for comparison. The knife looks very good and has the look and feel of a high quality utility knife from a brand name. It is a bit specialized in just being a versatile utility knife, the only thing designed for fighting is the fact that it's a sharp object everything else is either designed against fighting or provides no help at all in a fight but provides tremendous help for utility. Although be careful when opening the knife your first few times, you may not expect the blade to practically jump out of your thumb and into action which may cause your thumb to slip and possibly cut on the serrations. This knife is very safe as most of the cuts when using most knifes especially for novices, come from closing the blade. It is specifically designed to not cut you when closing with a two fold protection design. You can refer to the pictures below and for comparison a regular knife closing. Keep in mind this knife is $30 and thus the steel is good for that price and the plastic is good for that price; essentially the material is good but not amazing but what is amazing is how well designed the knife is rather than the sheer quality of material. The ergonomics and the safety of the blade and the inherent robustness of design and the ease of maintenance on the blade and the perfect design of the blade and the very well designed blade angles to make a fine sharp point and the versatility is what makes the knife the best valued knife i have ever seen and ranks very high among knives regardless of price point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a stupid looking "tacti-cool" Rambo I wanted an assited opening pocket knife, but just about everything out there looked like it was trying to be a Rambo-esque, special forces, kill or be killed knife. It was embarassing. This red handled pocket knife with the "Milwaukee" printed on the handle is unmistakably a working tool, not a weapon or psuedo weapon. The red handle makes it easy to spot when I put it down. The blade can perform a multitude of cutting tasks and if I loose it, I'm not out of a great deal of money. Extremely happy with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from problems Good knife, spring assist is problem free. Good blade and handle. BUT, the clip is junk. It hangs on everything and gets bent out of shape. The clip really brings this knife down, as cheap and under thought. That's what holds it in position in your pocket, and it's not to be trusted.
