Customer Questions & Answers

does this utility knife come with at least one blade?

Yes
Answered by: Maddasher
Date published: 2015-09-20

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

Asked by: Murph
The pocket clip. The thin wire one

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.

Fastback Utility Knife is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most ergonomic utility knife known to man! Absolutely the most ergonomic utility knife I have ever laid hands upon. Nothing that slides or screws can come close - the deep grips make it profoundly easy to hang on to and to control, in spite of a lack of aggressive jimping or knurled grips. More comfortable in the hand than the (fatter) Fastback 2, and you can store extra blades in your toolbox if you need more. Thumb stud to release the blade from either position works wonderfully, and the blade carrier swings freely, making this the easiest-opening knife I have ever laid fingers upon. If you need a utility knife for anything, there's not a lot of reason to get something else.

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)

Yes it is possible to one handed open the knife. However that requires a perfect flick of wrist. The addition of a thumb stud would need what's needed. Now the next problem the clips. These are the most pathetic clips I've ever seen. After one day the clip on the utility knife wore the paint off the knife. The second day the clip got caught on edge wa.king and mangled. I've had paper clips harder to bend than these clips. Worthless clip. The reason everyone else uses solid clips and thumb studs, they work.

It is rugged and sturdy just like all Milwaukee products are. I like the way it opens - it's balance and the blade isn't as bendable and flimsy like so many others are. Also, I really like the fact that it has a clip on the back of it so you can hang it off of your pocket (may not sound like a big deal but it is).

Just received this set, but since this is a set, I'm having to average-out my rating. The Utility Knife is hands-down a 5-star item for me. It's strong and opens and closes quickly. The Camo Knife, (#48-22-1990) not so much. It appears that it will be several months before the knife wears enough to work properly. Unlike the experience of other reviewers, my knife does not open quickly and easily. I've lubricated and tried to adjust the hinge screws to loosen it, but since the blade is pressing against an overly aggressive "nodule" during its arc, there is still too much resistance. Also, as others have noted, the Utility knife opens and closes after the button is pressed. Wish they could have include that on the camo knife! The knives are made in China, which may explain the use of a liner-lock on the camo knife. Should this knife improve over time, I'll file an amended review, but right now, I'm not impressed.
