Answer: 
I believe so. I'm guessing you are talking about the disposable blades for cutting linoleum or carpet. This knife uses the standard two or three notch on the top of the blade to hold the blade in place. Milwaukee even sells the hook blades.

Fastback Utility Knife is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from great utility knife, poor pocket knife I really like the design and function of the utility knife, the pocket knife however leaves some to be desired. The design of how the pocket knife lockes makes one handed opening impossible. I think ill be returning this set for the same utility knife that comes with the free blades and het a spring assisted milwaukee pocket knife.

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 Great Set Surprisingly, the part of this set I've found myself using the most often is the utility knife. The blade locks into place securely and is very sharp right out of the packaging. I also love the way the blade is exposed when it's closed so it can be used as a safety cutter for straps, belts, zip ties, etc. The knife is quality as well - the blade is sharp and it has a nice balance to it. I really like the push-button blade release. My only complaint is that the same button doesn't release the blade for closure on the knife. Personally, I think that would be more convenient & intuitive. Regardless, great set!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Camo knife does not flip open for me. I bought the kit for the Camo knife. It functions so ... The Camo knife does not flip open for me. I bought the kit for the Camo knife. It functions so poorly I feel purchased a very expensive utility knife. It has no groove for a thumbnail either. It has no stud on the blade to assist opening it either. It does not have spring assist for the blade. The utility knife is very comfortable. The disposable blade does have a lot of in and out wiggle when installed. Maybe better quality blades will fix that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo set! Both of these knives are well constructed and make a great addition to the tool box. The Camo knife opens easily and is very sharp. The case is lightweight but very durable and has stood up to the abuse I've already put it through. The utility knife has a quick blade change feature and is a great companion to the camo knife. As always, I believe that Milwaukee makes some of the best tools around and this set is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No-frills dependable knife If you're looking for a no-frills, basic, yet dependable knife, this is a great value. Although I'm partial to my other Milwaukee knife, this version certainly gets the job done. It does take a good flick of the wrist to actually get it to open one-handed and it definitely requires both hands to close due the locking mechanism. The utility knife is just icing on the cake with this packaged deal - hard to beat for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! When I received this knife I was not able to open or close it. I sprayed some WD-40 on the springs and it finally worked. I never owned one like this before and I love it. Also, the camouflage look is too cool. My neighbor came over and said that he had never seen one like it. I told him don't even think about it, knowing since he was ex-military that he would like to have it. No go. I am glad to have this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knives, Nice Combo I have been using milwaukee knives for a few years. These knives are great. Drop, kick, throw, pry, haha. Anything you throw at these knives, they just keep working. They are just made well. The Utility Knife will hold just about any style blade that has the universal fitting at the top. The blades change in seconds. No tools are needed to change the blade. The knife has slots for wire, string, or rope cutting. Also has a safety that locks the knife closed or open. Don't forget the belt clip! This does NOT hold extra blades. The Camo Knife is similar to any other pocket knife, you just get the Milwaukee quality. I have had many of these with the red handle, its nice to have a change. I have yet to have one of these rust. no matter if I sharpen it with a stone or a grinder, it gets sharp and hold an edge really well. This also has a locking mechanism that requires use of your thumb to close the knife.
