Asked by: Carlos
I really do not know if it is available in stores, I do however know you can easily order it online along with the replacement blades.

2.5 in. Cable Skinning Utility Knife with Replaceable Blade is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A folding knife with a quickly replaceable blade securely held by a single retaining screw. The ... A folding knife with a quickly replaceable blade securely held by a single retaining screw. The hawkbill blade shape has an inward-curved edge designed to cut on the pull stroke. Offered for stripping cable insulation, it’s also useful for cutting carpeting, linoleum, roofing shingles, sod, and garden pruning. The blade alloy is 440A stainless steel, not super hard but easy to re-sharpen and corrosion-resistant. The handle has ridged rubber inserts for a secure non-slip grip. A thumb stud enables one-handed opening by right-handed users. The blade is liner locking—secured in place when open. The knife has a solid feel comparable to a fixed blade design. There is no provision to attach a lanyard or tether. That would be a helpful feature because cable skinning is often done on elevated platforms. The handle has a metal frame. If a non-conductive handle is required, look elsewhere. Quick on-the-job blade replacement is a useful time-saving feature—unusual on a folding knife. Recommended for situations where it’s safe to use an electrically conductive handle. Made in China.

My last knife just fell apart one day. I needed a replacement. To quote Crocodile Dundee, "That's not a knife, THIS is a knife!" Sturdy construction. Nice large, sharp and replaceable blade. Beefy belt clip. I'm not the type to be skinning any 00 electric cables, but it'll sure do the job on 12 gauge outdoor romex, rope, sheetrock and so forth. Locks firmly, no wiggle. Replacement blades readily available now, I like to order them and keep a stock in case something changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS CABLE SKINNING UTILITY KNIFE IS VERY WELL MADE AND EASY TO USE, IT HAS A NICE HANDLING FEEL. THE KNIFE BLADE FOLDS DOWN IN TO THE HANDLE SO IT BECOMES SAFE TO HANDLE AND TO PUT IN YOUR POCKET IF NEED BE, IT ALSO HAS A CLIP ON THE SIDE OF THE HANDLE SO AS TO BE ABLE TO CLIP IT ON YOUR BELT. THE FACT THAT THE BLADE CAN BE REPLACED IS A PLUS, WHICH MEANS THIS KNIFE WILL BE IN USE FOR A LONG TIME.

The blade has kept a good edge and my favorite part is the comfort of the handle. The handle is a little wider than most cutting knifes, this allows for more leverage and comfort which allows for more precision while cutting. I also let a couple of co workers try it out and I'm pretty sure they will be purchasing one soon.

It has a quality blade that continues to remain sharp. I like the inserts that allow me to get a good grip on the knife. It's well balanced and cuts very nice. I also like the lock feature for safety reasons.The clip is very handy and allows me to carry this knife with me at all times. I've found that I'm always having to use a utility knife for one reason or another. I've bought many Klein tools for a reason, and that reason is quality. I expect nothing less from Klein Tools. I received this utility knife at no cost in exchange for an honest review, which I have provided.

This knife is just excellent, I can not say enough good things about it. It can come in handy for everything not just skinning cable, I use mine constantly for all sorts of things. It is extremely well built and is very high quality, everything you would expect from a Klein tool. The orange is plastic and the black is rubber overmolding and it has a very nice belt clip on the side, it is extremely ergonomic and comfortable to hold. It folds open and has a great lock back design which makes it very solid when it is open giving it the feel of a fixed blade knife. The fact that you can change out the blade on it is great and when it is tightened in the blade will not come loose or come out and when it gets dull you can easily replace the blade or if you want you can also sharpen it. I love this knife and totally recommend it!
