Decent
I don't get all the 5 star reviews. Perhaps they are from right out of the package. This review is from everyday carry for over a year. I bought this and a longer one but this is in my pocket most often between the two, mostly due to the size and serrations. The knife comes decently sharp needing a minor touch up. It dulls fairly easy. Perhaps my specific knife did not get proper heat treating but it behaves similarly to the longer one so I don't think so. After a day of use, I have to at least take a honing steel, like one in my kitchen set, to revive the edge. The easy recovery of the edge is what makes this a 3-star knife. If it dulled like this and was hard to recover, there is no way I would recommend this. For me the flip open and one handed closing is easily done but the lock should be raised a bit to make release a bit easier to access. As it is, I push my thumb into the knife recess a bit to ensure I can unlock the blade. Of course, mine is well used and broken in at this point so I can open with a flick of the finger tab. I did black sharpie the red plastic liner because I did bot like the red beacon flashing out of my pocket. I do like the wearing of the black finish. It looks like a "battle worn" look with the high portions wearing just right. I am glad I bought it on a daily special sale, otherwise at full price, the knife would not be worth it.

    Sharp, deep carry and semi-reversible clip
    Milwaukee is known for making great tools and this one is no exception! Whether you’re getting it as an EDC or just as a spare quality knife, you’ll love it – I do! It feels great in my hand opened or closed. It effortlessly opens with a flick of the index finger and easily closes while pushing down the safety bar with my thumb. The belt clip is great. It has a groove that can be grabbed with the finger while trying to take the knife out of the pocket. The belt clip sits deep almost at the very tip, but it’s only semi-reversible from side-to-side but not top-to-bottom. The handle is made of two materials: plastic and steel. There is a classic Milwaukee red filler in the middle. The handle looks and feels really nice. I’m not a blade or steel expert, but I read a few articles raving about D2 steel holding an edge and being extremely durable. I love the serrated Tanto blade design and the stone washed black oxide finish which gives it a nice “worn-in” look that should last. I have used it many times now on carpet, rope, wood, leather, cardboard and plastic and was not disappointed in how it handled all the materials. Even the packaging is really nice and well designed. It sits opened in a blister pack, but is well protected with a tip cover. Awesome knife overall for a contractor, but would also make a great gift or addition to an EDC knife collector.

    Nice, high quality knife!
    This is a really great little knife! It folds out and closed really easily (sometimes it feels too easily but it has never come open accidentally). Comes with great D2 steel and sharpens up really nicely. Perfect do it all knife that locks into position very firmly and will serve you well as it has a great basic design that is time proven. Highly recommend!

    Great Knife!
    The Milwaukee Hardline 3.5 inch smooth blade pocket knife is a great everyday carry knife. The blade is made of D2 steel and is blacked out. There is a clip on one side so you can clip it on to your pocket for easy access. The blade locks in place when opened for safety. This knife has good weight to it so if you are looking for a lightweight knife this is not it. This knife looks like it can take a beating and survive just fine. It has an easy opening tab that lets you open it with just one finger. I really like this knife and I carry it daily!

    Solid
    The knife is extremely strong, with a very thick blade made of D2 steel This makes the knife quite heavy, considering that one complete side of handle is made of plastic. It's lot heavier than it looks, and one of the heaviest folding knives I've used. The blade has a very nice finish to it as well. It fits nicely into a medium sized hand, with a surprisingly comfy grip. Holds well either facing up, or facing down in your hand. Easy to open and close with one hand. Magnet lightly holds the blade closed so it won't pop open on you. And it's also got the standard Milwaukee Lifetime warranty, so you know it'll last. Overall, a solid blade for any number of tasks.

    Big thick D2 steel at a value
    If you are looking for a knife with a D2 blade, this is a great value, seriously. I have another knife with this steel that cost almost twice as much. These knives have a great feel in your hand. The knife comes out of the package super sharp, which is nice since the last thing you want to do right away is sharpen D2 steel. I have both the 2.5 and the 3.5 models. Both knives were able to cut cleanly through paper, but were not sharp enough to shave with, although I did remove a fair amount of dead skin trying. The 2.5 is perfect for carrying in your pocket and the 3.5 will do well in a situation where carrying a bigger knife makes more sense. It really stands out hanging from your pocket. The flip action took a little getting used to for me. It really helps if you have the knife oriented so the blade is pointing down, and let gravity help. Otherwise you might have to give it a little flick to get it to open all the way. My only real beef with the knife is the blade lock. There isn't much room for your finger/thumb to engage it and it is slippery. So far I have only been able to safely close the knife with two hands, which is a real bummer. Also, the 3.5 is a little big, and I had it come off my pocket while sitting on a couple of occasions.

    Super heavy duty pocket knife
    Super heavy duty little knife that is sharp the full length. The D2 steel for the blade is a super tough tool steel used to make high production stamping dies and holds an edge forever, well it seems like it does. The first thing I do with a new knife is rub my hand & thumb all over the outside hard looking for sharp edges or snag areas. Absolutely none. The only thing that catches are the flipper to open blade with and that is not sharp just non-slip and the belt clip. The flipper is positioned when blade is open to prevent the hand from sliding onto blade. Great nonslip nylon handle on one side with a plastic spacer in Milwaukee’s distinctive red. The other side of handle is stainless steel without any checkering but the belt clip is on that side and the locking lever that adds some texture so I don’t think slipping will be a problem. Using the flipper the blade opens with either hand using the index finger. An easy snap and it is locked and loaded. Nice sharp blade straight from factory locks open solidly. Handle has a diamond shaped opening for a thin strap or wrist loop not some puny hole. The belt clip is effective and easily removed if you don’t want it. Screw heads are made for a mini-Torx driver or, if you are like me and do not have the mini-Torx a #0 Allen wrench will work. Measures 4 3/4” closed by 1 1/2” wide by 3/8” thick without the belt clip and 5/8” thick over belt clip. Only the spacer and one handle are glass filled nylon, the rest is steel so it is heavy for it’s size but that weight also gives the knife a good feel.

    A very serioous pocket knife

Using the flipper the blade opens with either hand using the index finger. An easy snap and it is locked and loaded. Nice sharp blade straight from factory locks open solidly. and the serrations are a full 1 inch long and very effective. The D2 steel Tanto blade is handy for piercing just about any material, well, not armor plate but sheet metal is a breeze. Handle has a diamond shaped opening for a thin strap or wrist loop not some puny hole. The belt clip is effective and easily removed if you don’t want it. Screw heads are made for a mini-Torx driver or, if you are like me and do not have the mini-Torx a #0 Allen wrench will work.

    A very useful pocket knife. Must have at all times.
    Once the Milwaukee Hard line pocket knife arrived, I put it to a test in cutting up an old 7 X 10 rug. I challenged it with a utility knife. The utility knife did great but the milwaukee hard line knife did an excellent cut with its 3 inch smooth tip combined together with an inch serrated tanto blade. I'm not saying to drop all the utility knifes over this pocket knife. I am simply saying this knife meets more than its expectations and it works wonders. Very lightweight and handy. The only issue I had with the serrated blade pocket knife was having to unlock the blade. The release lock is flush to the frame and makes it a bit difficult to close the blade. Besides that I am super satisfied with pocket knife.
