Anybody know the sharpening angle?

Asked by Andy January 31, 2020
1
Answer

I'm not sure what the sharpening angle is. But I like this guide here: 40-60 Degrees Inclusive 40-60 Degrees Inclusive Edge Bevels Are 20-30 Degrees Per Side Knives sharpened to 20-30 degrees per side tend to best represent balance. Chop wood at the campsite and then run home to slice up tomatoes for a BLT. Your knife can do it all! There’s no better choice for an EDC knife.

So D2 or AUS-8 steel? It is quite a huge difference.

It is clearly labelled as AUS-8. Who would use D2?

How to care for the knife so it doesn't rust?

Asked by Hardwareguy99 August 22, 2019

Answers

You could use a rust-inhibiting spray. But in truth the edge is all you need to worry about, and each time you cut, you will wear off that protection. Quickly you will go through spray due to waste, and of course you will have to keep the spray with you, which can lead to accidents. My advice (and I speak as someone with several thousand dollars in high end combat blades alone, some of which are over $700 each) is instead to keep in your bag and your truck a Marine Tuf-Cloth, a product of Sentry Solutions. It will let you effortlessly wipe a protective, lubricating coating onto any metal surface you like. It comes in a little foil-lined ziplock-style bag, is small and light enough to easily stashed almost anywhere, and lasts practically forever. Just use the included cloth to wipe the surface, then stick it back in the pouch. The cloth itself is impregnated with the substance, and it is fine to get on your hands or clothing so no worries about stains or toxins. I've used that product for fifteen years in and out of the Army, camping, hunting, hiking, cooking, toolmaking, shooting, even on my firearms. It's legit.

Where is it made

Asked by DavidH August 21, 2019

Answer

It is made in Taiwan.

Does the blade fold or slide in and out?

Asked by Tony August 19, 2019

Answers

No. This is a fixed blade, meaning it cannot change position. Kitchen knives are fixed blades, for example, and so is this.

Milwaukee 5 in. Hardline Fixed Blade Knife review - As my Grandson says when something is just way too kewl - BAM! This 5 inch blade is full tang and has a big handle to grab. It feels so comfortable in your hand. This blade is VERY sharp (reminds me of a razor blade) and HOLDS and EDGE! Tough, tough, tough. It is also legal size carry in Texas. The sheath it comes with is very durable and easily takes and holds the knife. I just recently used it cut cut into some drywall for a floor I am installing and it sliced through it with ease! Remember, when using it, this thing is SHARP. I love this product; just like all other Milwaukee products - outstanding, durable, useful. So glad I got this. This is right at home on camping trips and out in the bush. Wow. There ya go!

(What's this)
This is a very nice full tang fixed blade knife. It comes with a dangler style sheath that has loops for your belt and loops for Molle. I found the sheath and knife very comfortable to wear. The knife snaps securely into the sheath and takes a couple of fingers pushing against the sheath to free the knife for use. My knife arrive fairly sharp with a few noticeable burrs. Five minutes on the wet stone had it tuned up fine. This is a carbon steel knife not a stainless steel knife, so it will require more care to prevent rusting. The handle feels really nice and the knife feels natural to use.

I’m an outdoor kind of guy; camping, fishing, and a DiYer. I’m around knives a lot. Two of my standouts are an 8” survival knife, and a machete. However, when it comes to my tools, somehow I didn’t have a good non-razor utility knife until I acquired the Milwaukee 5” Hardline Fixed Blade Knife. Upon removing this knife from its packaging, it was immediately apparent that it was going to be more than just a tool box utility knife. It is certainly “utility” in every sense. I will be taking it with me when I go camping, fishing, as well as tooling. Pretty much where ever I am, my Milwaukee Hardline knife will be there with me. My knife certainly has its work cut out for it with numerous remodeling projects in and outside of the home. I’ve already been using it to demo old linoleum flooring and trim new flooring as well. This is a full-tang fixed-bladed knife, which you can ‘see’ because the handle is actually two pieces attached to either side of the metal blade. The over-molded handle, when gripped hard, has just enough “give” to contour to your hand. It gives you comfort and control when using the blade. The blade itself is SHARP. When removing the blade from the sheath for the first time, I actually cut my finger. If need be, there’s room for further sharpening but I think it comes plenty sharp enough for most applications. It’s also “heavy”. There’s no doubt it is one solid knife. You can literally “see” the thickness of the blade. If you didn’t know what AUS-8 steel was before, you will learn fast upon examining this knife. The blade even looks pretty with its black sheen. Another gem about this product is the sheath! Some of my other knives are good, but came with poor quality sheaths. Not this one. The portion of the Milwaukee’s sheath that houses the blade is made of a hard plastic composite material that locks the blade in place. Even if you held it upside down without the blade strapped in, it won’t fall out. I also love that you can strap the sheath on horizontally as well as vertically, although I don’t think the sheath is as secure when worn horizontal. If I had to come up with a con, it’s that there is not serrated teeth on the backside of the blade. I know such a thing isn’t really a prominent feature on 5” blades but it appears to have been attempted here, but not really. I say, if you’re going to do it, might as well be “all in” with it. When I think of quality knives, brands like Buck and Gerber come to mind. Now, I’ll always think of Milwaukee first. From now, when I dive into my toolbox looking for a cutting instrument, my Milwaukee Hardline is going to be the first thing I reach for.

This is an excellent work knife. Once you learn how to sharpen you'll never go back to "box cutters" or replaceable bladed knives. The length and the width of the blade are excellent for opening boxes, cutting strapping, shaving wood, and other odd tasks. The full tang construction (meaning the metal structure of the knife runs from tip to tip of its entire length) is the strongest architecture available for hand tools. This means the handle will always remain secure as you lever the blade for increased cutting leverage. The sheath is really versatile and secure. If you need additional security, the strap holding the sheath to your pack or tool belt can be snapped around the handle so it can't come out. In normal use though, the knife just slides into the sheath and stops with a solid "click" that keeps the knife from casually sliding out. It comes razor sharp. I haven't had it long enough to see how easily it can be resharpened, but so far I haven't seen anything to tell me that it'll be any easier or harder than my other hand tools.

(What's this)
The 5" Milwaukee Hardline Fixed Blade knife is impressive and has become my primary knife for carrying and backpacking. Out of the box it was sharp enough to shave my arm hair. To test the blade I split pine using the knife and a mallet. I was very surprised at how little vibration I felt in the handle. The blade and handle felt strong and stable and it was pretty comfortable to split and chop wood to make kindling. The blade was just as sharp afterward. I really like the full length of the blade through the handle, which I think is a must for a knife in this size and price point. The handle is made from glass re-enforced nylon which is very durable, long lasting, and fairly heat resistant. The handle is also comfortable and the grips work well. It's beefy, balanced well, and sits well in my hand. The grooves on the blade keep my thumb fixed as I'm working and I have no fear of my fingers slipping onto the blade. The blade is made from AUS-8 steel which is a hard material but still fairly easy to sharpen. The sheath is reversible so the blade can slide in either way. It's pretty comfortable when worn parallel with my belt at the small of my back. There are notches on the handle of the knife that click into the sheath so it will only come out if you want it to. Overall, I am very happy and pleased with this knife.

This is a good compliment to my Hardline folders (pocket knives). This is a nice drop point smooth (not serrated) blade which is my preference for knives. It's a good overall size for a fixed blade. It is a full tang knife, but I feel the scales should be a bit heavier. The balance of the knife is toward the tip. The scales are comfortable though and not overly large or excessively overmolded. Glass reinforced nylon Is a nice touch. I do like the shape of the blade. I wish they used D2 like in the hardline folding knives. I have several knives with AUS-8 steel and it is very capable, but my fixed blades tend to see more abuse than a folding pocket knife so the durability of D2 would have been appreciated. Sharpness out of the package left a little to be desired, but I'm sort of a perfectionist here. The final grind was a tad rough in spots, leaving a burr still. I touched it up on some high grit stones. It took and kept a very keen edge so the steel is heat treated well. The sheath isn't a throw away. It's actually nice. The knife locks in pretty well and it has a strap that goes around the handle. It can be positioned on a belt either vertically or horizontally. Overall I am happy with this and it will definitely get a ton of use.

This knife is pretty heavy duty. It is a dense steel full tang blade that you can clearly see going down through the bottom of the handle. It is very sharp but not like sword sharp so you don't have to be intimidated by carrying it around. The sheath is super durable and locks the blade into place using a simple notch on the blade handle. It would make for an excellent accessory when camping, or just to keep in your general tool kit for moments when you need to cut through something dense like rope or even ducting.
