Awesome value!
These two Milwaukee knives are my go-to! I have several around my house and one in my car. Super convenient for opening packages, cutting wire, etc. They are super fun to fling open and close, but that might not be a great thing. The larger knife has a spot to cut a seatbelt and store extra blades which is super nice. Both blades that this comes with stay sharp for a loooong time and are easy to change out.

    As razor knives go, best I've ever had. I make gifts out of them, loan them out routinely to co-workers, accomplish a variety of inventive tasks with them, and I have yet to feel let down by the performance. Finest box cutter I know. I waer one clipped to my mining helmet every day.

    Fastback Flip Utility Knife
    This little utility knife is super comfortable for scoring and cutting drywall. I also like that this opens singled handedly which means I can hold my tape measure, edge guide, etc and not have to let go to open this up. This cuts sheetrock well - used this for sheetorkcing a Master Bedroom reno, En Suite Addition, and Guest Bath Reno. It was very comfortable to cut with in a variety of positions and made the job that much easier as my previous knife took both hands to open. This stays in my toolbelt now no matter what I'm working on. Super easy to remove/flip the blade, takes a second to swap them out. Seems pretty durable so far - been beating on it with this Reno and it is holding strong. The body of the knife feels very sturdy, as does the blade housing

    Very nice two pack of utility knives. One is a simple basic flip up that easily locks into place and unlocks to retract with push of a button. The second utility knife is a little larger and has a fold away arm that can store extra blades. The larger utility knife also is able to be snapped open with the flick of a wrist once it is unlocked. This is convenient if you have a situation where you have one hand to use. The casings are made from heavy gauge metal and both come with a clip to clip onto your belt or pocket for easy storage. It would be nice if they gave him more than the standard to 2 blades but it doesn't diminish my opinion that these are high-quality utility knives that will last a very long time.

    Another prove that Milwaukee is a brand of highest standards. Light, durable, comfortable to hold and to operate. I like a lot an idea of a folding utility knife. It makes the product is more compact and easy to carry around. Bough knives fit easily in a pocket of almost an any size. They have strong clips and solid stripe holes, but I, personally, prefer keep utility knives in the pants pockets. Also a larger knife has magnetic blade holder which can hold up to 5 replacement blades; and it has special places to cut a wire in folding and unfolding positions. I'm extremely happy with this instruments and I certainly recommend them.

    These are the handiest utility knives to have around! I am so glad they came in a 2 pack, 1 with extra blade storage and 1 without. I open a lot of packages and packing slips at work and am so glad I got these. Push button release to swing the blade arm open and closed makes for easy 1 hand use. The pocket clip is a nice feature and there is a place to attach a lanyard as well. There is also a string cutter/wire stripper when the knife is closed. The blades are very secure and do not move around at all when using it. Changing the blade out is super easy via a small release button on the blade arm and that button is nicely protected from being accidentally bumped. Extra blade storage is secure as well, I haven't dropped any yet. When closing the extra blade storage just be mindful that it is in it's proper track. I must have not pushed it straight down once and it got crossed over into the blade arm's side preventing the knife from closing. Not a major flaw by any means, only took a second to figure out and correct. I highly recommend these and will be getting a couple more for my tool bag and garage.

    The original utility knife was known as a "Stanley Knife" invented by an famous 19th Century British inventor called Stanley in his company. I have had several versions of Stanley Knives for the last 50 years or more, some with fixed blade and some with retractable blade, and they have been a tool that is a must in every tool box. The redesigned Milwaukee knife while utilizing the same blade as the historical knife has several improvements to its safety and utility. The ergonomically designed handle is a metal casting that is perfect in weight, fit and color for visibility. The blade opening is by activating a latch that provides added safety. The replacement is by releasing a latch holding the blade, as seen in the pictures The main knife has storage for 5 blades while the second one does not, in my case which given to my wife. The attached pictures shows the details and the comparison to a current Utility knife.

    Disappointing compared to previous models
    I've owned every generation of the fast back knives, still have the original in my main tool bag for a back up. This new model feels cheap, they use plastic instead of metal where you load the blade and it the spare blade holder in mine doesn't fit right so it just flops around and rattles. Used the knife for half a day and went out to my truck and grabbed my Fastback 2 instead. I have a new loaner knife if someone else needs to use one now, but I will not be using it. Poor build quality and materials, the fastback knives have been my favorite since they came out. I hope they get it together for the next one because this one is junk.
