Questions & Answers

Can the blade lock at a 45° angle? The picture of it being used to open a box makes it look like it.

Asked by: Steve
This supposedly is the Fastback III which has the 4 blade storage inside and 45 degree angle. The Fastback 2 does not have the option of the 45 degree angle position and only stores 1 blade inside. Would be nice if they put 'Fastback III' on the case, so you don't assume this is the Fastback 1. The Fastback 2 model literally says 'Fastback II' on the case.

How do I change blade

Asked by: Ice
There's a convenient release on the blade holder- just press it w/ your right thumb. Some say it's too convenient- you can press it accidentally if you're not careful- and I agree, but I still think it's the best utility knife on the market. Likewise the wire-form clip- it's easy on your pocket, but somewhat fragile. I bent one out of shape, but my second one has lasted for a couple of years now.

Customer Reviews

Fastback Flip Utility Knife with Blade Storage is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from so this was my favorite box cutter ever until it stopped holding the blade as other reviews have ... so this was my favorite box cutter ever until it stopped holding the blade as other reviews have pointed out. I bought this as an impulse buy and didn't check reviews like i normally do and this thing while i loved it for the month or 2 it worked, now the blade keeps coming out constantly and it's too annoying and unproductive to use now. Shame because it's otherwise a really nice cutter. i did dismantle it and rebuild it bending the springs for more tension but it didn't help at all. If you are smart enough to check reviews, stay away from this one you will regret it. Also I'd like to point out that while it says it has a limited lifetime warranty, home depot won't honor it (unless of course you have receipt and it's in the return window), they just directed me to milwaukee store, It almost feels like it's made to fail in a month or 2 of use. i'll try and get an exchange from them but it's just not worth all the hassle. consider yourself warned.

The knife was great when new, but after a month of use the blade retention mechanism wore out. I own a lot of Milwaukee tools. I am very happy with all of them. So I figured maybe I got a lemon. Bought another one. Same result. It wore out in a few weeks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't hold blade! When my daughter gave this to me as a birthday present I was very excited! I do have several utility knives and I have one "go to" which is an old yellow Stanley from 1995 I think. This new Fastback has a place for my forefinger which I love and it flips open with a push of a button and I can clip it on my pocket so I couldn't wait to use it! NOW the bad news that makes this thing worthless ... IT DOES NOT HOLD THE BLADE! The little button that is suppose to hold the blade is apparently a MAJOR flaw! Everytime I try to cut down cardboard to put in the trash the blade comes out of the knife and stays in the cardboard after a few inches of cutting! Unhappy Camper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragile Blade Holder I took this knife - brand new - to Mexico on a build we were doing in Juarez. I was excited to have a decent knife for cutting buffalo board, drywall, stripping wires etc - unfortunately for me, as soon as we started cutting the buffalo board it was clear the blade holding mechanism was going to be an issue. Continuously, the blade lodged itself into the buffalo board and VERY easily pulled right out of the knife. If I wiggled the knife wrong the blade would fall out. In general this design seems like the weakest link, if the blade won't stay in, it doesn't do much good. Maybe I got a bad one, but even if it worked for a while, there are much more robust blade lock designs that seem like they'll stand the test of time better (Greenlee, and Bessey Knives for example). I wanted to like this knife as I respect the Milwaukee brand alot, but this is one is a dud.

I purchased this utility knife recently after seeing it on many "top 5" sites, and my first day of use I used it quite a bit. I was very pleased at first as it has a durable handle, flips open/closed easily, and changes blades quickly. After a couple hours of use, however, the blade would no longer stay in. It seems to lock into place but when cutting pressure is applied the blade slips right out! I changed the blade several times throughout the day but and it kept happening. Apparently, the blade-locking mechanism is a weak link in this product. Regardless of how nice the rest of the tool is, if the blade consistently slips out it renders the knife useless. Very disappointed, as I wanted to love this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fastback 3 is a horrible knife! I got the Fastback 3 for Christmas to replace my ageing Fastback 2 and the 3 is absolute junk when it comes to blade retention. After about a week of light use, the blade kept pulling out as I would go to cut anything. I have tried multiple different blade manufacturers and have had the same results. I will be looking for another Fastback 2 and staying away from the 3!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've owned Easily the best I've ever owned. I've had this knife for a couple years now and I absolutely love it, and came to write a review just to prove that. I use it every day and today I noticed that the star screws on it were loose and then just kinda realized how long I've had it and how well worn it is. This is the first issue I've had with it and it was easily fixed. Otherwise I've never had had a knife for so long that I still want to use. I don't use the wire cutter/stripper but the blade storage is the most compact and simple I've seen and easiest to use. I use loose blades all the time and it's a feature I really appreciate. I also really appreciate the blade lock, both open and closed. I haven't ever had an issue with losing the blade while cutting except if it wasn't in properly, in which case you're not able to close it either. Anyway. Buy it you'll love it. I'm thinking of buying extras for down the road in case I need replacement parts, cause I can definitely see this thing outliving it's production run.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife but one flaw I love this knife for most part. Easy to open one handed. Locks at 45 degree angle which works great for cutting certain materials or even cutting up boxes. Love the extra blade storage. It never fails that you need sharp blade and you need to go find one. The pocket clip holds great and better constructed then I thought it would be when saw online. The body of knife is solid, heavy duty. There is perfect spot to place thumb when cutting materials. I rated knife 4 stars but would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for one thing. The blade release is a button at top of blade holder. If you hold knife close to blade to carve into piece of wood the button is pushed and blade comes out. I am a handyman and do all degrees of work. In plumbing and electrical this works great. When I am doing finish carpentry sometimes, especially with trim, you need to carve a little wood out of back of trim to get tight fit. This is where the blade being accidentally removed comes into play. If there was better way to more securely hold blade in knife this knife would be 100% perfect.
