Questions & Answers

does this utility knife come with at least one blade?

Asked by: pal
Only one blade, but it is double sided, so when one side get dull, just flip the blade over to the sharp side. No extra blade storage though. Great feeling box cutter. Well worth the cost of this item.

can a hook blade be used in this knife?

Asked by: pacman
Yes. Any standard size blade, regardless of the tip profile will work.

Is the camo knife spring assisted?

Asked by: Tileguy123
No, but opens nice with a flip of the wrist after a very short break in period.

I bought this in the combo pack which included the knife. If purchased seperately will the utility knife have the belt or pocket clip?

Asked by: Murph
The pocket clip. The thin wire one

Fastback Utility Knife is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 131.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knives, Nice Combo I have been using milwaukee knives for a few years. These knives are great. Drop, kick, throw, pry, haha. Anything you throw at these knives, they just keep working. They are just made well. The Utility Knife will hold just about any style blade that has the universal fitting at the top. The blades change in seconds. No tools are needed to change the blade. The knife has slots for wire, string, or rope cutting. Also has a safety that locks the knife closed or open. Don't forget the belt clip! This does NOT hold extra blades. The Camo Knife is similar to any other pocket knife, you just get the Milwaukee quality. I have had many of these with the red handle, its nice to have a change. I have yet to have one of these rust. no matter if I sharpen it with a stone or a grinder, it gets sharp and hold an edge really well. This also has a locking mechanism that requires use of your thumb to close the knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of the Best Utility Knifes The design & the way it fits your hand is the best feature of this utility knife. I've had this knife for about three months & have used it extensively on the field & home. Here are some of the pros: folds in nano seconds, quick blade change, very compact easily fits in pocket or on a belt, blade hasn't come off the knife once, which is a big draw back in most utility knifes (& I'm rough with it that a lot of times the blades brake), it cuts electrical wires nicely (make sure to change blade to get nice cuts), & the design is a big plus, which is really the reason I bought the knife (as mentioned above). Cons: it's a bit pricey, the quick folding mechanism is a bit tricky at first, haven’t found the Milwaukee blades anywhere for the knife, which contain their sharpness longer than most blades (really top notch blades). Highly recommended, one of the best folding utility knifes on the market & great craftmanship tough body. Not sure if I could name other retailers knifes here, but I would rate this as #2 (close #1) of my top 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one problem with this knife I have owned this knife for over 2 years now. The only problem I have ever had is once I loan it to somebody, they do not want to give it back. The weight is excellent, and the handle with finger notch ensures a non-slip grip. I use this knife too many times a day to count and it has always opened quickly. Blade change out is a breeze and unlike most other folding utility knives, I do not worry about accidentally releasing the blade if I have to bear down to cut something. I have even used it as a hammer and the handle has held up beautifully. I have never had a problem with loose screws or knife blade retention. The gut hook works well, especially if you use a new blade. The pocket clip has held up to strenuous operations in the field and in the warehouse without breaking or loosening. The only improvement I would make is a blade storage compartment and they now have one that does that too. Milwaukee has, in my opinion, the best design for any utility knife made. The only way you will ever spend money on another utility knife is if this one is stolen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite far and above my favorite utility knife. i've always been happy with my Milwaukee tools, but this knife has no equal. + locks open AND shut. keeps kids from the blade. + ergo handle works great, gives lots of control to the cut. keeps your hand on the handle and away from the blade. +sturdy, sturdy, sturdy. very little flex, blade play, etc. makes for a good, accurate cut. I bought three and wish i had bought more. Home Depot should be selling these babies in the stores, not just online. the only fault i can find with it is that occasionally i will have my thumb up on the bladed holder and will press the blade release. this happens rarely and many others knives have this same issue. as long as these are still on the market i don't see a need to buy any other single-blade utility knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid. A couple days ago this knife slid down the roof I was working on and fell 30 feet onto the frozen ground. I looked over at my coworker and said "if that survived the fall I will write a review on it". Needless to say the knife works as good as the day I got it!! Amazing quality, and the best utility knife I have ever owned in over ten years of construction! Worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The awesome knife that couldn't cut it...sort of.. I bought this knife because, let's face it, it's really cool looking & I like switchblades! I work in the paper industry & was disappointed only because the small screw on the bottom of the blade holder tore into the tissue before the blade had a chance to cut. That being said, it works fantastic for everything else I've used it for (I make cabinets on the side). The handle fits my hand superbly, opening it is a breeze, the gut hook makes quick work of twine & rope, blade changes are fast & easy! If you want a utility knife that's way cooler than your neighbors, this is it! The first time you flip it open in front of them, they'll turn green with envy! Yet another great Milwaukee tool for your collection!
