Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best utility knife I have ver used! I have been an electrician for 15+ years, as well as an avid DIYer, and outdoor enthusiast and have not found a better knife. It is handy, ergonomic, quick to open with the flick of a wrist. One of the best features and also its worst is the belt clip. The clip is fairly large making it easy to put the knife in your pocket, and unlike many others DOES NOT tear up my pants. Downside is that it is easy to catch on things, bending it and after about a year in my case, finally broke from fatigue. I truly wish Milwaukee would add an extra clip to the pack. October 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Blade falls out Initally I liked the knive and enjoyed the quick open function. However, having only owned this for a few months and exchanged 2-3 blades I find it failing. I have just installed a new (sharp) blade and find I can't even slice up a cardboard sheet. As I cut the blade pulls out of the knife. I presumed it may be dirty so I disassembled the section that holds the blade - swapped the spring still - and reassembled the knife. Same problem!! A knife is worthless if the blade never stays. I didn't buy this because it looks cool. I bought it for function. June 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fastback utility knife by Milwaukee tool I'm an apprentice electrician. I use the knife all the time. It's one of those tools you always have on you. I've had mine for over a year and a half now so I guess it doesn't really owe me anything but I've had the screws fall out on me a couple of times. This time one is gone for good. The knife itself works great, however the screws are a pain as they loosen with use and when loose prevent the knife from closing smoothly. If it came with a package of extra screws it would be wonderful. Definitely using lock tight on my next fastback knife. February 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by flimsy belt clip for heavy duty knife I really like the ease of opening. It is comfortable in you pocket. Gotten to the point I don't feel it anymore. Really like the design of the finger holds. Allows you to cut tough materials without losing grip. My only complaint is that the wire belt clip bends easily if it gets caught on something. Being in construction I am climbing on and in between things all the time. I have had the belt clip get caught multiple times and bend. Finally it broke. The other knives I own usually come out of my pocket if they get caught without bending the belt clip. If this knife had a stronger belt clip it would get five stars. What is worse is that the package says lifetime guarantee but you have to send it to a warranty center which will cost more than what a new one costs. If you order a clip it is a $1.90 for the clip plus $5 service fee plus shipping- really? December 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Best utility knife I own . I can trash all the other brands.... December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Utility knife I''ve used to date I search for quality & craftsmanship in almost all products I buy, rarely do I write reviews unless I feel a product truly deserves it. I'm a cabinet installer, I've tried most knives available and use them for altering and carving panels, shimms, stock, trim, moldings etc.. This knife fills the niche wonderfully, best precision and control I've seen, when I'm up on the step ladder setting my cabinets I can operate it w/ one hand unlike other knives. Also, I prefer this model over the Fastback2 because it's thinner, and I can wield it w/ more precision for those fine cuts. October 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great knife but release button faulty i have had this knife for over a year now. with many times using it. i have found now that over the last 2 months the release button tends to get stuck alot. requires a bit of force to get it down. my knife is not rusty. still in great condition. this is the only flaw with this knife. was used in a warehouse. i like to use gold blades with it. they tend to last longer then traditional blades.
