Fastback Flip-Blade Utility Knife


Fastback Flip-Blade Utility Knife

Cut boards, trim panels, and even strip wires with Milwaukee's® FASTBACK™ Flip Utility Knife. This handy blade, designed to operate efficiently with one hand, has an innovative spring-loaded mechanism that helps speed up your work. It also leaves the other hand free to hold the material in place, handle other tools, or stabilize yourself on a high ladder. This utility knife blade stays sharp cut after cut. When it does finally need to be replaced (by one of the five durable blades that come packaged with the knife), the tool-free blade change makes it a simple process. The Milwaukee Fastback Flip utility knife also includes a gut hook for easily severing ropes and cords. The gut hook doubles as a wire stripper, making this already handy tool even more versatile. The body of the metal utility knife is durable and thin, allowing for convenient pocket storage. With superior functionality and portability, this knife is an obvious choice.

  • Milwaukee utility knife comes with five replacement blades
  • One hand operation makes knife easy to use
  • Tool free blade change speeds up blade swap
  • Guthook severs ropes and wires without opening the blade
  • Strips wires up to 10 gauge
  • Slim body allows for convenient pocket storage
  • Limited lifetime warranty
Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most ergonomic utility knife known to man! Absolutely the most ergonomic utility knife I have ever laid hands upon. Nothing that slides or screws can come close - the deep grips make it profoundly easy to hang on to and to control, in spite of a lack of aggressive jimping or knurled grips. More comfortable in the hand than the (fatter) Fastback 2, and you can store extra blades in your toolbox if you need more. Thumb stud to release the blade from either position works wonderfully, and the blade carrier swings freely, making this the easiest-opening knife I have ever laid fingers upon. If you need a utility knife for anything, there's not a lot of reason to get something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it,BUT... I love this knife, but after a while the blade holder, which is plastic, wears and the blade won't stay in. The button that keeps the blade in needs to be steel, not plastic. I still give it 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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?
