Milwaukee Tool Corporation expanded its hand tool offering with the new Fastback II Utility Knife.
The company says the design was influenced by jobsite research and requests to include blade storage for added convenience. The Fastback II has features of the Original Fastback Utility Knife, with the addition of magnetic blade storage that folds into the handle for accessibility.
Designed to activate the blade faster than a two-handed opening, the Fastback II Utility Knife features a Press & Flip-one handed blade opening for easy activation. In addition, a tool-free blade change allows for fast and efficient adjustments, while a thin body design makes it easy for a user to store the knife in their pocket. The new magnetic blade storage will hold one spare blade at a time to keep the profile of the blade as slim as possible.
An integrated gut hook and wire stripper also increase utility by allowing the user to make cuts without exposing the blade and eliminates the need to look for another tool to accomplish the task at hand. When the Fastback II is not in use, a wire form belt clip attaches to pockets without tearing up material.
