As a professional, I depend on my tools to get the job done. I always like to have the best tool for the job, so when I discovered this knife I purchased it immediately. Since I already own several Milwaukee tools, I know what to expect - a great tool that you can depend on. I don't know why it took so long for a "wrist flick" utility knife to be made, but Milwaukee has nailed it. The integrated gut hook, wire stripper, belt clip, and EXTREMELY fast & easy blade swap button push this already great tool over the top to a must-own for professionals. I'll never use another blade again!

Only had it a few days but I like it's size and heft. I particularly like the the cut out which allows me to wrap my index finger and apply pressure w/control. The dreaded tiny torx screws have been upgraded to size 0 phillips. Mine were tight, but I added a drop of blue loctite just to be safe. The surer handling and push button blade change makes it a nice tool.

I have been through dozens and dozens of the cheapo razor knife packs from the big box hardware stores because I thought these knives were essentially disposable; that they would doubtlessly break, rust up, or have the blade change mechanism gum up.

This Milwaukee is still working like brand new after 6 months in the field and a joy to use. The one handed open is amazingly handy and the blade change mechanism(normally the first thing to stop functioning after dirt gets in) is still operating smoothly. One unmentioned feature of this knife is the paint can(or bottle!) opener tab on the front of the handle. Don't bother with the $15 five packs of cheap knives, just get a couple of these and don't worry about your knife breaking anymore.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I thought about creating a video review for this utility knife, but I figured with my luck I'd end up losing a finger. This knife is fantastic though. The pocket clip keeps it right where you need it. The blade lock and heft of the folding blade are perfectly designed for you to flick it open with your wrist. If a spazz like me can do it, anyone can. I don't press my luck when it comes to closing the blade. I release the lock with one hand and fold it with the other.

The knife has some nice design features, like a wire stripping notch and a gut hook. I've used it to strip wires and it works better than I expected. I haven't had a reason to use the gut hook yet though.

My favorite thing about it is the round notch for your index finger. This makes the knife fit perfectly in my hand. There's no chance it could slip from my grip.

My only (small) complaint was the packaging. It was ironic that this thing was packed so tightly in a plastic clamshell that I had to go find another knife to unwrap this knife. I kept thinking, "doggone it - I sure wish there were some way to use this knife to open its own stinking package".

After my ten plus year old Stanley fell apart figured I would try something different.
Glad a chose the Milwaukee, it's one of my favorite tools now.

After reading all the one star reviews about the screws coming loose I figured a little Loctite thread locker would be in order.
I used the green self wicking type, didn't even have to loosen the screws to apply it. The Loctite should hold the screws for the life of the tool. Super glue might work too.
Amazon sells Loctite, one tube would be good for about 400 knifes but I'm sure you folks can find some other loose screws to put it on.

I agree with most of the 5 star ratings, except for one flaw in this otherwise fantastic utility knife. The quick change out mechanism is entirely too close to the blade itself, so when I would use it for work the blade would fall out of the knife whenever I went to cut open the packaging for the huge rolls of paper I work with. This wouldn't happen whenever I cut straight, flat patterns, but going in a circular/vertical direction causes the blade to fall out every time. I tried to take it back to the Depot I bought it at and they do not honor the limited lifetime warranty... another big pain in my butt. For most people I can see this being a great knife, but for what I need a utility knife for it doesn't work.

There is a persistent problem that seems to be plaguing a fair amount of people. That problem is that the screws that hold the blade housing plate (there are 4 of them) fall out.

That issue has plagued both of my knives.

However, I use these knives on a daily basis cutting all sorts of material. They take a lot of abuse. The easy solution is to to use loctite on the threads of the screws or wrap teflon tape around the screws.

You can easily find replacement screws at a computer store, you may get lucky at ace, however I had no luck there.

It is a pain but I like the feel and heft of the knife enough to only dock it 1 star. However, I do own two knives and they both have this problem thus two stars seems appropriate.

I absolutely loved this knife when I first got it. Then I started using it. The 4 little screws that hold the blade cover come loose. So I bought a really small screwdriver to fit the 4 screws. The 4 screws were too easy to strip out. After my 6th month of using this on a daily basis, I noticed that when I have to cut something that takes a little strength, the blade will pull from the holder. I took apart the cover to see what was going on, and there is a small flexible strip of metal that acts sort of like a spring. I guess after a few months of use, the metal has become worn out and won't hold tension on the piece that holds the blade in. I absolutely loved this blade until I realized I can't use it anymore.
