Press release date: March 4, 2010

MILWAUKEE, WI - Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces two utility knives as part of its new line of hand tool products. Designed to increase productivity, the Fastback(TM) Utility Knife and Sliding Utility Knife come fully featured and offer unmatched durability.

Designed to activate the blade 3X faster than a 2-handed opening, the Fastback(TM) Utility Knife features a 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. 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.

Activated by a side sliding mechanism rather than a cumbersome top button, the Sliding Utility Knife also features a tool free blade change and wire stripper for increased efficiency. Complete with rubber over mold to increase comfort and reduce hand slippage, the new tool also includes on board blade storage to avoid looking for blades on the job and is designed to fit in a tool pouch for added convenience. The new utility knives are among the first in a line of hand tools Milwaukee® will launch in April. Additional innovative tools in the saw, knife and driver categories will follow later this year. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the new tools confirm Milwaukee's commitment to best-in-class durability.
