I'm just looking an EDC I dont have to sharpen, this is perfect!! Thx for the review. I'm gonna get the keychain mesuringtape too.

Milwaukee way over rated made in China now had fast back and fast back 2. screws came loose on both blade holder give up in one of them. milwaukee cool fast open but for build quality i iriwin fk150

I love this knife. I cut a lot of shrink wrap everyday and having that exposed blade on the back side without opening the knife is my favorite part. My last box cutter had a second blade like that, but only the main blade was replaceable. Now I don't have to buy a new knife every time it goes dull.

Pretty late comment, you may not even have the same job anymore, but they just came out with a 3rd version of this knife which now can also lock at 45°

I bought one from my local hardware store. I work in the construction industry mainly warehouse general operation, I like this utility knife it works pretty nice.
Buy it now! Great general purpose knife.

I have had problems wile cutting in tight areas the blade release gets bumped easy and your blade falls out its nice that the blade is off to one side witch would make scraping somthing on the flat side easy but the button is also on that side

I was hoping it would open by itself by pushing the button. But I guess that would be considered illegal here, be in the automatic knife category I'm assuming. Oh well.

FYI, clown… the "roofing" blades are "hook blades".. just like the package says. You might want to look into carpet blades… round end and very sharp.  Short of that, you might be better off with the plastic scissors made for left handed kids.. they seem pretty safe as well.

"One handed opening"?  Is there a utility knife that requires 2 hands to operate? I bought one, and it's ok, but the clip is ass backwards for right handed users to clip.

I just bought one of these knives not an hour ago and while I haven't really had a chance to put it though it's paces I am looking forward to absolutely destroying some boxes and maybe a few envelopes for fun.
Also, I was thinking about getting the Fastback 2 instead, but I haven't read or heard enough about it to warrant paying another $5 for a built-in spare blade holder. Any chance of reviewing that?

A real review! Not an overview labeled a review- an honest-to-goodness review. Refreshing. Your speaking skills are above average, too, which helps a ton.
