Milwaukee Fastback Line Adds New Utility, Spring Assisted, and Folding Knives
Milwaukee announced that they’ve gone and deepened their line of popular Fastback knives. The new Fastback knives carry on with the features that make the lineup so popular, and the new additions also incorporate some improvements to the line that the brand hopes will provide users with a more comfortable, practical EDC.
Milwaukee Fastback New Additions
Milwaukee Fastback Utility Knives
Utility knives have been a standard part of the Fastback experience, but Milwaukee has rolled out their new models with some enhancements to improve functionality. Improved, durable wire belt clips reduce pocket tearing, and they’ve designed the new knives with lanyard holes for easy tethering.
The quick-change function now exists at the back of the knife, and they’ve added a metal extension to prevent accidental blade removal. All Milwaukee Fastback utility knives now come equipped with a blade holder designed for scoring.
The Milwaukee Fastback Fixed Blade Utility Knife joins the expansion as an all-new model. It features all the aforementioned improvements and also includes all-metal construction with onboard blade storage that can store up to 5 replacement blades.
The Milwaukee Fastback utility knife lineup still includes a Compact Folding utility knife, a folding utility knife, a folding utility knife with extra storage, a side slide utility knife, and a self-retracting utility knife.
Milwaukee Fastback Pocket Knives
Pocket knives are some of our favorites Milwaukee Fastback products from year to year. New models rolling out include enhanced features to increase the durability of the knives along with your own productivity.
All Fastback pocket knives will continue to have press-and-flip opening designs for fast, one-handed opening. Stainless steel is still a must here, and the new knives will also include a wire belt clip and a lanyard hole.
For new products, Milwaukee is opening up the Fastback pocket knife line a bit. Now, their standard pocket knives will include a manual opening camo model and the Hawkbill folder will include a blunt tip version.
Moving into multitools is the new Milwaukee Fastback 5-in-1 Folding Knife. This bad boy comes with a partially serrated blade, a folding 1/4″ bit holder, reversible Phillips and flathead bits, and a bottle opener.
Milwaukee Fastback Spring-Assisted Knives
While there aren’t any new models coming to the spring-assisted line, Milwaukee has upgraded these knives with a secure, easy-to-operate slide lock. They still feature durable springs for easy one-handed opening and partially serrated stainless steel blades.
All of the Milwaukee Fastback knives come with a limited lifetime warranty. Look for the updated utility knives to hit stores starting in November, and the others to release in January 2020.
