WOOD magazine review

Tool-free blade changes make this a top utility knife

Review Summary

I use a utility knife frequently for everything from opening boxes of new tools to test, to marking dovetails and mortises, to various DIY wiring, plumbing, and other repair jobs around the house. And Milwaukee’s side-slide knife is my favorite. The blade extends and retracts easily with a quick flick of the thumb, and you’re less likely to accidentally retract it during use the way you can with top-slide knives.
The knife uses standard utility-knife blades, and has tool-free blade changes: Simply extend the blade, hold in the release button, and either flip the blade end for end or replace with a new one. You can also store up to five blades in the handle. Another nice feature: You can strip electrical wire up to 10-gauge in the slot near the front. —Tested by Bob Hunter, Tools Editor
