A good knife
Overall a real good solid knife. Holds the blade really firm, little play in the folding mechanism.

Only real flaw is case screws that loosened up after some use, and require a tiny, special screwdriver bit which I don't have and have never seen.

I'd suggest to Milwaukee that they put a little LokTite on those screws, or supply the bit needed to tighten the screws.

AWESOME KNIFE - BIG FAN!
I love the design that allows you to cut string and things like that with out even opening the knife. As an electrician,I use it everyday, and everyone I show it to wants one. The opening mechanism is not only fast, it is very smooth as well. best knife in its class hands down!

Same Fine Quality As Always!
I plan to buy 2 more as Christmas gifts. I use the knife in my job as apartment maintenance manager. I love the way the knife opens safely and quickly. Would be nice if it had some kind of storage for extra blades.

Best utility knife I've ever used
I've been installing floor covering, hard and soft, for 35 years. This is the best utility knife I've ever used. Many of the quick-change designs don't hold the blade well, or the release button is placed so it can be activated while cutting, causing the blade to slip out. Some knives just wear out quickly from daily use. This knife can be opened and closed one-handed, it locks solidly in place, and the blades don't fall out.

One caveat - get a micro Phillips head screwdriver, and lock the tiny screws in place with some clear nail polish.

Extremely well-designed knife
The locking mechanism design is similar to my $400 Chris Reeves and $200 Benchmade folders and every bit as sturdy and smooth-acting. EASILY open and close with one hand. I use the Milwaukee Fastback for utility tasks and save my custom knives for finer work, field dressing, etc. The blade change mechanism is safe, simple, and requires no tools. If the knife had on-board spare blade storage, it would be as perfect as could be expected.
