Product Reviews

  • "If the Fastback is not available, our next choice is the original Milwaukee 48-22-1901 Fastback. This knife shares many characteristics with our pick—it has the fast one-handed open/close, the comfortable and secure grip area, and the springy belt hook."  --
  • "Simple blade extraction and refill. Locks securely in open or closed position and with the push of one button you can flip it open or flip it closed. It includes a handy wire stripper in the handle as well." –
  • "The blade flips open 3X faster than the typical folding utility knife. You also have the convenience of being able to change the blade without having to use tools. The Fastback also has in integrated gut hook, making it very useful for cutting wires and small things. It also has a wire stripper." –
  • "Many folding utility knives claim one-handed opening, few truly deliver, especially with the style of the Fastback II. You just thumb the release switch and flick your wrist. The blade flies out and locks, ready for action." --
