    Stumbled across this at a hardware store, marked down from $14.97 to $9.99.

    Milwaukee Lockback Pocket Knife

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    3" stainless (unknown) steel blade, and no-slip handles. Fulls steel liners and strong lockup.

    What caught my eye, as a southpaw, is that the blade is nail nicked on both sides. The pocket clip isn't reversible though. Razor sharp, absolutely ZERO blade play in the lock, and just a sturdy solidly built knife.

    I've been using it for a couple weeks EDC, and it's cut heavy boxes and various other stuff, and it's holding its edge well.

    Nice toolbox beater, glove box knife for sure.

    I'll have to try one. There is a large Depot for Home products that has them at that price as well.

    The hawkbill fastback is a good knife too, also about $10 or $15, can't remember. The fastback razor knives are pretty good too.

    By the way, you might find that pocket clip loosen up. I modified mine to use a more traditional belt clip, that wire one bends really easy and doesn't seem to stay very tight, my only complaint about them is the clip.

    Dimensions?
    I’m interested but live so far, and the shipping is definitely more than the knife price. :oops::oops::oops:

    It's nice to see a good review on them. I have looked at them but didn't buy because I hadn't heard anything about them.

    Being susceptible to peer pressure, I ordered one on the interweb for $14.95. Its worth $5 for me to not take a trip to the Big Box store.

    I just picked up a couple of these Milwaukee Lockback knife on close out for $3.95. At that price I’ll use them as throwaways on trips.

    I've got one of the fast back razor knives with the button lock. Great little utility knife. Aluminum handles take a beating but don't rust. The blade change system doesn't involve any levers or knurled knobs, just a little button you push and you're done. At the time they only had the ones with the line cutter in the handle but it doesn't work well for me. If I had it to do over I'd get the smaller model without the hook cutter. Great though. This and my Leatherman are pretty much all I need.

    I've got the hawk bill fastback it's a fun little cheap beater, all though I would prefer a detent over that closed button lock and would love to know the steel, any one have a clue on steel type??
