Earlier today, I posted about the large number of utility knives that Craftsman has come out with this year. I counted 17 utility knives and 2 folding pocket knives, but there could be more!
How about we play a game?
Which are my favorite utility knives right now? I’ll give you just one hint – they are red with black accents.
Here’s a look at our past utility knife coverage, if you’re interested.
Are you ready to guess?
The Milwaukee slide-out utility knife! I use this most-often, and for good reason – it’s easy to open, quick to close, and provides a great user experience. After several years with it, I can’t think of anything bad to say about it. The rubbery grip material over the blade storage door wears and tears over time, but the knife is so fantastic to use that I don’t mind.

As far as compact and folding utility knives go, I have been favoring the Milwaukee FastBack Compact more and more.
See, I told you that my favorite utility knives were red and black! The leading photo was an obvious red herring I’m sure many of you saw through, but hopefully I caught some of you unguarded.
I still can’t believe how many different Craftsman utility knife options there are! I bought two during the holiday season (along with a couple of new Craftsman tape measures), but they’re currently sitting in a box of utility knives going back a few years that also still need to be tested.
What’s your favorite utility knife? Knives?
