Dewalt recently announced a selection of new knives. Some are folding pocket knives, which we’ll talk about separately, and there’s a single new utility knife, DWHT10916.
The new Dewalt DWHT10916 is described as being a fixed folding utility knife. In other words, it has a fixed non-retractable blade.
The new utility knife has a pushbutton blade change mechanism, internal spare blae storage, a lanyard hole, and integrated belt clip.
Dewalt says that it has a durable aluminum housing, making it the right tool for even the toughest jobsites.
ETA: Summer 2018
The last Dewalt folding knife I remember using is their retractable folding knife from a few years ago (reviewed here). There’s a quite-slim Stanley folding utility knife. I like the idea of folding retractable knives, but in practice, I think I prefer the smaller size of simpler folding knives. For retractables, there are very many non-folding utility knives to choose from.
I’m eager to see what improvements this new Dewalt utility knife might offer compared to the other folding utility knives I’ve been using, most notable Milwaukee’s FastBack knife series.
