    Now i know what you are talking about. I am not sure what i think about that blade, looks as though it may be a little uncomfortable in the hand under pressure. But it gets my vote just for being a utility knife made from Ti, have not had the pleasure of owning one yet. Infact if the price is correct i doubt i ever will.

    The brand is Dexter, sold in Leroy Merlin stores. I believe the model is "Couteau 2 lames 180mm"

    I have a Rexford RUT, can't see wanting to use it in a warehouse all day, but it is a cool little knife, I will throw some pics up later.

    That would be awesome mate, I just have one question regarding this blade. Can it take any utility blade? Otherwise I agree, it does look well engineered. And who can dislike something that looks that nice made from Ti?!!!

    My vote is the fastback 2. I use utility blades a lot at work and home as well.

    Use these utility knives exclusively at work - have used a bunch of them over the years.
    EAB husky, superknife, craftsman etc.
    Thanks for this pic- this is one of the best ones Ive used.

    is the fastback 2, the one that can hold blades onboard, or is it the knife with the proper blade, that cannot be replaced?

    :unsure: I should have told you that one is in the BST right now. I like it, it just doesn't get carried enough by me.

    in his picture it is the red milwaukee. I believe the pic is the original fastback though. The fastback 2 has replaceable blades and holds an extra blade.

    I use the same Dewalt folder (DW10035) pictured, having tried various others in the past (Klein, Irwin, Husky, Greenlee, Craftsman). The main advantage the Dewalt has over all the others I've tried is the quality control and balance (very solidly constructed with no body flex or cheap-o action), but most importantly is the fact that when opened, the blade remains retracted. I find myself using the DW10035 almost exclusively one-handed on my jobs, and being able to have it safely at the ready until I actually need the blade is key. How do you like the Dewalt? Do you recommend any others that have these same qualities?

    I would have to say that you would be right. If you are after a safe knife that offers many advantages over others, then you could not go past the Dewalt. It holds spare blades, has a wire stipper and is retractable. It works well one handed, and the construction of this knife is very solid and reliable. I think it came with a Lifetime warranty, may have to check that. The Fatmax Stanley is right next to it in the pic, is the exact same knife minus the brand. My pic out of the lot is the Irwin FK250, has a wire stripper, holds spare blades, carrys a driver bit holder that is interchangeable, plus has a carriage on board for another bit like a hex key or allen driver bit. This is very handy, for my line of work, almost as handy has a regular MT. It also has a liner lock, which works well one handed, it is not retractable though. I do not use it as much these days because i carry a Leatherman at work, aswell as a SAK, i just needed a good, hardworking utility knife. That is why i EDC a Kincrome at work, has a a great Blade lock mech and a nice Alox style finish. What more do you need? My last Kincrome was a great knife too, it carried spare blades and had a nice rubbery thumb pad for extra pressure when cutting thick material, that would have to be my only neg about the current version, no thumb pad. But that is not a real downside, given how well this knife can perform without it.

    Nice collection! I heard that front-loading folders tend to lock up after time. Is that true? I'd really like one but am hesitant.
