 DEWALT Folding Retractable Utility Knife DWHT10035


The DEWALT® Folding Retractable Utility Knife (DWHT10035)looks interesting.   I personally use two fixed blade utility knives and stow them in pockets in my tool bag.  I must admit the DWHT10035 has me wondering if there is a better, safer way.Part of its new line of industrial hand tools.

The DWHT10035 is one of the first hybrid folding retractable utility knives on the market.DEWALT’s folding retractable knife features Rapid Load™ blade change for a quick blade change action, as well as on-board blade storage for up to three blades.

A metal body provides durability while its ergonomic soft grip offers comfort to help reduce fatigue. It also features a built-in twine cutter when the blade is in the retracted position.Complete with a limited lifetime warranty, the DEWALT knife will include three standard size utility blades.

The DEWALT Folding Retractable Utility Knife will be sold at The Home Depot and independent distributors in June 2011. The knife is expected to retail for approximately $9.99.In the next few weeks I hope to get a few of these in my crews hands and see if it works as well as DEWALT claims.  Stay tuned.
