C.H. Hanson Speedrocker SS

hanson_speedrocker.jpgC.H. Hanson is about to release yet another inventive little tool. It's called the Speedrocker SS and it's simply a utility knife designed with the specific purpose of cutting sheetrock and blueboard.

What makes it unique is a little tape measure slot directly above the blade. You just hook the tape in and cut away, always cutting the board at the desired line (or at least close enough for sheetrock). The knife looks little enough to easily fit in a pocket or any tool belt (we can't tell if the blade is fully retractable), but it is designed so that when your thumb is holding the tape measure in, it is also applying direct pressure on the knife blade, making for an easy cut.

hanson_speedrocker1.jpgThe tool has on board blade storage and comes with three blades. It's not yet released, so we don’t know how much it will cost, but of you do a lot of board hanging, whatever the price is, it'll probably be worth it.
