Rapid Shark Utility Knife
A while ago, we told you about the Rapid Edge Utility Knife, a cool little knife with an LED at the blade end. Well, it looks like Rapid Tools is still working on innovating the utility knife because they've just released the new Rapid Shark, a combination utility knife and a wire stripper. This is a good thing. Just ask anyone who has been in a rush and has decided to strip a wire with a razor knife. It's a dumb idea; we've done it and regretted it.
With the Rapid Shark, it should no longer even be a temptation. The Shark has extra blade storage, a quick change blade system, and the capability to strip any wire between 10 and 18 AWG.
We have no idea what this knife is going to cost, but we suspect it's somewhere in the $10 range.
