Rapid Warrior Combo Knife
Rapid Tools likes to give their knives somewhat aggressive names. First there was the Shark and now there's the Warrior (stay tuned for their next release, the Armageddon). Like the multi-function Shark, the Warrior is designed to do much more than the standard utility knife. This is done with its ability to not only accept standard utility blades, but to take recip saw blades as well. With this feature, your knife can now be transformed into a mini-hacksaw, a drywall knife, or even a little branch pruner.
We like the looks of this tool quite a bit. With all of the items competing for space in our tool bag, anything that can take the place of more than one item looks like a potential winner. And we would happily get rid of our old drywall knife too. We hardly ever use it, but feel the need to keep it around for those rare occasions when it's essential.
The Warrior will be available with both fixed and folding bodies. Included with it will be five serrated utility blades, a drywall saw blade, an 8" saw blade, and a 6" hacksaw blade. The whole package will retail for about $20. It's not a bad price when you consider the astronomical price of recip saw blades.
