Milwaukee 11-Piece Utility Kit

milwaukee_utility_knife_set.jpgWe were at Home Depot the other day and saw this item sitting on the shelves. It's sort of a slicing, dicing, cutting extravaganza. The system consists of a handle and a number of different blades that can click into it, like a recip saw chuck.

The blades are...

  • Quik-Lok Job Saw
  • Hunting Knife Blade
  • Linoleum Knife Blade
  • Grout Raker Blade
  • Carbide Grout Blade
  • Putty Knife
  • Utility Blade
  • Wavy Knife Blade
  • Straight Knife Blade
  • Paint Scraper Blade
  • Roofer's Blade

Useful stuff, at least the ones we understand (wavy knife blade?) and it looks like a nice way to save some space in the tool bag. The kit comes with a case to keep things nice and organized. It costs about $45 which seems a little pricey for blades that are going to wear out. It's not uncommon that we go through five or six utility blades in a day. Then again, if you bought all of these blades on separate tools, it would cost plenty more than $45, so it depends on how you look at things....

interesting,seems like a throwback tool of sorts. I had this old electrical book from the 50's that showed a stanley knife that took all sorts of blades, drywall holesaw,linoleum utility, hook,etc, nowadays I only see hook and the common utility blade in stores, with the quick change feature now common, I'm surprise stanley doesnt offer more blades.
