Over at Home Depot, they have one of the best Milwaukee Fastback utility knife “Special Buy” bundles that I ever recall seeing.
This bundle comes with 2 knives and a blade pack.
Milwaukee Fastback utility knife. This looks to be their non-blade-storage model, which is still one of my favorites due to its size, convenience, and durability. It retails for $10 at Home Depot.
Milwaukee 50-count general purpose blades with dispenser. Our friends over at Tool Nut have this blade pack for $12. These are standard blades, made in the USA.
So that’s $31 worth of knives and blades. The bundle is on sale for $15 as a “Special Buy.”
Milwaukee runs promos on Fastback knives a couple of times each year. I’d expect to see the two utility knives bundled together for $15. Or either of the knives plus the 50-count blade pack. But all three? That makes this an extremely appealing deal.
I have too many utility knives, some of which I haven’t misplaced yet. But I’ll likely be buying this pack during my next trip to HD.
And as mentioned in my How do you dispose of dull utility knife blades post, I recently bought a 50-pack of excellent Dewalt carbide utility knife blades that’s still very full.
I think I see what’s going on here. Home Depot and Milwaukee thought they could put together a Fastback bundle so good that everyone would visit their local store or HomeDepot.com to buy one. Fastback users would buy more of their favorite knives, and non-Fastback users would give the brand a try. Well, good try, it’s going to work.
