Now there's a knife that lets you change the blade up to 5x faster - without having to use any additional tools. Well, that and the fact that it has side sliding blade activation, which means the chances that the blade will be exposed accidentally go way down. Pretty nifty feature for a knife, wouldn't you say? It also stores up to 5 blades at once in the 6-3/4" handle and includes a handy wire stripper, good for stripping up to a 10-gauge wire - two more ways this knife helps eliminate down time on the job. The gripping area is 1-1/2" x 1". Finally, a rubber over mold increases comfort and reduces hand slippage. Which sort of brings us back to that whole finger thing again... Imported.
