The new IRWIN Folding Utility Knife Series with BladeLock Technology has been engineered to keep the utility blade securely locked in the knife handle to offer enhanced safety to the modern tradesman.

IRWIN's unique design addresses the most frequently cited frustration and safety hazard; when blades accidentally pull out of the handle during use. IRWIN's BladeLock Technology further improves safety by providing the user with the ability to change blades only when the release button is engaged and the blade holder is in the 45° open position.

Each of the new folding utility knives has a liner lock for safe, one-handed operation and a 16° cutting angle for ultimate comfort and control - as well as distinct user benefits. Whether you need the compact durability of the FK100, the built-in blade storage of the FK150, or the durability of the FK250 with fold out screwdriver, there is a knife for every job.

Three New Models: Durable, Compact and Designed for Efficiency and Comfort.

Designed with a rugged and robust feel, the new IRWIN FK100 with BladeLock Technology features a compact, durable body design that is lightweight and compact. Comfortable in the hand, pocket or on the belt, the FK100 has a built-in wire stripper, cast finger grooves and trigger-grip handle for greater control.

The IRWIN FK150 with BladeLock Technology is a no-nonsense, rugged folding utility knife designed with built-in blade storage that holds up to two blades, for quick, on-the-job blade changes. The compact and durable design fits comfortably in the hand, pocket or on the belt. With cast finger grooves and trigger-grip handle, it delivers maximum durability, reliability, and is easy to use.

For the tradesman who needs a superior utility knife and quick access to his most commonly used screwdriver bits without the bulk of a multi-tool, IRWIN has incorporated a foldout screwdriver for 1in insert bits into the new IRWIN FK250 with BladeLock Technology. For added convenience, the FK250 includes built-in blade storage and an additional insert bit storage compartment. It also delivers maximum durability and versatility and is designed with cast finger grooves and trigger grip handle for optimal control.
