Utility Knives

The blade of a folding utility knife is tucked into the handle for secure transportation and storage. Because only one corner of the blade is exposed while in operation, it may be flipped to a new cutting edge when the original one becomes dull. Pull cuts are made using utility knives that have short, disposable blades attached to the handle. They cut cardboard, plastic sheeting, card stock, wire, and other materials, as well as score drywall and insulation.
