New Milwaukee Hardline Pocket Knives

Milwaukee is adding a new set of Hardline pocket to supplement their existing line of utility, snap blade, and pocket knives. These new Milwaukee Hardline Pocket Knives are said to be designed from the ground up to deliver extreme wear resistance and this is thanks to their D2 steel blade. This extremely hard steel is used for the most demanding jobs, and is said to allow the blade to hold its edge longer, providing extreme wear resistance under the toughest use, reducing the user’s need to sharpen. Each knife features a stone washed black oxide finish that provides rust protection.


The opening mechanism uses a a flipper with bearing system for quick and easy one handed opening and the Milwaukee Hardline Pocket Knives feature a steel frame lock that is said to provide a strong secure hold during use. Also adding to the versatility of each knife is a handy dandy belt clip which can be placed on either side of the knife for righty’s or lefty’s.

There will be 4 models available at launch with their launch just around the corner in July 2016. All models include the above mentioned features and with a price point between $59.99-$79.99. The price point and features put them above the current Milwaukee hand tool knives food chain and will sell along the other models such as their ever popular Fastback models. The new Hardline models include:
