IRWIN Industrial Tool Company Introduces New Series of Folding Utility Knives with Proprietary BladeLock Technology
Jun 10 13
IRWIN Industrial Tool Company introduced Folding Utility Knife Series with patented BladeLock Technology -- the FK100, FK150, and FK250. Recognized for its "best-in-class" design attributes, the FK Series is durable, compact, and easy-to-use. The IRWIN(R) FK Series delivers unparalleled user safety, durability, and comfort. IRWIN's proprietary design addresses the most frequently cited user frustration -- when blades accidentally pull out of the handle during use. 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 45deg open position. Each of the new folding utility knives has a liner lock for safe, one-handed operation and a 16deg cutting angle for ultimate comfort and control. No other folding knife offers this level of blade security and user safety. 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 new 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 of the FK150 fits comfortably in the hand, pocket or on the belt. The FK150 has cast finger grooves, trigger-grip handle and 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 integrated a foldout screwdriver for 1" insert bits into the new IRWIN FK250 with BladeLock Technology. For added convenience and customization, the FK250 includes built-in blade storage and an additional insert bit storage compartment. The FK250 delivers maximum durability and versatility and is designed with cast finger grooves and trigger grip handle for optimal control. The new FK Series handles are backed by IRWIN's Lifetime Guarantee. The FK100, FK150 and FK250 are now available at hardware stores, construction and industrial tool distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada and the MSRP ranges from $10.99 to $15.99.
