Husky 5pk Multi Color Utility Knife Set

Husky, the Home Depot house brand, has come up with a very nice value-oriented knife package. At this price, the Husky utility knife Multi-Color 5-pack set will give you a knife for every room in your house…or your car…or your shed. You can carry one around with you or store one on your boat. If you’ve got $20 burning a hole in your pocket, it’s going to be hard to walk by the aisle with these staring you in the face.


The Husky utility knife set comes with utility knives in 5 colors: Black, Red, Silver, Blue, and Orange. With the notable exception of green, you can combine them to make about 80% all NFL or college teams colors! The package comes with the five knives, two of which are reduced size for carrying in your pocket or placing in a glove compartment…just don’t take them with you to the airport as they aren’t TSA approved tools. If you want that, hold out for the Leatherman Tread multitool bracelet. The blades on these knives will always be sharp, since you just replace them to once again have a knife at 100% cutting capacity. Replacing blades is simple, in fact. You just push up on the blade release lever located just behind the blade. It’s easy…too easy, in fact. We could see this possibly becoming a problem when sliding into stiff packaging or other materials that might accidentally trigger the release lever when you don’t want it to. There are better systems available (check out the Milwaukee Fastback II utility knife), but it will cost more. If you’re careful, this may not be a significant problem.

The handle on each Husky utility knife is ribbed so that your hand doesn’t slip during use and to keep the blade from swinging out when you unlock it with the button located at the hinge point of the knife. The finish is anodized and so it shouldn’t wear out like a painted finish, though look for the bare aluminum to show through if and when the handles get scratched deep enough.


There is some stiff competition in this tool category, but a 5-pack of knives for under $20 is still a very compelling buy.
