The basis of any hand tool kit - a working selection of sharp utility knives is essential for tasks large and small. A utility knife crafted by one of the top brands here will help you achieve precise incisions with control, even whilst working with heavy-duty materials. A folding knife or sliding retractable knife ensures safe storage without compromising on performance, while high tech features included on a Stanley knife, or an Irwin piece - like blade clamps or blade change mechanisms, help to improve ease of use.
