I love the knife and so far I only have one issue with it. As a righthanded person I would like to be able to just draw the knife from my belt with my right hand in one motion. But as the belt clip is mounted on upside of the knife i first have to flip the knife once in my hand before a can make my desired motion. If they instead had mounted the beltclip on the tail of the knife this would be much smoother.
I bought the 1500 and the 1502 but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone. They feel cheap in hand; the blades are loose which, when cutting, makes it feel like the blades going to release. The biggest problem is that THEY DON'T LOCK AT A 45° angle. If any of the stores around me had a 1903 I'd trade both these in immediately. I buy Milwaukee everything, for the most part but I'd hold off and just find an older version.
The knife was given to me as a gift. Using it a lot around the house. Got all features except two: scoring function and tape holder. I wish this was further explained on the website.
Really like the product but my replacement blades are not working with this knife. It would be nice if I could just put any replacement blade.
I would recommend the blade if the replacement blades were easier to locate.
Blade won’t stay Locked in place. Spent close to 20 bucks on this thing and tried several blades and none will stay locked in. home depot will not honor warranty even though it’s lifetime...would just like knife replaced with a new one from Milwaukee.
