Anyone who carries a razor knife for work and pocket knife for everything else can appreciate the idea of combining the two into a single easy-to-carry tool. But most attempts to do so result in a bulky, uncomfortable product that doesn’t really address either need. The good news: Stanley recently updated their version, and it’s a dramatic improvement.

As you can see from the photo, it’s quite a bit smaller than most razor/blade combo knives, which means you can actually carry it in a pocket without everyone making “or are you just happy to see me” jokes. And its curved form fits your hand reasonably well in both razor and knife mode.

Look for a hands-on with the Sport Utility here soon.

    I’m a HUGE fan of the quickslide knife. This revision looks like it might have its benefits, but the prices I’m seeing are about double that of the razor-only version (~$16).

    Oooh. I have 2 Kershaw knives, one is an assisted opening one (otherwise known as a switch blade, but mine isn’t illegal) and a regular 2 1/2″ blade thumb-flip knife. I also own a Leatherman I carry around in my pocket and I use a razor blade for work all the time. This tool is very very cool. Does anyone know where it’s made?

    And for the knife, does it require two-handed opening? In other words, is there a lever on the bottom that needs pushed in in order to open the blade? I would only buy it if it’s one-handed opening.

    Last question. Is it leftie or rightie? The notch for the thumb–what side is it on? Makes a big difference if you need to get your knife open quickly and you’re left-handed.

    I had one and lost it on a job. Where can I get a new one? -nobody in my area sells them anymore.
