Stanley 99E Utility Knife – Best. Bladed. Tool. Ever.
Yes, everyone has a favorite knife or tool. For your grandfather it was probably a pocketknife— a Schrade, a Case, or a Camillus. For your father it might have been a Swiss Army Knife. A multi-functional tool, like a Leatherman, can satisfy many needs. However, it’s really hard to compete with the Stanley 99E. From its inception in 1936, the 99E began as a fixed blade (No. 199) and later morphed into a retractable blade (No. 99E). For less than $5.00, you can’t beat it.
