Up to 12 months interest free
It folds, it cuts, it hangs on your belt and best of all… it’s blue. Perfect for the shop, garage, toolbox or saddlebag. The UK-1 is a combination of aluminum and stainless steel and uses readily available hardware store utility knife blades. It also features a secure, quick-change blade system that locks open. The Park Tool Utility Knife uses a locking blade. Pull the blade fully open and it will click into a locked position. The body of the knife has an indentation adjacent to the locking mechanism. At this point, push the locking mechanism away from the blade and push the knife blade closed.
The Park Tool Utility Knife uses a standard utility knife blade. To change the blade, open the knife fully. Push the knurled knob above the blade, pushing from the logo side of the knife. Pull the blade and remove it. Reverse the process to install a new blade.
About Park Tool
It seems everything was simpler in 1956 and bicycles were no exception. A common day of repairs consisted of a few flat tires, a broken spoke and possibly a coaster brake hub overhaul. As the 1960s arrived, so did caliper brakes, shifting systems, and lightweight components. One problem surfaced along with these complicated new parts. No tools!
One of the first time-savers they invented was a stand that held the bike off the ground allowing easy, back saving access to any part of the bike. This original stand was put together using legs from a dining room table, an empty shell casing and a truck axle from a 37 Ford. As other shops, and eventually Schwinn Bicycle Company, saw the stand in action, requests were made for a production model. Park Tool Company was born!
The line grew quickly to include a wheel truing stand, more repair stands including a double arm shop version, wrenches gauges, fixtures and consumer tools soon joined the company's offerings. The retail side of the business also grew earning Top Ten Schwinn dealer status fifteen years in a row including number one overall in 1977.
Our history says a lot about who we are and what we do. We still solve problems ourselves and we still insist on a "hands-on" philosophy of invention, testing, and production. The sixty employees of Park Tool take great pride in building the best bicycle tools in the world. Since that first stand, we've built hundreds of thousands more, reaching bike shops worldwide. Since the first hand tool, we've built millions more and our line now includes over 400 different items and a recent history of fifteen to twenty new product introduced each year.
In April of 2013 we celebrated our 50th anniversary and moved into our fourth location, an 80,000 square foot facility built specifically for us.
