Utility Supplies: BrushBlade—The Lineman's Knife

Utility Supplies BrushBlade Lineman's Knife

MADI has introduced BrushBlade—The Lineman's Knife. Cited to be the first of its kind for utility supplies, BrushBlade combines two tools in one and helps linemen decrease outages, minimize open neutrals and bad connections, and create significant savings by brushing conductors properly.

The two tools are a knife and an integrated wire brush. The wire brush helps clean conductors to make better connections and covers conductors up to 1,000 MCM. This covers most conductors and the wire brush is easily replaceable. Other key features are the reversible thumb stud for quick, one-handed opening from the left or the right and the built-in nonconductive snap ring for easy storage.

It is more efficient and much safer than currently available knives. BrushBlade is safer because the blade can be closed when not in use; locks in the open position, preventing accidental closing; and has a blunt tip and a blade back design that discourages scraping the aluminum conductors.
