MADI’s BrushBlade lineman’s knife combines two tools into one and helps linemen decrease outages, minimize open neutrals and bad connections, and create significant savings by properly brushing conductors. 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 right and the built-in nonconductive snap ring for easy storage.
It is more efficient and significantly safer than knives currently available. BrushBlade is safer because the blade can be closed when not in use; locks in the open position, preventing accidental closing; has a blunt tip; and features a blade back design that discourages scraping the aluminum conductors.
