New RapidShark(R) from Rapid Tools Takes a Bite Out of Your Work.

BURLINGTON, Ontario -- The multifunction RapidShark[R] is two professional tools encased in one sleek, rugged hand tool. It is the only tool that combines a professional utility knife with a quality wire stripper, cutter and crimper, so the user gets twice as much done with one tool, for one low price. The Shark's knife and wire stripper are combined in an ergonomic design that's about the size of a standard knife. The RapidShark is the winner of the prestigious Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics, given at the May 2008 National Hardware Show (NHS). The RapidShark includes five Rapid Edge[R] patented, serrated blades. Its pliers-like grip for the wire stripper locks securely into the body of the knife when not in use. It's spring loaded for easy opening and comfortable cutting, with five precision-ground stripping holes for easily removing insulation. RapidShark features:

* First and only tool to combine a utility knife with a wire stripper

* Patents pending worldwide

* Two sizes - 10-18 AWG and the Big Bite[TM] 6-12 AWG

* Rugged, professional-grade construction for durability

* Pliers-style, wire-stripper grip locks securely into the knife body

* Spring-loaded wire cutter opens easily, cuts comfortably

* Precision ground stripping holes, wire cutter and crimper

* One-button, quick blade change is easy, saves time

* Four-blade storage compartment opens wide for easy access

The RapidShark is one of only 13 products to receive the Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics, the most coveted honor at the NHS. Testers for the prestigious Handyman Club of America gave the RapidShark a 97% approval rating, awarding it both the "Tested & Recommended" and "Contractor Tested & Recommended" seals. Consumers have been nearly unanimous in praising the tool, summed up by James Welch in Kansas: "The overall usefulness of [the RapidShark] is without equal." In the US, the Rapid Shark is available at Lowe's, Ace Hardware and Amazon.com. In Canada, the RapidShark is available exclusively from Home Hardware. It sells for under $25.
