The Modern RooferTM is very versatile and will accomodate all Modern replacement blades.   It is constructed of heavy gauge zinc plated steel to prevent corrosion.

The Modern RooferTM Knife and U-102TM blade were invented and patented in 1939 by the founder of the Modern Specialties Company.  The original specifications are still in use today.  The careful design and meticulous manufacture prevent any rotation of the blade when the knife is in use.  Extra blades are stored in the tight Modern RooferTM handle which does not allow the stored blades to slip out and cut the user.  These genuine products are sold throughout the United States.

Such injuries cannot happen with the Modern RooferTM because the two sides of the handle fit tightly together whether or not there is a blade in the end.  The blade in use is firmly held in the end slot by the special bolt and washer design.

Whenever you see a knife for sale that looks like the Modern RooferTM, but without a blade in the end, look out because it is an unsafe counterfeit knife!  These knives are even distributed by one company and private labeled for others. 

Similarly, the handles of the painted, (often yellow), knockoffs also do not fit together, allowing blades stored in the handle to slip out or the end blade to rotate and cut the user.  Both of these types of knockoff knives are poorly made, over priced, and dangerous to use.

Knockoff roofer knife, beware! Dangerous knockoff knives.

Our blades are made of steel having a higher carbon content than others that makes them longer lasting and sharper, and feature a unique cut, which out performs the knockoffs.  Remember not all blades are the same.

Not all blades are the same!
