Looks like you have the Milwaukee Pex tube cutter. Please BE CAREFUL!!! I returned mine to the store and made Milwaukee aware of the extreme hazard caused by the corner of the sharp blade protruding from the tool when in the closed position. You can literally slice your finger. Other manufacturers totally enclose the blade when the tool is closed. This is a major design flaw.
