Rescue knives... Login/Join

I’m starting with the local volunteer fire department, something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but finally getting the opportunity to do.

So I want to get a good rescue type knife but I don’t know much about them. I’m thinking of getting the Emerson NSAR, does anybody have that??? I’ve ordeted 2 Emerson’s in the last week so I’m starting to get the Emerson sickness, are there other good options out there???

Thanks!

I don't have experience with it, but when I saw your post it was the first knife I thought of.

It's a little pricey, but I have a Benchmade Auto Triage and it is incredible. The Auto Main Blade and Seatbelt Cutter have been flawless.

This X 1000. I LOVE THIS KNIFE. I have carried this or a variant of this on me daily for years. It has been used to cut the seat belt off of an unconscious woman in a burning car, and helped me break a window to rescue a toddler left in a hot car. I have tried others but nothing I have tried even compares!

I gifted a young man going into the local fire/EMT squad a Spyderco rescue. I liked the Sheepsfoot blade and the aggressive serrations. I know he really liked it, when I see him I'll have to ask if it's still with him, he's now with the Las Vegas F.D.

I try to keep some sort of Leatherman within arms reach.

Take a look at one of these:

Even a regular Leatherman, surge, wave, etc... work really well.

If he's with LVFD, he will never wear that knife out Smile

I have used a Leatherman Charge XTI for several years:

https://www.leatherman.com/cha...AEgJ4ufD_BwE&start=1

I have replaced the original nylon sheath with a leather one (due to wear from pretty much daily use) and added a bit driver extender and two extra sets of bits. I have never had to use the seat belt cutter for that purpose, but I have used pretty much every blade on this thing and many of the bits. I have used it to repair everything from eyeglasses to door handles.

One thing I like about the Emerson is that the seatbelt cutter is on the main blade but can also be used without opening the knife, I like that simplicity of having everything in one spot, no need for using 2 hands to deploy the seatbelt hook or worrying about having to close the main blade while using the seatbelt cutter.

ordered the Emerson, other knoves look cool but i like the idea of having one blade with a seatbelt cutter that I can operate one handed without fiddling to unfold a secondary blade.
