Used the Belt cutter at work today after carrying it for just a few days. Worked ok. Can't say it was that much better than any serrated blade I've used. Had to put the seatbelt under tension to cut it. But no big deal. Got the guy out ok. Might go back to the Spyderco for a while.

I've always wondered how the Rescue Tool would work "in the real world". I've had one in my car for 2 years and thankfully haven't had an occasion to use it.

I wouldn't imagine it would be any "better" than regular serrated blade, just safer to use without cutting/poking yourself :think:

I have carried one for work for a while and I like it but it could be better. Another thing I would like to see is a better glass breaker, the one it has is ok at best, tend to use the carbide one on my leatherman raptors more. I would also have liked to see an O2 wrench on the tool but no dice  :(

The O2 wrench might not be something used internationally. But you could combine the RescueTool with a Benchmade Rescue Hook. The two have very little redundancies between them.

I tend to leave it at home lately to be honest, my LM raptor has the carbide glass breaker I like, it has a hook cutter which to me is better then a serrated rescue blade as well as an 02 wrench not to mention they are shears. For the price there are a lot of better options, I want to love it because of how much of a SAK fan I am but I just can not dig it. Heck for less then Half the price you can get a LM Z-rex which can do everything you need to self rescue from a vehicle. If you like it then Im not going to tell you not to buy It, I just can not recomend it with my experince :ahhh

I used my Vic Tool to cut the shirt off a bloke the other day to get defib pads on him.
It worked very well and safely. The glass breaker is something that I wouldn't use much outside of training days.
