Benchmade Automotive Tools
« on: February 07, 2009, 02:11:30 AM »
It seems that Mikey and I are evil people, and have forgotten at least one new thing we saw at SHOT- Benchmade's new Houdini line of automotive escape tools.  Perhaps the terms "new" and "line" are a bit extravagant, as there are only two tools in the line and only one is actually new.  Benchmade is re-branding their ERT-1 as the larger Houdini model, now called the Houdini Pro:



Meanwhile, the smaller model is all new, and simply called the Houdini. 



Similar in size and function to NOV8's ResQMe tool, the Houdini has a spring loaded glass break, seatbelt cutter hidden by quick release keychain fob, LED light and a whistle, making it more resourceful a tool than the ResQMe.



It is also slightly larger, and so may be less likely to be carried on a keychain, so you'll have to decide what's more important- convenience or extra features.

I like it so far, but then I've only had it a few hours, and haven't yet had to escape a sinking car yet!  I'll post some more pics soon- the pics above are from SHOT, and now that my sample has arrived I can take some comparison pics!

I have one all right... which is why I'm moving....  so a "real world" glass breaking test might just be in the making!

Only thing it needs is an on-board spray paint dispenser. Then it would be perfect! >:D

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools
