I always carry and use nautical knife. Features include a marlin spike, blade, bottle opener, shackle key and a scale. Very easy to carry and use.

I bought the Vic Rescue tool after viewing their video.This tool addresses many of the uses a rescue tool may be required to perform.No tool is perfect in every situation but not having any tool is the worst case scenario.

I carry a Leatherman Raptor along with me for my outdoors.

If I need to pick some good EDC tools.
Then I would take my love leatherman multi tool wave and a flash light. Other are just a waste !!!

I got the Vic Rescue Tool only a month ago. I like the keenness of the edges. I was a bit skeptical of the curved blade, but 11 days ago I cut the shirt off a Pt to get the Defib pads on him. It worked like a treat. Way easier than shears.
This is a nice tool.

Earlier I was not used to carry any rescue tools. But for multiple applications, I consider the Leatherman MICRA for my EDC use.

Windshield are laminated and wouldn't break into little pieces and fly off, go ahead and document with video cam.  :)

I'm not a fan of those spring loaded thingy thou, I'd rather have a carbide tip on back of my knife handle, bet I can smack it a lot harder than the spring can. Too bad I've yet to come across a knife I like with it.

what about the boker tech tool?

all of them have a glass breaker on them and come in black or olive

Of course the Vic Rescue tool could be used for other purposes such as gardening and bushcrafting.

I tend to use it for cardboard box cutting making up parcel boxes.

The saw for glass cutting could be used for cutting woods and branches too.

When in the car and emergency, it will do the original duties of course. A flexible tool.

That saw is too dull to cut wood effectively in my opinion.

I keep Victorinox Rescue Tool in my car, found it too bulky to carry it everyday (I hate the original sheath, the belt loop is too wide for my trousers' belt, it's OK for a duty belt though, so had to make a leather one). I carry it also while working extra as a medical staff on various events.

While I'm off duty or ride I'm someone else's car, I have a Blackhawk Hawkhook in addition to my regular EDC knife.

Too much punctuation might reveal problems.

Skedco Warfighter Extreme Medicine. Mostly bought because I wanted to try Eickhorn's PRT Series (which the Extreme Medicine is a modified PRT-IV, with an added tank key), but it's always good to have with its glass breaker, belt cutter, and blunt blade (which was mostly bought with the intention of freeing livestock in stuff they got caught in.   I paid $30 for mine, but I feel $120 or so they retail for is a bit much, given with a few exceptions (some use Bohler N690, but not many) they use 440A as opposed to something like 154CM or VG-10 like most other high-end rescue knives do.

I'm borrowing Skedco's listing photo for this.

Definitely  - It cannot cut wood at all - I have tried - For an experiment/test
The teeth are flat not sharp

I have Vic Rescue tool in the car and a Rescume me on the keyring - Both tools I hope I never have to use

Someone earlier siad that you could not replace the blade on the Rescume and had this as a black mark
- But why would you need to - It's not a tool for regular use - Right?

Great to hear about all the first respnders and their gear though - esp the Vic
Thanks for the posts guys  :tu:

Just a reminder for those who keep tools for self-rescue in their vehicles: In the event of a rollover, anything not securely fastened in place will instantly become a flying hazard to your health, and impossible to find once the vehicle comes to rest.
For example, here's a photo of my sister's van on Christmas morning a couple weeks ago:


Everybody is alive, but it took them a couple days of searching to find all of the Christmas presents that had been scattered around the crash site.

Carry rescue tools by all means--just don't leave them lying on the dash or in the glovebox, expecting that they'll still be there when you need them.
