I can't think of a single justification to own one, but they look like a nice hunk of steel I like firemen quite a lot - does that count?
I have a local city firefighter friend. I got him one for a gift. He loves it. They are made by a fire chief in the States specifically for fire fighters. It replaces a pocketful of tools that one would need to do their job. My friend loves his, and carries it. It replaced a lot of tools for him.The tool is actually very well made. They do look crude, but very tough and has not failed under hard working conditions. Not sure it is something I would just buy for kicks...but if your into rescue tools, this is definitely a must get item.(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
I haven't bought a pair yet, but I do enjoy checking out their ebay auction photos. LINK(Image removed from quote.)
