Antonini C.A.R. designed by Tommaso Rumici
on: March 04, 2022, 10:07:44 AM
C.A.R. == Car Accident Rescue
Just stumbled upon this, presented at the IWA. Looks like a really well designed tool. Prybar of an useful size. Glass breaker, safety glass cutters, hawkbill blade.

Weight: ~280g
Blade length: both ~80mm with button-lock
Handle: G10 + glow in the dark inlay

Sadly, cannot find more info at the present, but really like the look of this.

It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

They have some pretty interesting tools. However, not all of them are carried in the US. Blue Ridge and a couple large distributors only sell the "Old Bear" Antonini type knives. A larger selection was carried by a dealer in New Mexico, IKAT Supply, but he retired. He could also special order what he didn't regularly sell, but prices were a bit high. I own several, mostly single-blades I use as work knives.  Most of mine are low-cost "user" type offerings from the "Farm", "Cable", and "Boat" lineups; and inexpensive. 'I also have a MAMBA  fixed blade and ARA XL rescue hawkbill.

This is a very unusual design that makes Gerber's Prybrid look like a kid's toy.  I am wondering--is the woodsaw's true purpose a laminated glass saw?

That is my understanding, similar to the Vic Rescue tool. Considering how common laminated glass is these days that is almost a must have for a car-rescue-tool.

Ok, it is confirmed  now, that is a special saw for laminated glass.

I really want one, not that I have a car... been toying with getting a Antonini SAR knife (for the interesting locking mechanism), guess I have to add another Antonini to my "to buy" list :P
