Great for ...

This may be a rescue knife but, dare I say, it makes a superb gardening knife also. I bought one for my wife for her gardening. She loves it. It's perfect for reaching into a tangle of growth and precisely slicing off just the targeted stem. It's ease of use and safety qualities are a plus for this application too. Quality, Benchmade is the knife maker that first showed me what fine quality is! This simple knife is no exception.

Awesome American Benchmade quality

I got this for myself from knifecenter while shopping for a gift for a family member. It has all the Benchmade trademarks, plus an unusually low price. Benchmade's site says these are US made which is cool, because it's a simple design they could have made anywhere on Earth to save them money, but they make it here, like all of their best products. This hook is a 1 piece, foolproof emergency materials cutter with an outstanding carry-system. I have their original style rescue hook in the visor of my car and I've used that one to cut fishing line and other materials, which it does flawlessly. This new 8 hook though, I'm saving for true emergencies. I like the fact that these new designs have a good powder coat type exterior as my original traditional rescue hook is black, but has weathered some minor rust spotting. The molle compatible sheath is excellent and secure and even includes an elastic band around the top for further security for emergency response and law enforcement professionals who lead a more hectic lifestyle than myself. My neighbors are ER and medical professionals and I think they'd really be impressed by the design. The finger-ring at the butt of the tool is well placed and a lanyard hole is even provided. Traction grooves run the length of the spine of the thing for secure grip. I can't recommend this tool enough, I get excited about all high quality knives, and i love my Benchmades, but this is truly a remarkably well designed and simple tool that I'm glad I own.

Great Buy for EMS workers

I bought this rescue hook for my dad on fathers day. He loves it! He works ems and he said it was superior to anything. It can be used to cut seatbelts, leather belts and zings right through any shirt. He used it on a gun shot victim and it never touched the patients body and got through his shirt faster then any scissors could

Well made.

Needed this product for a quick safe way to cut straps and zip ties in an emergency. The product will work great for what I intend it for, and it is well made. The sheath is the only problem, and no matter how much I practice I can't quickly deploy it. So instead I attach it to my safety vest with a piece of velcro, and I don't use the sheath.
