Any knife that receives the prestigious “Knife Of the Year” award from the IWA exhibition should be more than worthy of an honorable mention here at OnlyKnives. This Victorinox Rescue Tool is the 2007 award recipient, and is widely used by many safety patrol officers and firemen across the world.
One of the most distinctive attributes of this Swiss Army knife is its attention to detail in the area of vehicular rescue. It contains a super-strong window breaker as well as a rounded belt cutter that quickly slices through seat belts.
Many of the tools can be accessed while wearing gloves, too. Take for example the plain-edge knife that locks into place when opened, making it even stronger and more reliable in an emergency.
Other features include: Phillips screwdriver, 6mm screwdriver, cap lifter, wire stripper, disc saw, reamer punch, tweezers, toothpick, and a key ring as well as a short nylon cord.
The handle is lightweight and treated for anti-corrosion like all other Victorinox pocketknives, although this time it’s coated with reflective neon yellow so it can be easily seen. A nifty little nylon case is included with the Rescue Tool as well, so you can keep it safe and secure when you’re not out saving lives. And as always, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
