Rescue Knives

You'll never find a police officer, fire fighter or EMT without a rescue knife close at hand. Many of these life saving tools have glass breaker tips which allow first responders to shatter windows with only one strike. Belt cutter hooks are also attached to these knives which make it possible to slice a seat belt in half without the risk of cutting the crash victim. A rescue knife clipped on your visor could very likely save your life if you were to be trapped in a wrecked vehicle.

Glass Breaker Tips


Many rescue knives possess glass breaker tips. Constructed of solid steel and machined to aggressively pointed angles which shatter most vehicle glass in one strike of the spike. The windshield is the strongest glass in a vehicle and side windows will always be the easiest to break to access a crash victim.

Cutting A Seat Belt


Seat belts are constructed with extremely strong nylon webbing that is intended not to tear easily. But the aggressive serrations on rescue knife blades and the razor sharp belt cutter hooks help ensure these belts are cut quickly and easily.

Top Customer Reviews - Rescue Knives


    • Isaac seymore (Riverside California) - Freaking awesome knives!!


      These are among the best and coolest knives I have ever purchased! They come really sharp straight from the package. They feel amazing in in my hands. As for the smaller one, I put it in my survival kit (that I bought from budk, also awesome) and carry the larger knife everywhere I go. I have bought much more expensive knives from bud k and let me tell you, these ones work just as well! I put them through the same tests I always put the more expensive ones through and they held up just fine.

    • Daniel Curran (Boston, MA) - EMT rescue knife


      I honestly love this knife. Though I was afraid that the colors would seem gaudy in person, the orange isn't as bright in real life as the picture makes it seem. It fits great in the hand, even when held in a position to use the glass breaker, which many knife makers miss. I will warn that the blade is not actually 4 3/4" long, but actually 3 3/4" which I'm sure is just a typo. Also, while it is only about a half an inch thick, it is quite wide, roughly an inch and a half at its widest point.

      Over the years I have made it a policy to carry knives that I give to first responders, friends etc. This knife has been met with rave reviews from everyone who has gotten one. Best bang for the buck I have seen in a long time. Liked them so well I ordered over 100 of them
