Hinderer Rescue - Serrated, Sheath
It took a fire fighter with a genius for knife design to conceive this feature-rich rescue knife. And Rick Hinderer did himself proud. Hes integrated some of the most important features a fire fighter will need. Even while wearing turn-out gloves, using this knife will not be an issue. The knife has larger, beefier features and mechanisms built-in. This is no ordinary rescue knife.

I've been on my towns volunteer fire department for 7 months. I'm only 16, and I've been on 30+ calls. Every time we arrive to a vehicular accident my rig is one fo the first to show up. this knife is always clipped in with me. The seatbelt cutter is tremendous. I've used it plenty of times, as well as the window basher. only problem is mines become rounded on the top and its pretty much useless now. the O2 take opener is a lifesaver for us as well. thanks for a great product!
This is a great knife and both the blade and seat belt cutter work great at cutting clothes which is my main use for it.
I will agree that the plastic gets chewed up after multiple tank openings and could do with improvement like a reinforced collar to prevent that but I also carry an oxygen wrench on my keys which I like better and use more
I like the tool set but unfortunately I lost the adaptive piece between the handle and the screwdriver bits. I contacted customer service and they sent me a replacement piece though which is great customer service
Great knife. Could do without the seatbelt cutter. You'll never use it. Blade does a great job, and maybe offer one without the tools. Never used them in an actual on-duty situation.
I'm just sorry I lost mine. Came out of my pocket on an MVC, and must have fell out of my bunker pants. Im certain the tow truck driver is loving it. haha
All of the patrol Deputies got this knife. I have had to use it many times and love the knife. I agree with EMR on the O2 opener. It gets chipped and chewed up after having to use it to open the tanks.
As a volunteer firefighter I was given this as a gift and I love it, although I have never used it on a call I do use it every day in the warehouse I work at, the rounded saftey tip allows me to cut into certain products without accidentally ruining the item and the seat belt cutter is perfect for cutting the plastic off of pallets without having to worry about cutting the products.
Just got one for my b-day...used it already and it is a fantastic knife!
Love the knife, works great but big dissapointment with the window punch used it on one vehicle and has completely rounded and wont function.
Not really usable while wearing firefighter gloves but rescue gloves give better dexerity. Knife can torque the handle a little to easy making it difficult to close single handed. Strongly suggest that the entire knife not be redesigned but simply beefed up throughout.
The Selt belt cutter that folds out is not really that great but the blade makes short work of any man-made webbing. The blunt tip it perfect, it's not too big or too small, and best of all the O2 wrench is always by your side. I love this knife. I wish it wasn't so pricey, I got mine from a vender at a training weekend much cheaper.
Love this knife. Only complaint is the 02 crank needs to be reinforced with a thin piece of metal as the plastic around its edge has become severely chewed up after ten or so tank openings. I really want to see this product improved and kept on the market.
SUPER NICE TOOLS. I LOVE IT
Love this! I own a drawer full of knives and yet this is the one I Always gone on duty with. Thanks to the blunt end, it goes in between a person and their clothes safely. It cuts Anything, pants boots belts
I have used this several time while working security, and even during several medical calls. I love the fact that there is a oxygen key built into the knife, a whole lot more comfortable to use compared to a normal key. The knife is strong it pried a door off the frame of a car and dented the vehicle but didn't damage the knife. I do have a few cons about the knife, First the window punch, didn't work to well for me maybe swap it for a more aggressive point carbide tip? Second, the safety cutter it doesn't cut to well, I ground mine out to more of an arc so it slides better and doesn't bunch up.
received as a gift and I lost it and now there out of stock, can't wait to get another one.
This is a great knife! I've used it numerous times on scene. As for the "disappointed", 3 star rater, the tip of the knife is supposed to be blunt and not sharp. The knife has a blunt tip so you do not cut your patients while trying to slice restraints, bandages, etc. What a great idea and a great knife!!
Very solid knife, it carries a nice amount of weight and is built very well. The serrated blade and belt cutter are razor sharp and perform great. The size and weight make this knife easy to use with turn out gloves on. Super tool.
Recieved this knife as a present from my wife...Best present I have ever recieved for work. Extremely Durable, True to its name The Seatbelt Cutter truly works and havent popped any windows on a call but still had to try it out and works like a charm...And the dull blade tip was ingenius and definitely insures the safety for me and my patients.
Great knife! I have used the tip as a screw-driver on several occasions and the 02 wrench a number of times as well. LOVE this knife.
I guess Shawn hadn't realised that this knife was made for paramedics or search and rescue technicians, so that the point won't cut people who's wounds need tending to; hense the name.
This is a great knife for both jobs. Love the dull point cause when having to cut clothes to expose wound I didn't have to worry about further injuring someone. Didn't have to use the seat belt cutter to cut seat belts but was good to open MREs
Great knife only issue is tip of blade is not sharpend. After costing $100 to come out of box needing more is crap would recommend the hinder over this one.
own it use it everyday love it, only draw back the seat belt cutter it hard to sharpen but you still have a big safe blade when it gets dull. love gerber own five with no faults.
