This works great, I keep it in may car it has come in handy for opening packages and cutting small rope/paracord. I will have to knock the clip on the sheath very hard to clip it to anything. as a comment on the rusting being a 420HC stainless it has a much lower corrosion resistance than a 300 series. if you want stainless tool for saltwater you need a 304 or 316 stainless to protect against the high salt content. any 400 series stainless will rust in contact with water if not properly dried out after.

It's advertised as 'stainless' but quickly rusts and corrodes once it's gotten wet with salt water.

It may work well in Iraq, but not near water!

i love the design, would give it 5 stars, but the hole by glassbreaker should have O2 wrench for it. only reason i got a CRKT cutter than this one

What drew me to this was the plastic coating on the handle-side, which marries to the scabbard very neatly, the window breaker at the butt-end of the tool and the deep crenelations along the spine which give a very good positive grip even when wet, mucky or perhaps dangling upside-down. The scabbard comes with a PALS/MOLLE compatible clip, which can be removed to fit the included MALICE clip by Tactical Tailor for alternate attachment options to webbing. The cutting edge is very keen, and looks to have great geometry. The rounded hook is wide enough to accept a variety of items to cut, but is narrower than my little finger, which is a good safety feature if you are worried about working close to skin, but will limit the maximum width of cord that can be cut. The finger loops give plenty of room for two fingers, and will fit gloved hands well, if that is needed.

Not wanting to go on about a tool so readily testable without offering some proof, so here goes: Packing cable-tie, 550 paracord, "industrial" cable-tie, 1" webbing, IT grade cable tie, nylon packing strap, boot leather. The industrial cable tie gave me the most trouble, mostly because I was cutting it free-standing, rather than looped onto anything.

This is a gorgeous tool. I look forwards to using it to cut my way through all kinds of things, and hopefully not need to cut my way to freedom with it.

A new look to an old tool but this one takes up more room and does less. I WOULD NOT BET MY LIFE ON IT. To bad. it looks good
