Smith & Wesson First Responder Knife
This is my 3rd S&W knife and it surely won't be my last! Of the other two I keep one in my car and the second in my duty bag. As Night Patrol said, you do have to watch your thumb when working the release but once I got accustomed to it, no big deal. And I don't know what the other guy was talking about with the glass punch. I've had one occasion to use mine with a car crash victim and it preformed as expected. And I do agree the seat belt cutter could use a little tweaking, but other wise it's an all around great EDC knife. I would highly recommend this knife to any first responders.
Seems ok for the money. Seatbelt cutter could be larger, but cuts well. Window punch will put a knick in glass, had to scribe a few lines first to get threw.
Good quality knife for the money. Has close tolerances and opens easy first time. Seatbelt cutter is probably biggest downfall. Too small to work well. Window punch seems firm and good point. Blade is sharp and has ambidextrious thumb studs. Only downfall when closing knife watch your thumb on the release. The serrated portion is more like tiny spears and will puncture fairly deep. Will definately buy more when lost or broken.
Good knifetool. Excellent. Just know it's a 'heavy' piece to carry. Recommended!
