How does it sound to have the best survival knife as a safety tool that includes:

I recently purchased your T3 tactical auto rescue tool. Today I was driving down the freeway and witnessed a truck flip over and land on its roof. I pulled over and immediately grabbed the T3. As I was running up to the truck with others that pulled over we could hear people screaming inside the truck. We ripped the door open and the first thing that we could see was a woman wrapped in the seatbelt screaming and crying. I am a corrections officer so this wasn't my first time dealing with an emergency situation but I cannot say the same for the others with me. Two men tried to pull the woman free but she was stuck and the two men were beginning to panic. I stepped up grabbed the seat belt and cut through it like tissue paper. All the people that were trying to help all pause at the ease that I cut the seat belt. To make this long story short we pulled the people from the vehicle and I have never felt so confident in a product. What you have created is amazing. I have numerous trainings under my belt when it comes to emergency and rescue situations and I've never had a tool that made me feel calmer in a heightened situation because I have it. I thank whoever developed this product.

This is a well made, heavy duty multi purpose tool worth carrying every day. Well worth the price.

Believe the T 3 Auto Rescue Tool is well designed and important safety tool to have in my and my wife's car - I bought two. I found the tool to be very well designed but found the instructions for opening and closing the two "blades" of the tool to be inadequate and totally confusing. After about 30 minutes of trying to close both blades I finally stumbled onto the parts to bend and allow closing! The ease of closing is great - but only after one discovers the procedure. Better diagrams and instructions on the packaging would be VERY helpful - would strongly recommend.

This knife is what i was looking for in a one package deal. my wife bought it for me as a birthday gift and haven't stopped carrying it ever since. I am an EMT so its a must have tool especially for car accidents. my only complaint about the knife is that the light died out because i kept unknowingly hitting the button when it was in my pocket. Still love this knife that could be fixed with a switch versus having a button.

The seatbelt cutter work great on clothes. The flashlight is great for pupil assessment. The knife is sharp. Can't ask for a better knife. Just need to use the window punch.
(Posted by Deuce1185 on 20th Jun 2014)
I work on an ambulance and this tool is used on nearly every shift. Be careful when using the spring loaded window punch. It works a lot better than you expect it to. Scared the hell out of me the first time because I expected more resistance. I ended up putting my entire hand through a patient's car window. The hooked blade works great for a quick strip n' flip as well. If you know someone who is in EMS, this is the PERFECT gift. It also comes with a sturdy case that loops onto your belt.

I'm not a huge knife fan, but my husband is. It's not that I don't like them, I just can't ever close them right and I'm afraid I'll chop off my finger. Yet my husband can close them effortlessly. The knife we received is very high quality, functions great and looks cool. The blade is VERY sharp so please be careful when handling it. The handle is easy to hold and grip. I love that the knife also comes with a carrying pouch for ease and convenience. Of course I still have trouble closing the blade on this knife even though they have instructions. As I said, I'm always worried I'll loose a finger or something so I just leave it alone. So please don't hold this against the company, it's my own personal problem with that one. What I like about the knife other than how cool and sharp it is not to mention the mini light. Plus it was designed by a paramedic and field tested in the EMS setting.
Needless to say I love the knife. Stainless steal serrated blade, stainless steel seatbelt cutter, LED Light, and a spring loaded steel tip window punch - everything a cool knife needs with all the important safety functions. This makes for a great Father's Day gift as well as any holiday gift in general. If you don't know what to get that someone special, consider this tactical triage & auto rescue tool, you can't go wrong!

Note......I've only had this knife for a couple of days and I haven't used it on duty. I will certainly update if I'm less than pleased later, but I've been a Firefighter/Medic for over 20 years and I've seen many knives in that time.
The tool is made really well. The blades are strong and tight and the whole thing seems very rugged/sturdy in my hand and as I open/close the blades. When locked into place, the blades have no give and if I have any complaint about the operation at all, its simply that the mechanisms are really tight and hurt my thumb a little when operating. The experience I've had with this issue is that over time, through practice and break in, this will become less of a problem.
I bought this to replace a Smith & Wesson rescue knife that I'd bought years ago (somewhere around 1996 or 1997). I always kept that knife in its sheath attached to my bunker coat and it served me well. Somehow I lost it this year, so I went out in search of a new one. I chose the T3 because of the price, the features, the reviews, and the blade was better than the one I'd had which was pretty much just a seatbelt cutter. I'm going to try to get to a salvage yard to play with the cutter and punch, but at the moment I have no reason to believe they won't work fine.
The only real downsides to this knife that I can find is that, like others' have said, the light isn't very bright. I'm not sure what I was expecting though, so I'm not really disappointed with it. In a dark area, it will give you enough light to navigate your surroundings and can obviously be used for pupil checks (although it is a bit bright when you look directly at the beam, so your patients may not cooperate). Out past 10 foot or so, the light becomes lost. I seriously wasn't looking for a knife with a light on it though, so this is almost a non-issue for me. One thing I did notice is that when trying to open the seatbelt cutter, the position of the light button makes it very easy to turn on during the thumb "sweep" operation. I guess I'll just have to check it when I close the knife....or more likely....replace the batteries ;).
As far as the size.....some people have commented on how large the knife is. When I read the reviews I was expecting a machete, tbh. I didn't care because like I said, I'm going to carry the tool on my bunker coat. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it really isn't obtrusively big. The knife is about the same length as other pocket clip duty knives I've used, but its about twice the width (about 3/4"). It has a sheath, but I suspect it could be worn on the pocket without discomfort. TBH, I'm considering doing just this as I'm not sure I won't use it more often than I used to use the S&W Rescue knife. Either way....as a new full-time service knife or a specialized tool when I'm in my gear....I'm completely satisfied with this piece of equipment and do not regret my choice at all.

Perfect addition to my EDC. I have been looking for a new blade to add to my every day carry, that has multiple uses without being as bulky as my multi-tool. This covers all those criteria, as well has the added feature of being able to take out car windows if I'm ever stuck and need it.
(Posted by Kindle Customer on 25th May 2014)
Thankfully have not used it a I have not found myself in any deep water with my vehicle. My picky son was happy I purchased one for him too.
(Posted by Deshleman "Dave" - CA on 25th May 2014)
This is the Perfect gift for the guy that already has all kinds of neat gadgets and you don't know what to get him. Designed by an EMS, and made in America I believe. Got this for my girlfriends dad and he loved it.
I would recommend this for:
A. Anyone who drives a car
B. law enforcement/EMS
C. Anyone who likes knives/multipurpose gadgets/tools

This is a must for every car or SUV as part of an emergency kit. Strap it on your belt or carry it in your pocket when behind the wheel. You never know when a crash may happen and hopefully you never will It is very sturdy..

Pretty cool tool. My husband thought we needed one for each car, so we both have them. Hope it works when and if I need it to. Haven't had the opportunity to use it... thank God!
(Posted by customer on 25th May 2014)
Lifesaving device, excellent for the car truck or atv. Better to have it and not need it, than the other way-round. Very satisfied.
(Posted by LRiso on 25th May 2014)
I bought this tool as a gift for someone who is a fireman. They love this tool! It is really an all in one tool for someone who is involved in rescue acts. Everything on the tool worked very nicely.

This tool was everything that was advertised. It was delivered on time. The knife was shaving sharp right out of the box. I am very pleased with my purchase. This tool will be kept in my pickup truck as a personal rescue tool while traveling.

The knife cuts things instantly. It's super sharp and really does the trick with minimal effort. The seat belt cutter cuts anything flat...I mean anything! I took a test at the cardboard box Amazon sent with this and it cut it like a knife in butter. And last but not least the window spring loaded breaker. I tested this on a small fish tank I used to have, the glass is about twice as thick as a cars window and with just a little bit of a push into the glass the whole thing shattered perfectly. So I keep this in my car at all times. If I was in an accident or I every see anyone else in an accident, this is the ONLY tool I would trust. High quality and great performance results!

I used this for the first time the other day on a music video set as part of the art department crew. This thing is awesome. The seat belt cutter slides through fabric or sash like tissue paper. The knife works perfectly, sturdy with a few different edge patterns to slice according to circumstance. The light isn't a full torch, but it stills works well enough for seeing the ground in the dark. I could hook it to my belt and see where I was going or what I was working on without even holding it. The bonus that its specifically made for emergencies lets me feel secure while its on me, knowing I could punch through glass or cut through a seatbelt if necessary. Great purchase, had multiple and varied uses for it throughout a single work day.

This is a cool looking knife with multiple features. I did some research and located a couple video reviews of the knife on youtube. One video tests all the functions of the knife and they all seem to work. The glass breaker actually shatters a car window and the seatbelt cutter cuts through a seatbelt like butter. The light on the knife is not overly bright but it is a led and is about the equivlant of a keychain led light. The knife part is nice but could use a good sharpening. The knife comes with a holder to put the knife into and put it on your belt. I like the knife so much, I purchased one for my dad as a gift. It would be a nice knife to leave in your center console or in a door compartment.

The T3 is just what you need for an Auto Rescue tool. While it was designed for EMT's it works perfectly well for the rest of us. I used nylon ties through the belt loop to mount it in an easily reachable location on my driver's side door. This allows me to remove the tool quickly in an emergency, or to clip it onto my belt with the belt clip. It's always available should I need it. It's extremely well made and works easily and quickly once you've practiced a couple of times. I recommend the T3 for anyone who needs an auto emergency tool.

This is our second time to order the T3. It has become standard issue for all of our employees. It is easy to use and we have had no issues or complaints since we began using this tool.

As a school bus driver and volunteer firefighter the seatbelt cutter is what interested me the most. I cut a old seatbelt and was very impressed with it.
