The T3 Tactical Auto Rescue Tool
Don't Get Caught without One!
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.

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.

Great tool used it all of the time. Was on a bad rollover in the dead of winter. Used the hook to cut out the glass of the drivers door before the rescue arrived. Wrecked the blades saved the driver. (glass wouldn't pop due to the stress load)

Well made handy tool no one should be without. It's not just or the medical field either. Great for personal use and for professional truck drivers like myself. Easy to use, durable and always at the ready with the included carrying case.

I just finished thoroughly testing the T3 for a national LE publication, and it performed `WAY beyond what you might expect from such a low-priced tool. The window-breaker worked great, the seat belt /cord cutter is very efficient, one-handed operability is fine, the surface finish and shape provides a good, solid grip, and the LED really helps when working in the dark. Bravo! Good design, well executed!

I was interested to see how usable the rescue tool was, given its reasonable price. I was delighted with it and really quite surprised with the functionality and quality. One is now in both vehicles and will no doubt see use in circumstances other (hopefully) than emergencies. But it will be good knowing they're there!

Great tool in all respects except difficult to fold knife blade. Instructions on box are vague (poor diagram). I had to go to the StatGear website and watch the video to retract the blade. I disagree that it is a one handed operation to fold the blade back in.

I am glad this product is available. It is definitely needed by every vehicle owner. Seems like the auto manufacturers would include one with each vehicle sold.

Just got this knife a few days ago and so far it's holding up to it's name! I am in the EMS field and was looking for a decent knife and the T3 so far has exceeded my expectations.
The knife is pretty darn sharp and can glide through practically much everything like butter. The flashlight is pretty darn useful and as for the seatbelt cutter/ auto glass breaker, well let's just say I havent had to use it yet.

I love this tool! A friend ordered one for me, as I am a student going for a 2 year degree in EMS. I carry it with me EVERYWHERE I go. I never know when I will need it.
It is extremely user friendly. The blades, (straight and seat belt cutter), fold away for easy, SAFE storage. The straight and seat belt cutter also lock in place while in use. The light is very useful to enable the user to see what they're cutting.
It is easy to use with gloves on, I had to test that one. You have made a very dependable tool; one that is useable on every scale that I've worked with thus far.
THANK YOU for helping to make my job and my learning process a little easier!!!!

I purchased one for each of my two vehicles. The T3 is well made with top quality materials. The flip-out partially serrated blade is sharp enough to shave my arm and the flip-out seat belt cutter is just as sharp and uniguely made to slice through any belt without danger of personel injury. The window breaker works flawlessly with ease.

and too many other things to list

I got 2 of these. One for me (I work in EMS) and one for my husband (he works on an oil rig). We both love this knife and use it a lot!

First, the concept as a whole is great! Things that I would suggest would be to improve the battery compartment by making the top out of rubber and creating a lip on the inside to mate it to so that it would have a better seal. This will enhance the life of the light. Next, if possible, it would be nice to reduce the overall handle size. This would make it more carry-friendly when not using the supplied sheath. Other that that, it is use friendly, great rubber grip, the window-punch & a spot for a lanyard were great design ideas!

That T3 triage tool is great. Works TOO good. I ended up putting my whole hand through a car window cause I thought the punch was going to give me at least a little resistance. Scared me AND the pt.

Because you never know what can happen, you find your self upside down in a car pinned and unable to reach the buckle but have this, BAM.

Multifunctional-led light, window punch, seat cutter . . etc
Minor contact issue on light.
Impressed with the multifunctional tool and quality of craftsmanship. Also, the customer service team is helpful. I would recommend to friends family.

Pretty happy with it, only thing I would change would to make it have a spring for the blade to swing open.
Seatbelt cutter actually cuts perfect!
Haven't tried the window punch yet but looks legit!
Overall I would buy this knife again and I recommend it to anyone who wants a knife /tool that works!

What I like about this knife is that the seatbelt cutter folds back into the knife which is safe and secure and when you pop it it out it locks not like other kivies that are built as a full frame knife and doesn't fold safely back into the kinfe, also what I love about this knife it has a small LED light that is very bright which has many uses. I would recommend this knife for a safety tool in your car in case of an emergency. 5 Stars!
(Posted by Adam on 10th Jan 2013)
Overall the tool is nicely made, well finished and has the basic items needed to cut seatbelts, break glass and shine a light on it all.
My only small issues are I'd like to see a button lock over a liner lock and I would gladly pay more for an American made version of it.
But the fact it's so reasonably priced is what makes it so appealing and it comes with case.
It's one of the few times being called a "tool" is a good thing.

Used my T3 knife on a single vehicle rollover while on the Interstate. I was off duty and used the seat belt knife to extricate the driver. Worked like butter. Driver was unconcsious/unresponsive and pulseless. Pulled him out and worked him until FD got there. This knife is amazing.
