When you’re dealing with an emergency situation, you don’t want to have to fiddle with a knife that takes effort to open, or a blade that’s too long or thin to handle easily. Whether you’re cutting yourself free of ropes or netting, removing barriers to rescue someone who’s fallen or been trapped, performing an emergency tracheotomy* or fighting off drop bears** in Australia, the right rescue knives can make all the difference.
Rescue knives aren’t just for professionals such as search and rescue volunteers, firefighters and more. They’re also a great addition to the kit of any hiker, fisher, camper, climber or outdoor enthusiast. It is important to note that while a normal blade can’t generally be used for rescue situations, a rescue blade can be utilised for a wide range of other cutting and notching tasks.
We stock a select range of high quality rescue knives for our NZ and Australasian based customers. With features such as assisted opening and belt clips or boot sheathes for easy access, they’re perfect for when you need to act right away.
