Spyderco Rescue 93mm (C14BL/BK)
Emergency cutting requires rescue personnel have a readily accessible knife for quickly separating a variety of materials and a design that safely cuts around people in hectic surroundings. Spyderco's new C14 Rescue 93mm model was built with these needs in mind. A remake of the landmark C14 Spyderco Rescue, the Rescue 93mm has a 3 1/2" cutting edge made from VG-10 stainless steel. The blade is mostly serrated with the last inch at the tip PlainEdged for a broad range of cutting needs. The blade's tip is a rounded sheepfoot design (no sharpened point) that slides safely under seat belts or clothing. A unique feature is the crescent-shaped portion of steel bitten from the blade's spine just in front of the hole. While cutting, the crescent provides a positioning spot for the index finger giving perfect control over the blade's tip. Behind the round hole a row of textured serrations position the thumb for command over the entire cutting edge. Both positioning points are further refined by a finger Choil cut from the underbelly of the handle where the handle and blade meet. Blade and handle shape collectively, create first-rate control and ergonomic comfort over the entire knife. Made of fiberglass reinforced nylon resin the handle is indigo blue, textured with a palm grip-sticking waffle pattern. A tip-up pocket clip fastens to either side of the handle for both right and left-handers and doubles as a lanyard hole. A half-moon of steel removed from the locking lever (called a David Boye indent) makes the knife impossible to accidentally close when gripped very tightly.
Spyderco Rescue (C14BK/BL) and Rescue Jr. (C45OR/BK)
The folder you need when you want to cut something, not someone. The Rescue and Rescue Jr. have a Sheepfoot Blade that is rounded at the tip. Specially designed Ergonomics provide a comfortable Choil for the forefinger and the hump over the hole gives purchase for the thumb. An excellent knife for emergency personnel (cutting seat belts), rafters (using inflatables), ranchers (cutting around livestock) and marine applications (when cutting close to your hands while on a moving boat). The fiberglass reinforced nylon handle is heavily textured providing some resistance for a firmer gripping surface. The blade is hollow ground. They attach to a pocket, belt or vest with a reversible left/right metal clip that stays put without pivoting or slipping.
