What Are Safety Knives and Cutters
If you’re unfamiliar with Gerber’s safety knives and cutters, you may not see the need for keeping one in your glove compartment or backpack. But if you’re caught in a vehicle, struggling to get a seatbelt undone, or fighting with a parachute strap or some other kind of heavy nylon, you’ll understand the purpose for safety knives and cutters, and wish you had one with you all the time.
Gerber Strap and Box Cutter
The Gerber Safety Strap and Box Cutter comes in three different handle colors (foliage green, coyote brown and black) and is made for tough cutting jobs without risk of injury thanks to the safety shield that prevents these safety knives and cutters from causing harm.
Featuring an overall length of just under 4.4 inches, the blade on these safety knives and cutters is crafted of black 420HC stainless steel to make them ideal for strong jobs while maintaining stealth when you might need it most. This tool is priced low for the quality construction and reliability you receive. Users brag about how razor sharp the blade is, and how superb the grip. In fact, the same users state that it’s much better than expected and the solid weight makes it surprisingly durable.
Safety Knives and Cutters in Emergencies
One military man told of how important he finds safety knives and cutters, in addition to a knife. He said that a lot of people don’t think they need one if they carry a knife, but he disagreed. According to this man, if you’re trapped in a vehicle roller, especially near water, you can be sure the small investment you make is well worth the sense of security and safety you’ll derive. And if you ever need to exit a vehicle quickly or get someone else out in a hurry, you’ll realize that a knife doesn’t even compare to this tool. They’re as different as night and day.
Additional Features of Gerber’s Safety Knives and Cutters
Gerber’s safety knives and cutters feature a lanyard hole, MOLLE adaptable clip and MALICE clip to keep it handy, and one handed deployment for fast and easy access when you’re in a bind. In addition, the blunt hook allows you to quickly get under a seatbelt, webbing, strap, or clothing to slice away, and the extra large finger holes give a solid grip, even if you’re wearing gloves.
These safety knives and cutters are the most functional ones you can buy and feature an ambidextrous attachment to make it easy for anyone to use, right or left-handed.
