We developed this universal tool based on the requests of members of security forces – it is a knife for rescue workers, police officers and soldiers as well as for everyday carrying (EDC). The knife boasts a unique shape and construction as it unites the tried and tested cutter of disposable handcuffs and seat belts with the reliable glass breaker.
The ESP knife fully performs the regular knife function, fitting the hand of the user perfectly. Moreover, it can be used in case of an accident for an emergency entry into or exit out of the vehicle and cutting of the seat belt. In case of need, its cutter can also be used to remove clothing from a wounded person without any risk of cutting them.
The knife's blade is made of quality cutlery steel type AUS-8 and comes in matte titanium gray color. The PVD surface treatment significantly increases the blade's resistance against wear and corrosion. The reliable liner lock type safeguard can be unlocked with the thumb.
Handle and the metal clip
The knife's handle is ergonomically shaped and comfortably fits the user's hand. The knife presents an innovative solution of the metal clip, which is partially embedded in the handle and does not form a protrusion. Thanks to this, the handle fits both right-handed and left-handed users excellently. The knife's unique construction is protected by a community registered design.
The fine pattern on the surface of the haft prevents the knife from slipping from the user's hand. The handle is made from resistant PA66 polyamide, ensuring it can truly withstand a lot. The knife can be attached to the gear or to a key chain thanks to a handy ring.
The knife is also equipped with a glass breaker, which contains a tip made of tungsten carbide. Thanks to this enhancement, only a milder strike suffices to reliably break glass, such as a car window. The breaking tip is also not too sharp, so the user cannot be accidentally injured during regular manipulation.
The multipurpose cutter on the knife's handle can easily cut car seat belts, clothing when administering first aid as well as ESP textile handcuffs. Thanks to its specially designed shape, the cutter can be easily inserted beneath the clothes while its embedded blade minimizes the risk of injury.
