But the truth is, it can happen to any of us.
At Uppercut Tactical, we prefer to be prepared for an emergency, just in case.
That’s why we offer a selection of Rescue Knives - tools built to get you out of emergency situations swiftly and efficiently.
What is a Rescue Knife?
You probably know rescue knives as a knife with a glass breaker and seatbelt cutter. And this is almost always true.
But more generally, a rescue knife is a tactical knife made for the purpose of effectively completing rescue oriented tasks - breaking glass; quickly cutting through clothing, seatbelts, or straps; slicing through tough materials; and more.
In short, rescue knives help first responders to an emergency situation get to the person in need and get to the part of them that needs treatment. And they help individuals get out of emergency situations as quickly as possible.
Rescue knives also typically have assisted open blades so they can easily be operated with one hand.
Because they are often used by firefighters, police, EMTs and first responders, a rescue knife is often referred to as:
EMT Knife / EMS Knife
First Responder Knife
You’ll also hear them referred to as a "Car Knife" because one of the top uses for individuals is to escape their car in case of a wreck or submersion. (The seatbelt cutter and window breaker knife helps them get out of the car quickly.)
Whether you’re a firefighter, EMT, LEO or just a well-prepared individual, this page is where you’ll find the best rescue knife to get yourself and others out of harm’s way ASAP.
We have a variety of price points to offer both quality and affordable methods for you to protect yourself in case of emergency.
