The debate among the Powers That Be over whether a folding knife is a tool or a weapon will continue as long as people have opinions. But we know that a good, reliable, sharp folding knife has many legitimate uses in the field of EMS. And having a bright orange handle gives the new5551H2OGriptillian fromBenchmade the distinct look of a rescue tool. The partially serrated, stainless steel, drop-point blade will handle many different materials. The AXIS blade locking system makes the knife easy to open and close for both right- and left-handed people. The pocket clip can also be reversed to suit both righties and lefties as well.
