That is the only reason I haven't bought a Benchmade. If I lose one of my Cold Steel folders no big deal as I can replace it for $40 - 50. I think I would be to worried of losing a $150 knife to enjoy it.

I just carry a cheap 3-4" locking blade with a pocket clip. Over 15 years, I've spent less than $25.00 on knives and not never had 1 not do what I wanted it to.

I carry a Benchmade model 5 Rescue hook. Never cut a seatbelt with it, but have cut off clothing on patients and have used the O2 wrench many times. I like it because it is very small and light. I don't even know it is there on my belt. As far as a knife, I carry either a Benchmade 9050 auto or a Coldsteel Recon 1. And I agree with others about the "EMT knives" being just a marketing scheme. I have broken a few windows, but used a Halligan spike or some other handtool from off the truck.

Been on FD 6 years. Never once punched a window or cut a seatbelt on a scene, only in training.

I carry a S&W Extreme OPS. Works fine for me.

Ok I guess I wil be the one to be different. I carry a strider SNG in front right pocket,HAk around my neck,S&W responderon belt in right rear,Benchmade rescue hook in front shirt pocket. I have broken out several windows with the S&W.Most were in the early days when we all thought this was SOP. Now I semdolm break any glass. But I will allways carry my SNG I dont care if it did cost $400.00 You get what you pay for.

I carry a magnum I got for free from CDNN when I ordered a bunch of stuff from them. I think it is their lightweight.

I like it.

personally, i prefer having a knife with a point. Can't carry my piece on duty so i want to have at least something i can claim is a tool. So that's the cold steel prolite.

For cutting cloting and webbing i use a benchmade rescue hook

Was carrying an Emerson CQC7 until it started playing hide and seek on me, might mix it up with a Gerber multi tool occasionally. Waiting for my Randall #10-3 in orange G10 to arrive.

I would say that more guys on our department than not, carry a blade with them most of the time.

If you got cash to burn, get Bench Made. If you want a good utility knife, get a S&W.

What I Carry...

I carry one of two Gerber 3" folders while on duty. One of them has a black pocket clip and blade and the other is silver. They both have pointy ends and are very sharp. They're usually clipped in one of my front pockets or in a utility pocket on my thigh.

My only complaint about these knives is that their clip is mounted near the hinge. If they were mounted at the other end, I could easily draw my knife out and open it without having to turn it around 180 degrees in my hand first. My knives aren't designed as combat knives though.;f

I have rarely needed to use the knife for patient care purposes, but when I have had to, it's been invaluable. 99 times out of 100, I generally prefer to use my T-shears instead for most tasks.

I have found that my knife is a great utensil.

I usually carry a Masters of Defense CQD Mk. 1 with the window punch. It's worked pretty well so far. When I don't want something as big and bulky I carry my Kershaw Blackout. I also carry a Leatherman Wave on my belt.

I have a SOG EOD multitool. Awesome piece of equipment. Every medic who's played with mine has been ready to ditch their leatherman's and gerber's

Those things are great. In my opinion a tactical folder should be used for what it's intended. I use one of the folding box cutters for opening packages and the stuff not worth dulling my carry knife over.
