Hogue’s Trauma First Response Tool is a reliable cutting tool for adverse situations while providing added utility for emergency first responders with features that can help save a life, be it your own or another. Bohler N680 stainless steel was chosen for the high level of toughness and corrosion resistance for reliable performance when you need it most while the stainless liner construction, G10 scales and ABLE lock mechanism deliver rock solid operation and a secure grip during use. An O2 wrench, recessed strap cutter and carbide glass breaker enhance the effectiveness of this already solid rescue tool. This version comes with a Black Cerakote coated, partially serrated Sheepsfoot blade and Orange G10 handles.
Brand new, direct from Hogue Knives, USA.
Blade: Made from Bohler N680 stainless steel, the Sheepsfoot blade slices and chops effectively while being safer than a more pointed blade profile. A high saber grind offers a good balance of slicing performance and durability while the partially serrated section makes quick work of tough, fibrous materials when the seconds count. A durable, black poly-ceramic Cerakote coating offers enhanced corrosion resistance for ease of cleaning and maintenance. Milled dual thumb studs and phosphor bronze washers deliver smooth and reliable deployment and operation for left- and right-handed users.
Handle: Full, black coated stainless steel liners support the G10 composite handle scales with a semi-open back construction. Peel-Ply Texture, a generous index groove and strategic jimping deliver a secure grip for extreme situations while the chamfered edges provide extended comfort. The ABLE lock is smooth in operation providing ambidextrous action and rock solid lock up (read more below). In addition to the primary blade, the handles house a dedicated Strap Cutter and polymer back spacer with carbide glass breaker along with a milled Oxygen Valve Wrench hole on the front scale. Black coated Torx hardware and a generous lanyard hole round out the construction.
Carries via a reversible (tip-up), stainless steel pocket clip. Includes MOLLE compatible black nylon pouch sheath.
ABLE Lock: The “Ambidextrous Bar Lock Enhanced” or ABLE Lock incorporates superior finish and geometry for smoother operation, a tougher lock bar and Wolff omega springs making it an excellent evolution of its close cousin the AXIS lock mechanism.
Bohler N680: A highly corrosion-resistant steel, popular in dive knives. Bohler-Uddeholm designed N680 for the cutting tools requiring higher corrosion resistance and a durable cutting edge such as industrial meat processing knives. High corrosion resistance and toughness with good edge retention.
