Benchmade Triage Knife, 916

Benchmade 916 Triage Knife

The Triage by Benchmade has won a ton of awards.  It is a great knife.  Built with rescue workers in mind, the Triage features a glass breaker, a secondary blade that is a seatbelt or strap cutter and then a main blade.  On this newer variation of the Triage, the main blade features an opposing bevel.  The 916 features a foreshortened tip. The idea is that you can then slide the blade point first under a tight spot without piercing skin.  So if you are trying to rescue someone–you can a actually slide the blade into tight spots without hurting them. The first Triage is the 915 series, this new series is the 916.  Both are available.  Let me know which you like best.
