A.T.R.'s Duty Knives Thread

Postby Chuk750 » Thu Dec 18, 2008 9:49 am

Can anyone recommend some good duty knives? I currently carry a CRKT "MY TIGHE" but I am looking to replace it.
I am leaning towards a boot knife as well, anyone carry one? If you do, do you have any suggestions on a good one?

What the heck? :ponder: I've never carried a knife for work. What do you use them for?

Many, many uses...
I use my duty knife on an almost everyday basis for alot of mundane tasks. Comes in very handy if you ever need to cut a seat belt.

Also, heaven forbid, if shit ever hits the fan and I can't access or use anything else I can usually access my knife...

Casey Jones is ready for war :!: :!:

I personally like the 5.11 C.U.B. JOURNEYMAN KNIFE, 51009, but its pretty expensive.

I dont have a knife.

I do have a nice multi-tool with a sharp knife. I bought it because I was seizing plates, etc. Needed the screwdriver handy. Wouldn't you know it... since I purchased it, I haven't needed it once. Go figure.

I'm a fan of Spyderco too. They use good steel in all their product. Go for an Endura- look at the "waved" version- it deploys faster that a switchbalde. warriorsandwonders has some of the best prices and service in canada.

endura on the bottom, police in the middle gunting on top (discontinued)

Someone's probably showed you this already, but if not... If you grab a licence plate and rip it back and forth and back and forth, it'll usually pop off.

haha.....that's stealthy.

I've always got the tow truck driver to do it. I have an old Leatherman Wave but it gets cold outside. ;)

Well I've been to a lot of accidents in the last two years, and I've yet to have to cut a seatbelt. The Fire Department and EMS are always there first, but I don't even know if they've had to.

I do have a blade on my leatherman that I use, mostly for opening packages and stuff, and for breaking into places.
