The real helper in an emergency – developed in collaboration with rescue services. When every second counts!
The Victorinox Rescue Tool was developed and perfected in cooperation with emergency medical and rescue services in a five-year project. The key functions of this pocket tool can be opened in seconds and are ready for use immediately.
All parts have been subject to stringent tests; particularly the new window breaker and disc saw tools. The rounded belt cutter can be used to cut through seat-belts safely. The tool includes the most important functions for freeing someone trapped in a car. This is a great tool for those working in the rescue industry such as police, EMS and fire rescue teams that require the necessary tools for rescue at any time
All tools that have to be available quickly can be opened wearing gloves and are suitable for both right-handed and left-handed users. The one-handed blade and strong screwdriver (crate opener) are fixed in position when open thanks to the liner lock mechanism.
Even the look of the Rescue Tool, with its luminescent yellow grip shells, is something special. It is also supplied with a bright red/yellow nylon case and a wide belt loop that fits a range of special-purpose belts. As the window breaker and disc saw tools are subject to particular wear and tear when used, they are easy to replace.
