Benchmade's Triage Utility Knife is a dynamic triple utility tool that includes a knife, safety cutter, and glass breaker.
This triple utility tool includes a knife, safety cutter, and glass breaker. The sheepsfoot blade shape has no point on the tip, very little to no belly and the spine of the blade curves down to meet the edge. It is used in applications where slicing is the main requirement, and a point is either not needed or would actively get in the way. The lack of a point prevents the rescuer from inadvertently injuring a victim who is being cut free from something restrictive. The blade is made out of N680, a chromium-molybdenum conventionally produced stainless steel with the addition of vanadium and nitrogen. This material has excellent corrosion-resistance properties, especially in salt water; good hardenability; high-obtainable hardness; high-wear resistance; and the ability to preserve keenness. The safety cutter is crafted out of 440C, a high-chromium stainless steel with a terrific balance of good hardness and corrosion resistance. 440C takes a nice edge and is fairly easy to resharpen. A patented Benchmade exclusive, the AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega-style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself. The Triage Utility Knife is an excellent, value-priced steel tool for its performance.
