My wife is a paramedic and I bought her a pocket folder to carry on duty. While she likes having a knife, she tells me its to hard to get to when she is wearing her bunker gear and wants a sheath knife (folder). The one thing she did like about the knife I got her was that it had a seat belt cutter. Anyone know of a good folder that has a seat belt cutter and a sheath? Most of the ones I have seen are huge and I don't think she would like them. I stick with my ZT's and CRKT knives cause they work and I am not a real big knife guy besides that.
Why not just get a good belt sheath for a folding knife that she already has or likes, rather than trying to find a new knife that comes from the factory with a (crappy) sheath.
However, if you do want to get her a new knife, then Benchmade has some nice folders with strap cutters.
Take a look at the Triage.
It has orange handles, a sheepsfoot blade, a glass breaker, and a strap cutter:
Benchmade also sells some belt sheath pouches, but I cannot personally attest to their quality:
As 4track said, get a sheath to fit a folder she likes.
I will offer this suggestion, which I have been very happy with, the Spyderco Assist. https://www.spyderco.com/catal...tails.php?product=63
Easy opening with heavy gloves, blunt tip and serrate edge allows for sliding under a seat belt or clothing to cut away either, glass breaker (I've never used).
I carry mine behind my IFAK on my PC. It also carries well in a pocket. Years ago I saw the Coast Guard had them on their ditch vests.
Will look at getting her just a sheath......She picked out the knife she carry's now (A Smith and Wesson), but I think she needs something a little higher quality now that we know it's not going to end up left at home. She used to never carry a flashlight on her person, but I got her a small one and she now swears by it lol.
