The Boker Plus Rescom Tactical Knife won’t be wasted on whittling twigs. This highly specialized rescue blade is designed to easily cut through heavy duty seat-belts, para cord, climbing rope, strapping material, and heavy boxes. The introduction of this blade quickly caught the military’s eye, and virtually every other type of rescue organization. This is an absolute must for any rescue or medical kit, but I can see using this blade way more than a standard pocket knife. The blade is made of AUS-8 steel, and has a fiberglass-reinforced nylon handle. This compact knife is meant to be carried with you at all times as it weighs about 2.4 oz, and is about 4.5″ when the blade is drawn.
