Building on the success of his "Rescue" knife, Rick Hinderer designed the Hinderer CLS Folding Knife for Gerber with a focus on the needs of police and military personnel. The Combat Life Saver (CLS) features a 440A stainless steel 3.5" drop point blade with a partially-serrated edge to make short work of rope, fabric, straps, and just about anything else. Large dual thumb studs make it easy to open the blade with either hand, even when wearing gloves. For easier closing, Gerber employs a modified liner lock with a sliding release on the handle that is easier to close versus conventional liner locks - especially with gloves on. But this is more than an EDC knife. The CLS's handle integrates multiple tools that those who are first on the ground frequently need: a rope/strap cutter folds out, there is a universal oxygen tank valve wrench, and on the end is a glass breaker. This knife comes ready to use in convenient clamshell packaging.
