    1st review

    This is a great tool. It was designed by fireman for use in the field. It features a tool steel punch to make quick work of saftey glass, a spanner wrench to handle hose couplings, cutters for wires and cables, a slot to shut off gas valves, a pry bar for doors and windows, and a crazy set of plyers that have found a million uses!! I highly recommend this tool. Its large enough to handle most situations that arise and small enough to put in a tool bag or even a turn out pocket. Its under 2 pounds in weight so you hardly know you have it on you. I carry one personally and am working on getting them for all our trucks!!

    These things are nice, but every time I try to use them in a set of gloves they get hung up some how. Also if you have older bunker gear with the insides of your pockets a little frayed they tend to get tangled in that as well.

    Kinda handy tool to have in your bunker gear. Only downfall is the window punch is exposed and sharp. Would recommend finding a way to cover the punch part when not in use.

    This is a good tool, larger than I thought it would be. I hoped it would be able to fit in a pocket but it's too big. There are a couple different versions of sheaths out there to carry this tool.

    Nice looking a little pricey. I have seen a couple and think they aare a little to big to keep on your person.

    I'm the kind of guy who likes to have a plethora of tools at my disposal but not if they cost a lot, I've never been able to hold on to a tool for long during hard chaotic work. If you got the money this is a good tool to have!!
