On the heels of the successful Hinderer Rescue, we bring you the new CLS (Combat Life Saver) model with non-reflective black finish for tactical applications. The multi functional, award winning design features a combination 440A stainless steel fine and serrated blade with sharpened tip and built-in seat belt cutter, window punch and oxygen tank wrench.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
440A Stainless Steel - 440A is a US standard of a martensitic stainless steel. It is known to keep a hard edge but not as tough as some of the other martensitic stainless steel.
