Sheepfoot, or rescue blades, are notable due to their lack of a pointed tip. This lack of an acute tip diminishes the chance of poking or puncturing anything when cutting in emergency situations where adrenaline kicks in and motor skills and coordination diminish. The rounded blades of the Spyderco Rescue readily slide under clothing and bindings making them the preferred blade shape of emergency technicians, rescue personnel and anyone working around livestock. This version has an orange fiberglass-reinforced nylon handle. Features: The Rescue has a flat saber-ground, SpyderEdge, VG-10 blade that ends in a sheepfoot safety tip, It has an oversized Spyderco round hole for unencumbered opening access with we or gloved hands, Fiberglass reinforced nylon handles come molded with Volcano Grip texturing for preferred traction and improved ergonomics, Backlock locking mechanism with David Boye Dent, Steel clip positions the knife for tip-up pocket carry.
