G'day All

I am a TV cameraman based in New Zealand. Part of my regular duties is to film from helicopters. Safety is obviously an on going concern when being buffeted in a whirly bird. I have recently bought a Spyderco ‘Rescue’ knife as a emergency rescue tool to cut my way from my harness and the helio in the event of a ditching and was wondering what other members thought about this particular knife. When I served as a police officer I used to carry a Spyderco ‘Endura’ as back up and it never let me down!

Good choice. You can't go wrong with any Spyderco, but the Rescue is about perfect for your needs.

I have an SE Rescue 93 mm, and based on what you are planning, it sounds like you made a good choice:) I normally am a PE type of person, but that SE Rescue sure changed how I looked at SE:eek: That sucker really gets the job done:)

I used a Rescue 93mm, and now use an Atlantic Salt (same knife, different steel) as a utility knife. The 50/50 choil makes them very comfortable to hold, and the straight edge gives you lots of control.

I agree with Planterz,
The Atlantic Salt is a slight upgrade from the Rescue.
The choil is better designed as is the thumb-ramp.
And I have been very impressed with the H-1 steel.
Not to mention you get a titanium pocket-clip on the Atlantic Salt.

Good luck,
Allen.
