Spyderco Jumpmaster

The Spyderco Jumpmaster knife was designed to fit the needs of the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. When jumping out of a plane, airborne servicemen are attached to a static line, jumping one per second with a Jumpmaster insuring they get out and are clear of the plane and the next jumper. If someone doesn’t clear because of equipment failure or just poor luck, the Jumpmaster is ready with a reliable cutting tool. Once clear of the aircraft jumpers still need a reliable and quick-cutting blade in case they need to cut themselves free.
