This Rescue Assist knife has been outfitted with an H-1 steel blade and a high-visibility yellow FRN handle.
The Assist Salt, like the Rescue Assist has a handful of features. Its patented blunt-tipped blade is eighty-percent SpyderEdged for aggressively cutting seat belts and fibrous material. The last inch of the tip Spyderco left PlainEdge for detailed cutting (think sharpening pencils). The wavy pattern cut from the top of the blade (created by a fireman from Sweden) and along the inside of the handle let you place a piece of rope (between the half-open blade and handle) and scissor the blade shut- especially convenient for cutting rope in-and-around flesh without having to fully open/expose the knife's blade. In the closed position, squeeze the blade deeper into the handle and a retractable carbide tip protrudes out from the base for breaking glass. Outlined in the handle's spine is a shrill and attention-pitched survival whistle. Carries left/right handed, tip-up by means of a tension wire clip.
