Ferrum Rescue is a tool designed for rescue missions, developed in collaboration with Andrea Micheli, military and law enforcement expert, journalist and shooting instructor. It has an extremely compact grip and three blades carrying out the following functions:
The first and main blade is 3 millimetres thick. It is designed for a much heavy use and to prevent the edges of the other two blades from wearing prematurely. Its serration allows it to cut bigger ropes or textiles, whereas the plain edge acts as a proper knife. The second blade is a scalpel, which can be used to make extremely clear cuts and perform emergency actions.
The third and the smallest, located on the back of the main blade, is a lanyard cutter that can also be employed to cut aramid paracords. The combination of the main blade and the scalpel allows the user to operate an emergency cut to free the injured from their clothes. Both lanyard cutter and scalpel can be replaced.
Ferrum Rescue has a thin and compact shape, its anodized anticorodal aluminum handle scales making its grip light, slim as well as resistant. It can be placed in a pocket, in small flashlight holsters or in a single M.O.L.L.E. system webbing. It is also equipped with a hard-metal glass breaker on the bottom part. It comes with a flipper assisted opening. The blade rotates on ball bearings resulting in a fluid and firm movement. This mechanism allows the user an easy and rapid opening of the blade, even with just one hand. The locking mechanism is the time-tested liner lock.
The reversible clip is located on the back. Ferrum Rescue is available in two versions, Red and Black; the first has a clear rescue connotation as it helps the user find the knife in the event of a fall. The second has a more tactical and less conspicuous feature.
