    I carry a Spyderco and it has never failed me in 10+ years of service. Correct what all posted about not using it to cut clothes etc...

    I'm FD, not EMS. As mentioned earlier, what about a Leatherman tool? Especially the larger "Supertool" -- it has a bunch of tools on it, and is big and heavy duty enough to do things.

    At the firehouse and at incident scenes, most people know I always have a knife of one sort or another on me... and it seems like people are always asking to borrow it. I am surprised at how many fire/ems people don't carry knives. On the other hand, I see some people who get fancy, expensive knives / rescue knives and essentially refuse to use them because they "don't want to make it dull" or "damage the blade". The Leatherman and/or folding Buck knives I carry everyday are to be used.
