This tool, although claimed to be designed for EMTs, is a fantastic emergency tool for anyone. It’s perfect for car emergency kits. It’s also a great addition for a first aid kit.
- You can feel the quality and durability in your hand as you hold it.
- The fully serrated blade comes razor sharp and cuts with ease.
- The pocket clip is strong and clips secure to your pocket.
- The screwdriver bit seems to be slightly loose. I’m not concerned about the bit falling out but it wiggles a bit inside the tool.
Based off of some tests I’ve performed with this product, I can tell it is robust and capable of assisting and rescuing either myself or another person in an emergency situation. I have tested the cutting capability of the fully serrated blade on the RX and it does its job flawlessly. It cuts fast and precise.
I like the concept of the exchangable bit driver on the end of the tool. This tool has a uniqur bit which is the carbide window breaker. I have not had the opportunity to test that out so I cannot speak for that aspect of the multitool. However I have EDC-ed this tool quite a bit, and the screwdriver does i’s job quite well.
I will say that the bit seems shakey when it’s being used. I don’t know if that’s normal or not. But it still seems to be secure.
The product feels great in hand. You can feel the quality and I feel safe when I go on longer car rides when I have this tool in my pocket.
I have had 8 months experience with this product, a completely positive experience.
