Fast Deploying Knife & Rescue Hook, Plus Built-In Glass Breaker
The Benchmade 9170 Auto Triage drop-point knife has grips made of a lightweight yet strong combination of aluminum and rugged G10 composite. Even better, both its blade and rescue hook have Benchmade’s AXIS Auto deployment system, so when you hit one of the ambidextrous control studs on either end of the 9170’s grip, the blade or hook fully deploys and locks open. There’s also a glass breaker built into the end of the hook.
The 9170 Auto Triage’s drop-point blade is made of best-grade Austrian N680 steel that’s easy to sharpen, retains a keen edge - and is highly resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for use in wet environments.
