I carry a Smith and Wesson and it is by far the best tactical knife that I have ever had.

Firefighters were created so cops could have heroes!
I found I had a hard time getting an edge on the straight side at first, but once I got that sorted, it took and held an edge beautifully.

Tell him what you want and if he hasn't made it yet he can probably do it for you.
You'll pay more for his stuff......but it will last you a lifetime......beautiful work.
ps.....I've seen his Harley Davidson knife.....forged from a Harley chain....if I had the $$'s I'd buy it.
I have the Gerber Hinderer Rescue Knife (http://www.thefirestore.com/store/produ ... ted_blade/ )
This is the second one I have had (lost the first and missed it so much I got another one) and I carry it with me all the time. I love this knife and have used it in all sorts of senarios from rescues to everyday openening of boxes. Although the window punch isn't spring loaded like the S&W, I have never had an issue beaking glass, the seatbelt cutter works for seatbelts as well as zapstraps etc, and I like the fact that the serations on the blade still allow you to cut everyday materials. I have also used the O2 wrench several times and it is so much easier than trying to find the wrench in the middle of an emergency.
I know that both the Gerber and the S&W (several of the firefighters in our hall have these) are both quality tools and you will be happy woth either, but I can tell you I like the Gerber and it has worked well under all sorts of conditions for me. (Gerber should be giving me a commission for this )
Good luck on your decision!
