      Unfortunately, pretty sure this would class as “brass knuckles” in many States.

      It’s a shame, because it looks like an interesting assemblage of tools – but the glass breaker button is the most worthless, while a strap cutter blade would be much more useful in its place.

      In my experience, the number of times I’ve had to use a small pocket tool to break automotive glass while not wearing turnout gear (which always has a glass breaker in one of the pockets) can be counted on the fingers of one foot. It just doesn’t need to happen that often, certainly not enough to justify the number of tools out there with glass breaker options on them.

        Re-reading this, I see I forgot to include suggested changes as I’d intended.

        1) I’d put a horizontal tab within the ring, to turn it into a bottle opener and to negate possible perceived use as brass knuckles.

        2) I’d turn the round bottle tab lifter into a strap cutter – rarely in civilian EMS used to cut straps, but great for cutting clothing.

      I agree completely with Weaver.
