If you are looking for a multi-purpose cutting tool the 5.11 Tactical Double Duty Responder Tool. This tool features a combo edge blade, a cord/webbing blade and a carbide glass breaker.
The 5.11 Tactical Double Duty Responder Tool has an overall length of 8.65 inches when the main blade is locked in the open position and a length of 5.2 inches when the main blade is locked in the closed position. The combo edge blade is a 3.75 inch sheep’s foot blade with 3.5 inches of actual cutting edge. The cord/webbing blade is fully serrated and measures 1.6 inches with a 1 inch area of actual cutting edge. The carbide glass breaker can be found on the opposite end of the cord/webbing blade. To use the glass breaker you must close the cord/webbing blade in order to expose it for use.
Users will find the main blade easy to access with a rotate open mechanism. There is also the liner lock which locks the blade in place when it is opened for safety during use. There is an oval thumb hole which is big enough to allow the blade to be opened comfortably with the use of either hand even while wearing thicker gloves. The cord/webbing blade is on the opposite side and does not open ambidextrously because of the fact that the knife features pivoting locking blades. The liner lock for both of these blades is provided by a single piece of steel in the middle of the knife. You will find the liner lock for the cord/webbing blade to be on the back of the knife on the spine at the butt end. As mentioned above when the secondary blade is closed the carbide glass breaker tip is exposed. The knife features Rescue Orange FRN scales along with injection molded TPR grip points for more manageability of the tool.
All blades on the 5.11 Tactical Double Duty Responder Tool work well. It has a three position pocket clip though you may not consider this the type of tool you would have clipped to your pocket.

- Pivot end up, right side
- Pivot end up, left side
- Pivot end down, left side
You can also carry the tool pivot end down, right side but this would mean that each time you wanted to use the knife you would have to turn the knife around in your hand and then open it.
