Ok so we all know that you favorite rescue knife can cut your seatbelt...we've seen it all before. But what you don't get to see a lot of is the glass breaker in action. Why is that? Well simple you don't want to break your window. And it is not nice to break you neighbors window (as much as you might want to). Windows, while easy to pick up at a junk yard, are messy to clean up and you only get one shot where seat belt can be cut several times.
Well fear not friends I have spent the time (and money) to bring you a video show just what happens when you take a rescue knife glass breaker to a car window.
A few notes to consider before watching:
The window are out of the car doors. There were only two advantages to keeping then in the car (that I can find). A-Making the window easier to break by keeping it more rigid. Also the glass be more contained. As you can tell in the video the glass went everywhere.

We were testing the Choate 'The Emergency Car Tool' and the Spyderco Rescue Assist. The Choate runs $20 and well to be honost...is not that great. The Spyderco is aroud $100 is a amazing! The video tells all.

And I was trying to be as safe as possible. I did have on gloves and was wearing safety glasses (which you never see because they look AWFUL on me) But I still got cut. And yes long sleeves would have helped. But really do you get in you car and think 'I may have to break my way out of my car today...I'll wear long sleeves' Probably not.

Enjoy the video,
Godspeed Y'All
