First and foremost, a rescue tool must meet one central requirement: in an emergency and stressful situation, it must be quick, easy and reliable to use. The technically best solution to meet this requirement is a construction with an automatic thrust blade (OTF, short for Out-of-The-Front) with a robustly constructed and carefully crafted mechanism. This poses a legal challenge for manufacturers in Germany, because according to the German Weapons Act, OTF knives are initially prohibited (WaffG §1 Paragraph 4 in conjunction with Annex 1 Section 1 Subsection 2.1.1). For the rescue tool Boker Plus Kalashnikov Rescue OTF, however, there is now a notice of assessment from the Federal Criminal Police Office, which negates the weapon and prohibition properties of this tool due to the shape of the blade. (File number SO13-5164.01-Z-543) Possession and even carrying of this tool in public (in Germany) is permitted spring out or slide back completely into the handle.
The heart of the rescue tool is a classic jumping mechanism with thumb slide, which allows the blade to spring out powerfully when activated or to slide back completely into the handle. The absolutely reliable and proven mechanism with a powerful spring was adopted from the OTFs of the jumping knife series Kalashnikov, which Boker has been selling abroad for many years, e.g. in France or in the USA.
The blade designed as a rescue hook with a rounded tip prevents accidental injury during a third-party or self-rescue. The cutting edge with inner radius behind the tip enables quick and intuitive clipping of harnesses, cord and kernmantel ropes, as well as safe cutting of clothing of injured persons. The biting serrated edge in the second half of the cutting edge also enables the cutting of thick and encrusted ropes. D2 stainless steel was used for the blade due to its extreme edge retention in the pull-cut area. The handle body is provided with pronounced finger grooves for the required grip safety and is additionally textured to prevent slipping. The aluminum material used for the handle has the required strength combined with low weight. The indispensable glass breaker for breaking side windows has been provided with an effective steep taper. The core of the glass breaker is made of extremely hard tungsten carbide. For easy replacement when worn, the glass breaker has been screw-threaded to the handle. A deep-carry spring steel clip and nylon pouch.
