It's an Essential for Any Key Ring.

Here's a great ôtag along" cutting tool just released from CRKT®. The K.E.R.T™ (Key ring Emergency Rescue Tool) is the brainchild of designer Ray Kirk, and represents his spin on the strap cutter.

Designed to easily carry on a key ring, it can always be with you when and where you might need it. The strap cutter blade is recessed to safely and readily cut the seat belt, webbing or clothing material you ôfeed" into it as you pull cut, without exposing the surrounding area to harm. And, Kirk incorporated a flat end screwdriver, oxygen tank opener and ¼" hex wrench into the K.E.R.T. for added utility even for the professional user.

This is one of those no-brainer tools everyone should have that could very well save a life one day. Heck, at this price have several—on all of your key rings, use around the house or down on the farmàthey make great baling twine cutters!

The K.E.R.T. knife manufacturer's suggested retail price is $7.99.
