Benchmade 365BK Outlast Rescue Knife
Benchmade 365BK Outlast Axis/Option Lock Dual Blade Rescue Knife, Black 3.59" Blades with Black G10 Handles
Rescue situations require the right tool, so why not have all those tools in the same place. The 365 Outlast, featuring the new Benchmade OPTION™ lock, is just that. Benchmade combined the strength and versatility of the AXIS® lock with two blades, giving you the flexibility needed to get the job done. The S30V drop-point blade opens quickly with the traditional thumb stud and the thicker, fully serrated, opposing bevel 3V blade uses the integrated O2 wrench for rapid deployment. A carbide tipped glass breaker and integrated rescue hook round out this rescue tool.

In a day and age where knives have become increasingly specialized for particular uses or lifestyles, it can be hard to find a knife that will do it all. Short of purchasing a multi-tool, many professionals end up having to carry and maintain a variety of individual tools that are necessary to the functions of their job. While this may not seem like the end of the world to someone that is required to wear a vest on duty, keeping track of your tools can become a difficult task, especially when adrenaline is running high. Having produced a variety of knives and tools for first-responders over the years, The Benchmade team wanted to create a comprehensive knife that could handle the rigors of duty for paramedics, search and rescue personnel, and firefighters.
The Benchmade 365 Outlast is the latest addition to a line of rescue products that include rescue hooks, Benchmade took the most commonly used features and built them into the Outlast. This knife is a first of its kind for Benchmade, running two full length blades on the same pivot and patent-pending lock, making it easy for users to access and disengage each blade with one hand. Similar to the look and feel of the AXIS® lock, the new 365’s locking mechanism is appropriately titled the OPTION™lock.
The primary blade is a traditional fine-edge drop-point cut from CPM-S30V, while the secondary option is a fully serrated opposing bevel CPM-3V blade for hard use tasks and abrasive cutting power., The primary blade is engaged by a traditional thumbstud, whereas the secondary blade can be deployed by a rectangular hole that doubles as an O2 wrench. The textured G10 handles leave enough space to access the O2 wrench without having to open the blade. With integrate a carbide tipped glass breaker, intended to shatter tempered glass windows with ease. In addition to the glass breaker, the 365 Outlast has a safety hook hidden in the handle of the knife, capable of cutting seat belts, clothing, and footwear.
