Gerber lives up to its reputation again for producing quality tools for reasonable prices with the Gerber Crisis Hook. The Gerber Crisis Hook is one of those tools that you hope you never have to use but are glad you have it when you do.
The hook itself is made of a nice heavy-duty metal that runs the length of the tool as a single piece. Covering the skeletonized handle is a very grippy rubber over molded coat. The hook on the end works perfectly for removing clothing, cutting seatbelts, or even wires. I haven’t ran into anything yet that the blade couldn’t get through. On the opposite end the Gerber Crisis Hook has a pointed glass punch as well as a built-in oxygen tank wrench.
The sheath is a 2 inch plastic piece that has a malice clip for mounting to Molle gear. It attached easily to a molle panel but keeps the blade in a little too tightly. It does take a pretty strong pull in order to deploy the tool.
At 8 inches overall and only 3oz the Gerber Crisis Hook is a perfect tool to add to your go bag or you medical kit in your vehicle. Personally, I keep it attached near my seat belt in my truck so that it is with arms reach if and when I need it.
