All the Essentials You Need for Emergencies at Your Fingertips
When you need one tool for a rescue, bank on the Gerber 22-41870 Hinderer Combat Life Saver Knife with Serrated Edge. Rick Hinderer, a firefighter and knife designer, conceived and designed this knife based on real-life experiences, giving it some of the most important features a firefighter will need while keeping the size small and convenient.

The knife has a 3.5-inch, sharp serrated blade that safely slices through seatbelts, and it will cut through just about anything you'll encounter in the field. The knife also features a window punch and an oxygen tank valve opener.

The knife is crafted with an attention to detail: it includes large features and mechanisms so that it can be used while wearing turnout gloves without problems. An oversized thumbstud makes it easy to open the blade, and the ergonomic handle keeps your hand comfortable while you work.

Gerber's History of Ingenuity
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular, Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.

For more than half a century, Gerber Legendary Blades has been helping people fend for themselves. Gerber designs popular, dependable tools and knives along with other outdoor gear that helps users accomplish whatever tasks they may be faced with, promoting the lost art of self-reliance.

I am an Industrial Firefighter and bought this knife thinking it was just what I needed to carry on the job. When it arrived in the mail I was excited to find that it felt as sturdy as people had boasted in reviews. I started using it my first day on shift, cutting lashing, chord, and zip ties throughout the day. It fell from my pocket, in the closed position, once from height of about four feet. Later on shift when I sat down to sharpen it, I noticed that two screws had become loose. One screw attached the thumb stud on the blade, and the other loose screw attached the seatbelt cutter. The loose seatbelt hook screw allowed the hook to deploy simply by flicking the knife. This was not what I was expecting from one day of useage in non-emergency mode. I have carried the same Benchmade brand knife for over four years, and used it for everything without it dissapointing me. It doesn't have the bells and whistles that I bought the Gerber for, but it never started falling apart on me. Undoubtedly this review is going to upset all the consumers who love this product, so dont start slamming me about how I dont know anything about knives. I'm simply giving an honest review of MY experience with the Gerber CLS.

I am a US Army Veteran, and one of the many hats I had to wear was being a Combat Lifesaver.
A Combat Lifesaver is not highly trained as a Combat Medic or even a paramedic, the program was designed to provide advanced first aid until a medic could arrive on scene. That being said, everyone in my company still called me "Doc".
I fell in love with Gerber Knives when I first joined the US Army, but those were all the fixed blade knives. My first Gerber folding knife was the original E-Z-Out made back in 1995. Unfortunately it is now at the point to where it has to be sharpened weekly to keep that shaving quality edge. So I finally decided to upgrade.

I was first looking at F.A.S.T. series knives when I saw the Hinderer Combat Lifesaver by Gerber, and immediately fell in love. I was not disappointed.

As always, my knife arrived wickedly sharp as one expects from a Gerber product. I noticed that it was easy to open with my thumb, so I decided to give it the E-Z-Out flick and was happily surprised when it opened. It was a little stiff, but a dab of Liquid Wrench fixed that stiffness. Then I decided to test the seatbelt cutter on an old cargo strap and it worked properly.
I have not been able to test autoglass breaker and oxygen tank screw, but the autoglass breaker is well designed and placed and should be easy to use.
I am sure my buddies in my volunteer fire department will be impressed to see this knife and will recommend it to all my friends and family.

Update: 1/9/16
I just visited the Gerber Gear website and found out that they are asking for $90 for the Hinderer CLS, so this is definitely a bargain.

Brother likes it. He works as a paramedic.

I chose this as a Christmas present because it has a standard + serrated blade. This makes it more functional than the serrated only model made for paramedics.

The reasoning is this: the serrated only has a dull tip, which is supposed to make it a safer tool for removing clothing/seatbelts from patients and not accidentally stabbing them. However, this knife already comes with a seatbelt cutter/clothing cutter built in. So why lose the extra functionality a sharp blade portion adds when you can already cut seatbelts/clothes safely using the provided tool?

I'm sure there is some application in which the serrated only, blunt tip version might be better (like cutting someone free from thick rope that the seatbelt cutter cant fit around). But this seems highly unlikely.

I feel that the sharp portion of the blade is a welcome addition, giving this knife more utility than the serrated only version.

My brother agrees.

I'm a firefighter and have already used this knife at one accident scene to cut the seat belt off an injured victim. This knife is tough, well made and has already proven it's worth to me and the others in my unit.

I have owned this knife for a few years now. Can't remember where I originally purchased from. It has been a great knife though. Heavy in the pocket, doesn't stay sharp for as long as I would think a knife should under general use (opening taped up boxes, maybe cutting thru cardboard on the rare occasion or zip ties...etc). It has taken a pretty good beating over the years and held up pretty well. At this time it catches when I try to open or close it and the only way to do either is torque the blade over to the side ever so slightly and then it will go. the thumb button has also chipped due to being dropped at some point. again over all it has done its job. I'm going to see if Gerber will stand by their product warranty and fix the knifes issues. I am looking to replace it anyway if they do or do not.

I always have this knife in my right front pocket for firefighter / EMT volunteer duty. Super sharp, high quality, good weight. My previous knife's metal clip caught on the door of the heavy rescue vehicle when I hopped out one day and the clip ripped off. This metal clip is much more secure and thick metal with three small bolts holding it on…it has also caught on the door of a vehicle, but it only bent about 1/4 inch outward and didn't damage the bolts so I used needle nose pliers to bend it back and it's as good as new (minus a few teeth marks in the metal clip from the pliers).

The one thing I would change on this knife is the thumb mechanism to open the blade. It takes firm, consistent pressure and my thumb to open it one-handed (as I often have to do on an emergency call since my other hand is holding a tool or a patient or something) and has slipped a few times and nearly cut myself (and once I dropped the knife and it clicked fully open when it hit the floor and bounced up, open, towards my leg…). My previous knife was spring loaded, assisted open and that was much easier, safer, and nicer than this opening mechanism.
