I'm writing some knife articles for a couple of magazines, which is great because I get knives to play with for a while and can purchase them with a huge discount. However, quite a few of these knives are advertised as tools for emergency response workers, police officers or soldiers. I've got the emergency part covered. I'm a volunteer with several SAR organizations, attend training sessions a few times a year and have friends in that line of work. So I know what an EMT, fireman or SAR worker need in a knife. The problem is that I don't have any first hand experience about what policemen or soldiers look for in a knife. Things like how much money you guys can sink into a blade or tool, what carry options work better when you've got to add a knife to all that gear that's already hanging on your belt or vest, etc. Any details you can give me will help a lot. I'm going to interview some GEOF (Argentine version of SWAT) guys that my academy is helping train, I feel like having some previous knowledge would help me ask better questions. You don't need to write a super long post with loads of technical details, just give me a general idea of what sort of knife or multitool (or rescue tool, etc.) you carry and what you like about it. Thanks!
