One of New York's finest was an NYPD officer named John D'Allara. Officer D'Allara was a long-time Spyderco collector who owned and used nearly every model we've made. Sadly he was one of the many police officers who never came out of the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001. When we approached the release date of our new rescue knife, we thought it fitting to name it in his honor. The D'Allara Rescue brings to market a full-sized rescue knife designed with the requirements of LEOs and EMTs in mind. Like most rescue/emergency knives its rounded sheepfoot blade. Its handle is three-dimensional and textured G10 on both sides. This makes for comfortable ergonomics and reduces fatigue while cutting long-term. Tucked inside the handle are rigid dual steel liners and a Ball Bearing Lock. The Ball Bearing Lock has an heavy-duty level strength rating. This means that the lock holds more weight per inch of blade than normal use knives. Comforting peace-of-mind when your knife could make the difference at an accident scene or on duty. Both the lock and the tension wire clip are ambidextrous. Pocket clip carries tip-up. Comes with box and papers. Excellent Condition.
