Here’s something you don’t see every day.
A law enforcement officer knew his wife was ready to give birth any day, and was at the ready for when the call came. Little did he know that he would be the one delivering his own child, or that his 5.11 Tactical knife would be to put to the task of cutting the umbilical cord! Racing home to collect his wife who had begun labor, it became apparent that they weren’t going to make it to the hospital. Thinking fast (and still in uniform from patrol) his handy tactical folder severed the cord and welcomed the baby into the world. Most people use their knives daily, to open letters and boxes, to cut cord and rope and MRE packages, but this story… Carrying a knife as a tool and as a weapon is always a good idea. As this exceptional story proves it can be quite handy for other uses!
