Sometimes a traditional knife just isn’t the right tool for the job. For example, I’ve broken knives while trying to use them as pry bars, and many workplaces limit the kinds of pocket knives you can carry or ban them entirely. Wilson Tactical’s “Cop Tool” is a stout multipurpose blade meant for police and rescue personal — that also happens to be perfect for anyone seeking a tough not-a-knife tool.

The Cop Tool has an overall length of 6″, of which only 1¾” is taken up by the serrated edge/prying end. This provides exelent leverage when used for prying or scraping. A seat belt cutter is ground into the blade as well, but also works great for cutting thing gauge wire and stubborn zip ties. A thumb divot, finger grove, and paracord braided handle allows for control of the knife Cop Tool in several positions.

The $100 price tag is the only thing keeping me from having one. For an extra $10 bucks Wilson Tactical will laser etch up to 20 characters onto the tool for you.

    I hate to say this, because I think the tool is cool looking, but $100 is about $60 too much for that.

  2. I’d say $80 took much.

    Wilson’s tools are wicked sexy. But if EVER there was an application that cried out for stainless mass production instead of handmade, parkerized finished tool steel, it’s this.

  3. Countycomm.com sells a similar tool for a lot less cash. You’d have to customize it a bit, but it’s only $12.

    Good one Peepers, i think i might be getting one of those instead.

    like Kurt and Jonathan said, 100 bucks is waaaay to much for something like this, i was tempted though because it’s my kind of knife…or knife like object.

  5. Perry Jones says:

    Good link Mr Peepers, looks like a much better value there.

  6. Eric Dykstra says:

    one difference i just noticed is that the County Comm tool is considerably larger than the cop tool. If you’ve got that bad boy on your belt people are certainly going to notice.

    Seriously, how did you not post the Peter Atwood knives with this?

    They’re so cool.

    I love the Atwood tools. I have a Prybaby from way back when he was only making Prybabies and Mini-Prybabies and they were always sold out then. Pete’s a seriously nice guy too. I met him at the Blade show when I got my Prybaby. I didn’t even know he had expanded the line so much, I’m definitely eyeing that Crawdaddy when he makes some more!

    I second the vote for Peter Atwood. I love my Prybaby.

    I remember seeing the Atwood stuff stuff on boing boing gagetes. Very cool no doubt, as with the cop tool it’s way too rich for my blood. damn these custom blade makers and their tempting wares!

    I have the Wilson Cop Tool that I purchased over a year ago. I agree that it is expensive, but less expensive than the Atwoods I have. Notwithstanding the price, it is one of the most useful go-to tools that I use inside and out. It’s tough, and it’s “scary sharp.” I guarantee that it’s the best and last knife that I will ever need. I rewapped mine, and I had DragonLeather.net make me quick draw from the pocket case for it. If you invest in fine, hardworking tools, this thing will hack cut, saw, chisel, and cut with precision, and you won’t break it and it will stay sharp. I have lots of shop knives, but this is the only one I need.

    I have one of these fine tools and from personal use you can put this knife through hell twice. It’s made from d2 tool steel which is tough stuff. I’ve tried to sharpen it with a file and it just slides right off. The price is steep but cheap compare to what the knife can take compared to other over charged multiuse knifes.

    This tool is being mass produced by Boker. I’ve seen it as cheap as 30$. The only Boker knife I own is a CLB Rescom, and it is very sharp and well made. I would expect nothing less from their cop tool.

  14. Sway says:

    County Comm has made a smaller version of their EOD tool. Might be better for you if you were concerned about size before. I am having my EOD tool customized next week into a pry knife/rescue tool.

    Also check out the KA-Bar BK3 / Tac Tool, for something slightly larger
