Urban Survival Tips: Spring Loaded Punch vs Fixed Point Glass Breakers

This is a look at two different types of Urban Survival Tools. First the Schrade MAGIC and then the Sog Escape, which I got from Brownells in the Echo Sigma Emergency Systems – Runner System that I reviewed previously here. The MAGIC has a spring loaded punch and the SOG Escape has a fixed point glass breaker. Both do the job and are great pieces of urban survival gear.

I also quickly test how well each knife cuts a seat belt.  The MAGIC faired a bit better, but the SOG pulled through ok in the end as well.

What knife or tool do you keep in your car to break glass or cut seat belts in an emergency?
