United States Patent 1191 Rogers 1 Feb. 11, 1975 SURVIVAL HAND WEAPON  Inventor: Dale R. Rogers, 2647 Flamingo Dr.,
Fayetteville, NC. 28306  Filed: Dec. 19, 1973 [211 App]. No.2 426,258
DURING THE VIETNAM CONFLICT A VERY COURAGEOUS MAN, DALE ROGERS, EMERGED AS A MEMBER OF OUR SPECIAL MILITARY ELITE UNITS. ATTACHED TO THE SPECIAL GROUPS, MIKE FORCES, LLDB 4, LLDB 5 AND THE ASA ...... REAL TIME SURVIVAL BECAME AN EVERYDAY REQUIREMENT FOR DALE ROGERS. NECESSITY FORCED DALE ROGERS TO INVENT THE SURVIVAL AND RESCUE TOOL TODAY, AS A CIVILIAN HOLDING OVER 20 COMBAT COMMENDATIONS, DALE ROGERS IS A FULL TIME VA COUNSELOR TO HIS VIETNAM BROTHERS. THE SRT-1, THE ORIGINAL SURVIVAL AND RESCUE TOOL WAS CONCEIVED, DEVELOPED, TESTED, AND USED BY THE SPECIAL FORCES DURING THE VIETNAM ERA. THE DALE ROGERS SRT-1 IDEA WAS FURTHER REFINED AND PATENTED AS A SURVIVAL AND RESCUE TOOL. PRODUCTION WAS STARTED IN SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH AND MARKETING EFFORTS, TO RESPONSIBLE PROFESSIONAL OUTDOORSMEN, CONTINUED UNTIL THE COUNSELING ACTIVITIES OF DALE ROGERS BECAME A FULLTIME DEDICATION. DURING 1988, THE COMPANY WAS SOLD TO THE SAGAD CORP. UNDER THE CONDITIONS THAT THE INTEGRITY AND QUALITY, BUILT INTO THE ORIGINAL SRT-1, WOULD NEVER BE COMPROMISED. SAGAD CORP. AGREED.
THE ULTIMATE SURVIVAL AND RESCUE TOOL ...... SRT-1, IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. THE ONLY KNOWN COMPARISON OF THE SRT-1 THAT CAN BE MADE IS TO A KNIFE. HARDLY A FAIR COMPARISON WHEN YOU CONSIDER THAT THE SRT-1 CAN BE USED AS A WEDGE TO SPLIT LOGS. Using it as a spear can be the difference between starving and food. Now consider the uses as an axe...... A chisel...... Plane...... Wire stripper ...... A hoe...... Bottle opener ...... A glass and tile cutter ...... Nail puller ...... A knife ...... Saw Game Dresser ...... A handle. In addition, the back cutter can tear thru the sheet metals as found in a helicopter, plane, auto or a wrecked 4x4. Versatile and safe, the srt-1 is a workhorse. We certainly agree that the SRT-1 is a one piece mil spec casting of440c stainless steel, a rust resistant high carbon tool steel, 4 7/16" X 3 1/2" X 1/4" tough, strong and capable of taking and holding a sharp edge under the most desperate survival conditions. SRT-1 is the safest tool of its type available today. The unique finger holes provide the most slip free grip of any design known. It can be held securely even when coated with oil, water or mud. The survival and rescue tool was designed and built to save the life of the person using it even if your hands are frozen, burned or broken you remain able to slip on the tool and use it when you couldn't even grip, open the blade, or hold a standard. You can swim, climb a rope, or fire a weapon with the uniquely designed handle that permits almost total use of your hands while holding the tool. The safety features built into the SRT-1 were designed to put the survival odds in your favor. Easy field conversions to functional implements are done by the nylon cord provided with the SRT-1. Use the SRT-1 to field dress a deer or cut yourself from a crashed auto, truck or aircraft. Make an axe to chop wood. Use the srt-1 with a rock to split logs, fasten the SRT-1 to the end of a limb and convert it to a spear. Tie the SRT-1 to the middle of a small branch to create a plane that can be used to shape a bow arrows or other hunting equipment. A chisel can be made by holding the SRT-1 on an angle and striking it with a limb or rock. The saw will function well on wood, metal or bone. Use the "v" shaped wire stripper to field cut or strip wires. The back cutter easily splits metal. Normal carving and knife usage is done by using only three finger holes. This is brand new, unused, very, very sharp, unre-sharpened with leather case and nylon cord. The original 22 page, illustrated manual is included. This tool is from the original Dale Rogers production series before the company was sold to the SAGAD Corp.. The included manual is credited: "D.L.R. Knives, P.O.
