What kind of blade is it?
Folder or fixed blade?
Special blade on it?
I have a Eka Swede 10 folder in the med kit.
Jup a little spyderco ladybug h-1 serrated. Great for ripping though clothing. Small, but fits in my AMK comprehensive bag
I'm in the process of building my FAK and the plan is to include a small Spyderco folder in there...
If not the manbug, then a ladybug.
I really like Spyderco myself and will come right out and say it...it matters to me that Spyderco supports EDCF (EDCForums knives are big hits - start saving your money for the next one...coming sooooon ). If you support this place...I will support you and buy your knives.
EDIT : I'm more than likely going to be looking for a serrated version of the manbug/ladybug for my FAK...I hear they will cut through a seat-belt with ease.
I only have very small FAK's, with small blunt ended scissors and one of these razor blades. It may not be the most practical blade to carry in a FAK, but it's size and weight are good! I always have a knife on me anyway.
Assuming I'm not flying, I usually have a sterile disposable #11 scalpel for cutting splinters, etc. It could also be used by a medical pro to do an emergency trach. I also have either a multi tool plier or small side cut plier in or nearby, for fish hooks, etc.
I have a few sterile suture cutters in my FAKs. They're small curved razor type blades. Very handy for small cutting jobs.
I'm getting a benchmade 915 triage for Christmas. When I'm not EDC'ing it (I'm not a LEO,EMT,ect. I just like to have a knife I could use in an emergency if I had to or just as a unique edc blade) It will be in my FAK which is a maxpedition FR-1 which is usually in the car or in my bag.
In my hiking FAK was a little cheapo SAK included. It's about the size of a Vic classic. I might add a little OHO w/ serrated blade though in case I need to cut something free.
One FAK has a pocket straight razor, the other has a retractable scalpel. I also carry several knives on me.
I've almost always got my Boker rescue tool on me or in the bag that I'm carrying (I'm working on an ambulance at the moment but got paid out for it opening too easily on my first day and the medics teased me for it being 'illegal' which it's not but anyway now it rides in the comfort of my safety kit). So that covers rescue needs. In my FAK I have several suture cutters, a small blade and two scalpals.

Not a knife as such, but I keep medical shears in my medium and large FAKs. Like most EDCF members, unless I am flying carry on only, I always carry at least one knife or multitool on person anyway.
I keep the CRKT Ritter RSK MK5's in all of mine
No knife, but I have scissors in my FAK. (Mainly for cutting the "cut to size" band-aid. That's probably an incorrect English name for it.)
I put this cheap knife in my FAK. My FAK doubles as an extremely basic survival kit; matches, space blanket, etc.
To many people borrow my packs (Medical Missionaries and fellow medics). The one pack I carry has EMT Shears, Benchmade Rescue Hook, and Gerber Multi tool. That is what I carry in my infection control pack. That one is never loaned out.
Nope but I've got shears in it. If I need a knife I always have one on me and one in my pack. Oh, and there's also one on my multitool.
I got vic rescue tool Stay Glow in my FAK
