Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I have a wichard glowing three in one that I keep in my jacket pocket when sailing and a ceramic knife aboard for rope.

At first I wasn't sure how necessary a sailing knife was but I find myself using the wichard all the time. It is expensive but higher quality than similarly priced folding knives I've had.

Just had to get a ceramic because I was dulling the blade cutting my lines for whipping. I guess the 316 steel is softer.
