Re: What sailing knife do you use?

A friend just gifted me one for the new boat. Came up with a Victorinox Mariner. First 2/3 of the longish blade is serrated and the rest is just as sharp and locks, too ! Can opener, bottle opener (actually a spanner for the SiG or AMT gas adjustement ring, but I digress) Nice marlinspike for being flat and incorporates a shackle key. Of course, the ubiquitous tweezer and toothpick ride in the scales . I use a small dog lead to hook to the end ring and my belt. Drop it in the thigh ocket and it's always handy. Cuts double braid and whatever in a hurry...including flesh..DAMHIK
