One of the nicest rigging/sailing knives I have seen was made by Kershaw. It has a rubberized grip, molded (not thin in width) so your fingers grip it easily; serrated blade so it cuts line quickly; a shackle knife and marlinspike on the back side. Everything is stainless so it won't rust. The only drawback is that none of the blades lock so you must be careful while using the marlinspike to work a knot loose but it still is nice to have on a pocket knife. Unfortunately Kershaw does not sell this knife anymore but they can be found used. If another company made a knife similar to it I would buy two.
