The best sailing knife I've used is a Boye Cobalt Carbide rigging knife. Available in either sheepsfoot or safety style blades, either serrated or smooth, and with or without marlinspike.

What I really like about these knives is that they cut line, and cut line, and cut more line...they stay pretty sharp for a good long time, cut even the nasty synthetic lines and DON'T RUST.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
