Re: What sailing knife do you use?

The Wichard knive does not flick open, nor do I want to.

I use the Marlin spike regularly to break knots that have seized. The shackle key is invaluable.

I wear the pock-it pouch on my pfd, which I always wear. The knive is on a lanyard attached to the pfd. I have a wrist strap on the mag lite.

I am often tethered; a knife is mandatory.
