Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I've gotten this far with the regular Buck lockblade in a belt sheath, but this year I'll be on the ocean. My son got me a mountain climbers knife to clip to my PFD. It has a blunt tip (but good for prying) serrated on one edge, smooth on the other. It has one opening to open O2 cylinders and one to open bottles. It clips into its scabbard and pops out when both sides are squeezed.

I'll find the model and post a pic later; I'll see how well it works pretty soon (looking out the window).
