Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I don't carry a knife, but I do carry a gun. I find the .380 hydrashock hollow points will blast a knot out of a rope quickly. A well placed shot or two will cut the line as needed. FMJ ball rounds will open any shackle very quickly. Gripped by the slide, the butt makes a good hammer. If your hands are cold, fire off a clip then put it in your pocket to warm your fingers. It's a great tool for fishing as well, as long as the fish are near the surface.

Full Combat Sailing can be very rewarding.
