Knives on board are needed for cutting and generally in an emergency. This knife can be carried easily, you can open it with one hand, the blade is long enough to cut a rope in one strike. The blade locks when you open it.
I have collected a few over the years. I was given one of these for Christmas and I haven't used it aboard yet. It is a great knife. Its one handed facility is the best of any knife I have.
