Re: What sailing knife do you use?

Thanks for all the opinions and experience so far. One major thing I need to reconcile is fixed vs folder. In the fixed category it looks like rafting PFD knives and SCUBA BCD knives are contenders.

If I go for a folder it'll be the Boyd knife or the Wichard. I like the idea that the Boyd knife will never rust and practical sailor really liked it, but I wouldn't want the marlinspike breaking off on a knife that costs that much.....

Check this out, Practical Sailor reviewed sailing knives:
