Re: What sailing knife do you use?
.......or for pryiing a fouled line that's overwrapped on a winch. There's another urgent need for the marlinspike.
IMHO, if you can't clear the override by pulling vertically, you need to relieve the pressure with a rolling hitch.
Using a marlinspike is inviting line and finger damage. The wrong tool for the job and not on my boat. I've seen a marlin spike missused for many things, rather like hammers and screwdrivers.
