I wish someone made a serrated chisel head diving knife with a spike included. Something I could swim with and hang on the helm ready for action.
Actually that does sound ideal. A diving sheath knife with a marlinspike. Every consider making one? You could just remove the spike from a folding knife. Drill a hole in the handle of your favorite dive knife and bolt it on. Adjust tension with a nylock washer, add a little loc-tite and there you go. The spike wouldn't be locking, but you could achieve your goal for the price of your dive knife, a cheap folder (with spike) and some lock-tite.
