Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I have a titanium dive knife in a sheath mounted on either side of my dodger within easy reach from the winches. The purpose of these knives is to cut sheets should anyone's hand be caught in the winches. Every crew is told where these knives are. My personal knife depends on what I'm doing. I usually carry a Gill stainless emergency knife with a serrated blade that will cut any line quickly. They are designed to used wwhen launching a liferaft.
