Re: What sailing knife do you use?

This came as a set with both a multi-tool and a lock blade knife.

The Husky multi-tool seems much heavier and studier than the Sheffield tool even though both are stainless steel.

Both of the knives are stainless steel with aluminum frames. Both have a serrated blade and both can be opened with one hand. However, the Sheffield has more of a flimsy, slightly wobbly feel. Also, the Husky has the notch where your index finger would go and has rubber on the lower edge for a better grip.

If the knife's serrated blade wouldn't cut it then you could use the blades on the multi-tool. The right blade has a fairly aggressive two step serrated edge while the blade on the left is a double row saw blade.

Husky is sold by Home Depot. I believe the Husky multi-tool is still the same (although without the pretty, blue metallic finish) but I don't think they still sell the knife. Promate has a folding divers knife but I don't know how sturdy they are.
