Re: Rigging knives

I have no pictures, but I like a serrated knife for the boat. And I have a Wichard marlinspike, and also a 'Traditional' fid (the semi-hollow type)

I use a pair of kitchen shears (also serrated) to cut Dyneema.

This site is great: L-36.com has a good tute on soft shackles

And I absolutely love my Brion Toss wands, and I thought his dvd "Eye splices" very well done, and his books good too.

Re: Rigging knives

Harney Yacht Rigging

I use ceramic knives. Mousing wirer or welding wire to splice small stuff and both the solid Samson fids and the Selma fids. I'd also suggest buying the good needs from W. Smith and Son. Worth it after you break a dozen of the cheap ones.

Pics of rigging are on the webpage and lots more on the facebook page.

That being said the tool that gets the most use while on a boat, is by far, my leatherman wave.
