Kelly; this is may not the knife for a two year boyfriend but once you find out what kind of diamond he is talking about this knife is the knife equilivent of a D - Flawless diamond.
Mr. Boye only makes a few a year so once things get serious get your order in well in advance.

This is what the deckhands fishing Bering Sea use. We buy them by the case. They also make a great $5 sheath. I have a few of these in a sheath strapped to different areas on my sailboat. You can strap one to your bibs or life vest real easy. They are rugged, will cut like butter, and light and cheap.
The serration is much less that a spyderco. Try to cut a small piece of line with serrations that are bigger then the rope.....no good.

Cutting Dynex Dux we were wearing out steel knives. These are the only thing we found to hold up to synthetic lines. Below is a great guy, single man shop.

$29.95 Ceramic Knife

Also another specialist. Killer good blade and material. Anotrher solo maker.

My guy mentioned that he would like a knife to use on his boat....for emergency purposes...like having to cut through rope.
Like most sailors, I too carry many knives and I have a small collection.
But in response to the above, and for my emergency knife, I have this with the blunt tip attached to the pedestal.....

Would you expound on these work knives.
I did not find "Vickie" Your link goes to a different brand.
What is the difference?

It's one of those $3.95 knives on the top row. Their real name is Victorinox, or Vickie for short. Same ones that jmolan linked to at LFS.

Wow...I never thought buying a knife could be so confusing.
I'm not finding many (or any) sites that include reviews, as I had hoped.
Nor am I finding any sites that tell me where I can purchase a particular knife in Canada...as I've decided I'd rather do without the hassle of online ordering and returns if necessary.
Therefore, from what I've checked out so far....I've narrowed my search down to:

A-the Spyderco Salt 1 C88YL
it has a serrated blade and a slightly rounded tip.

B- the Spyderco Atlantic Salt C89YL
has a serrated blade and a sheepfoot tip

C-the Tasman Salt C106YL
but it has quite a pointy tip.

I'm leaning towards "B"
And I'd put the links up...but the site won't let me.
It just copies and pastes:
:: Spyderco Search Results ::
for all three of them.

Anyways, thanks for all your suggestions and if you have any comments on the above 3 knives, I'd be happy to hear them and take them into consideration before I purchase a knife.

My next question will be in regards to Life Jackets and PFD's...but that can wait till another time, as I should be in bed by now!!!

Thanks again for your advice!

I'm a bit of a knife person - I used to sell (and train with) such manufacturers as CRKT, Benchmade, Spyderco, S&W, Böker, etc. and currently favor those made by CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool). Regardless of basic knife type, I would always recommend a partially serrated blade and above all - keep the knife sharp. There are many knife sharpening systems out there and I like to use the Lansky sharpener but as long as you get a quality system and apply it correctly they will all work well. My daily use boat knife is a large CRKT folder (see http://www.sv-zanshin.com/images/Big...apCutAway1.jpg after I had used it while diving under the boat to cut a melted fishing line); I abuse this knife and also keep the edge at a 17° angle (too fine an edge for a daily-use knife) but after every use I'll resharpen and oil it, wearing the edge down far too much due to the sharp angle but I can live with that.
When this boat knife finally goes overboard I think I will get a more sailing-specific knife but will most certainly stick with a half-serrated blade.
