There are plenty of those that don't say boat on them.

I kid about the bottle opener above, but they also make the same knife with a couple of screwdriver blades. If not for the pliers on the leatherman multi-tool, this knife really has all the stuff I use most. I have an older version of the one I posted above (all stainless), but I'm thinking of ordering one of these:

Leatherman knives: c33T/c33Tx

I like it. And I just happened to lose a knife last week. I am guessing it doesn't come with a $20 price tag.

Found it on Amazon for $28. How can you beat that. $38 if you want the E series, which has more SS on the handle. Plastic doesn't rust, so I'm not sure why one needs more SS.

Leatherman makes a quality product. I may have to look into getting one. I have a gerber multi tool that I really like but its too clunky to really carry around anywhere. Basically it just stays in my backpack with all the other stuff that gets carted to and from the boat.

Gerber Blades 22-01471 Multiplier Suspension Multi Pliers Box

Feck it, they are giving them away, well almost, on this site.
I see they do have a bottel opener, must recheck mine again
No plastic handle tho.
Safe sailing
Forgot to mention I generaly carry mine in my sailing trousers but agree it is bulkier than a knife, tho often used for the other tools.

It is hard to beat the price of a Smith & Wesson knife. The down side is that they will not stay sharp. You can buy them at almost any big box store or Ace hardware to avoid s&h.

Leatherman Crater c33Tx Combo Straight/Serrated Blade Knife

I just got one for $3.57.

OK - a bit of twisted logic, I admit, but us boat junkies have to do some rationalization every once in a while.

See -
  1. I turn 65 next month
  2. Mother-in-law always sends a birthday cheque for $25.00
  3. There was free shipping
  4. The price was $28.57
  5. Take off the $25.00 birthday present cheque

Volia - a Leatherman Crater c33Tx knife for $3.57

Oh, by the way - I hire out for any of you needing help rationalizing purchases to your significant others.

Excuses-R-us

$1 Walmart knife

It has a hole for a lanyard. The blade has a little knob that allows one-handed opening. The spring is attached with a screw, so it can be adjusted or replaced. The serated blade is, well, just that. I wear 2 knives when I'm sailing. My other is a West Marine job that has a marlinspike and a blade. That spike came in handy during a storm last summer! I'm never without it.
