Re: What sailing knife do you use?

A friend just gifted me one for the new boat. Came up with a Victorinox Mariner. First 2/3 of the longish blade is serrated and the rest is just as sharp and locks, too ! Can opener, bottle opener (actually a spanner for the SiG or AMT gas adjustement ring, but I digress) Nice marlinspike for being flat and incorporates a shackle key. Of course, the ubiquitous tweezer and toothpick ride in the scales . I use a small dog lead to hook to the end ring and my belt. Drop it in the thigh ocket and it's always handy. Cuts double braid and whatever in a hurry...including flesh..DAMHIK

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I have a knife that's one handed & also has a phid . Always attached to me when sailing . Love the new ads sailnet has in the middle of the page that you cannot close & obscuring posts that I may want to read .

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I carry a Greber 450. Had it for years and can be opened single handedly and locks in the open posistion. Holds an edge really well.
But am thinking of a japanese short sword for; 1. to trim lines, 2. to repel boarders 3. because it would give me the illustion of being a swashbuckler of yore. Or should it be a cutlass??

Okay, okay, I shall stick with my Greber... It clips to my front pocket when not in use.

Sailnet doesn't have adds in the middle of the thread, only on the sides and top.

Time to run a virus scanner??

There's no reason to believe that he has a virus.

Sailnet does put ads in the middle of their pages, including this thread. I don't see them on my computer because I have an ad blocker. I do see them on my phone because my phone does not have an ad blocker. If I diable the adblocker on my computer and refresh the page, I see about 6 adds on the top, sides, and middle of the page.

If you turn your ad blocker off, you will probably see them yourself.

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I have several knives in a box on board but one I like is an old stainless steel Curry Lockspike Bosun. My knife seems to be from the late 50's early 60's and I found it in an old boat I bought.
