Re: What sailing knife do you use?
I have two: one is a folding knife from West Marine. It is stainless and has a sheep's foot blade that is half serrated, half straight edge, a marlinspike (which has trouble locking open), and a shackle key. I keep it on a lanyard that I wear around my neck when working at the mast, or in my pocket. I forget the price, but I know it was under $20. My second knife is a folding pointed serrated blade knife that opens easily with one hand and locks. The handle is plastic with a fake bone insert with a really cheesy "scrimshaw" carving of a buck. The handle also has a belt clip attached to it. I generally keep this knife clipped to my pocket (on the inside). This knife will cut through anything. I got it for $5 at a flea market.
