Re: What sailing knife do you use?

Iím still refining what I want to have on me vs. nearby, and so far Iíve just been coastal Great Lakes. I carry a Leatherman on my person every day anyway (currently the Rebar, but Iím wanting to swap it for one with an outside-opening blade), so it is muscle memory to reach for it when I need a tool of some sort and I donít want to dig out the boat toolbox (or Iím not in a position to do so!). It goes on my belt everywhere. When Iím out for a sail, I have a Meyerchin (I think it is the Captain model) with a locking spike and blade with a shackle key cut-out. I got it several years ago to carry on the beach cat and for doing rope work. It gets clipped in an accessible place on my person.

I like the idea of the fixed knife and spike combo. I might go that way eventually.

No way I would spend that much on a work knife. I would cry everytime I broke one or lost it overboard.

Yeah, $190 for one blade and a spike. Beautiful knife, but yikes. You'd want to make sure you had something clipped to that lanyard.

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I love my Leatherman Skeletool. I clip into my pocket every day including while sailing. It has: a knife (one handed opening), pliers, screw driver, wire cutter, bottle opener. The screw diver pits are changeable and it holds one spare. I haven't lost one and the weight is good even with lighter shorts on. I have broken the pliers though, so I'm on number two after 5 years of carry.

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

My daily knife thatís always on me is a crkt. Snaps open with one finger. Has double locks so canít close on me although I can close with one hand. Stays sharp and doesnít rust. Pricy but compared to the basic 3 Wally World priced. Have several currently using the mig-13z as I like the half plain blade/ half serrated. Have another sharpened to a high bevel and kept honed that I use on fishing days as I dress my fish immediately if itís not catch and release.
But on the boat itís a leatherman.

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

Most all blades stay sharp and ready for duty...if you sharpen them.
Forget that and doom is the word....

How do you sharpen serrated blades?
