  • Comfortable rubberized grip wraps around the contoured handle, gives you maximum blade control
  • Sheath clip attaches firmly to a PFD lash tab
  • The handle has a built in glass breaking tip on the end
  • Included is a bottle opener in the handle of the knife

    Great kayak knife, brilliant sheath release feature

    Great little knife, perfect for attaching to your PFD patch. Could be sharper out of the box

    Functionality, Durability & Adhesive Quality

    Used this on several white water & kayak adventures. Supported release of hung up trout by local fisherman (who cut the line & trail), adhered to the jacket during unexpected rescue situation in tight space and took a beating when used to release shoes from a rock and rushing water. Worth every penny for those trips.

    Great Knife

    This is the knife that stays on my Professional Rescue PFD. It has a BIG profile, which may not be awesome on a small kayaking PFD, but I LOVE it for my application. I'm usually wearing gloves in cold water, so having a knife big enough to grab and feel is nice. Add in the fact that it mounts very securely on a lash tab and the sheath makes getting to the knife very easy, and it's perfect. Cool extra features like a glass punch, rope cutting notch, and grippy handle make it great for professional rescuers. I also love that the whole thing is one piece of steel. No durability issues there!

    A well thought our knife and sheath.

    As a first a swift water first responder I am required to have a 3blade, which is challenging to safely do in a fixed blade knife. The sheath keeps this tucked away and secure on my PFD. The window punch is a nice add on feature, eliminating an extra tool in my already extensive kit. A well thought our knife and sheath.
