In any sea voyage, it is imperative for sailors to have the right knife. There are many types, from which you will need to choose the most suitable
Where to begin
First of all, you need to decide whether the knife blade should be fixed or folding.
The folding blade provides convenience and the ability to quickly fold it back. However, in this case, when using it, you lose a little in strength and stability.
Fixed blades are generally stronger. Plus, they're easier to clean. But they are bulkier and require a case for safe storage and portability.
Wichard offers a marine rescue knife that can meet the highest expectations, providing the strength and simplicity of a fixed blade in a small, handy package.
It features a fully serrated blade for easy linear cutting with a bright yellow glow-in-the-dark handle for visibility in all conditions (also available in black).
The blade itself is made of stainless steel and the handle is made of polyurethane-corrosion-resistant material.
Just over 7 inches in size, the knife is comfortable to handle and easy to carry. This is important, because if in an emergency he is not within reach, you can do without him altogether.
Now you are not afraid of knots
If you spend a lot of time on the water, you will inevitably come across a knot that cannot be disassembled without the help of a pile (marlinspike).
There are many combinations of "knives-slugs" on the market. However, Sal Glesser from Sypderco and his son Eric have taken this concept to a whole new level by integrating a patented ceramic ball bearing locking mechanism into their Tusk model to ensure that the pile (tenon) never accidentally closes in your hand. ...
The cleat itself also has square edges, which Spyderco says improves knot fit. The knife is made using a combination of titanium and LC200N steel, making it one of the most durable blades.
After a series of tragic cases of the death of sailors in harnesses, it was decided to include knives in the kit of every young sailor.
This, in turn, led the parents to look for a blade that worked best. In fact, young sailors have very specific needs, as the sailing they practice tends to be different from their parents' sailing.
They are often on the water, and their knives are likely to get wet a lot. In addition, marine grade knives tend to be expensive, and children are known for their ability not to care for their belongings.
We recommend purchasing the Gill's Marine Tool, a compact and affordable knife specially configured for young sailors on a dinghy.
Made of titanium coated 420 marine grade stainless steel, the knife has a serrated blade for quick cutting of the rope, an inline wrench, a strapping cutter, an 8mm wrench, a flat head screwdriver and a marlinspike.
The red grip is specially designed for easy grip in both wet and dry conditions. It also comes with a nylon pouch for easy portability and quick access.
