- Safe knife for rescue situations
I recently took a water safety class and it reminded me I need to get a knife for emergencies when whitewater kayaking.
I wanted a knife that would attach to my PFD in an unobtrusive manner, would cut ropes or straps which might be causing problems, but that wouldn't cut me or the victim by accident.
This knife fit the bill. It is very safe to use in extreme situations. I've been on the water when someone one was entangled with a strap. If I'd had this knife, it would've been perfect. It was in the middle of the rapids and I wouldn't have pulled out a sharp pointed knife for fear of stabbing the guy by accident. This knife would let you easily (with one hand) cut just the strap, even if its close to the skin.
