I work as a salvage diver in some pretty nasty conditions.This knife gives me moreconfidence and peace of mind while working. I would recommend this knife to any serious diver that depends on a quality knife.

Rating: Good Knife
Reviewer: Randy H.,  - View all my reviews
This knife is well worth the price. The shealth that comes with it is also very functional and holds the knife SOLIDLY in place, even when rigged upside down - I have mine rigged inverted on my left PFD strap. Makes for an always ready and rapid pull when I might need it on the boat to quickly sever the boat anchor for example, or to fend off a Sea Lion when out on the kayak.

Rating: Very Nice Knife
Reviewer: Timothy Locklear,   
Everyone comments on this knife! Very handy, well-constructed, and functional. If you dont think you need a big knife, try owning this one. Its big, but it packs a punch and its worth it. Great for digging around on the lake bottom.

Rating: Great knife/shears combo
Reviewer: Scott Michael,  - View all my reviews
I have the smaller Fogcutter X and I love it, the problem was that the smaller knife doesnt fit into the XS Scuba neoprene knove wrap really well as its sheath is a bit too short. I bought the larger version for myself and gave the original Fogcutter to my daughter who uses the original straps. I do wish the Recon Fogcutter can in a blunt tip version. Great knife nonetheless.

Rating: Great Knife/Shear
Reviewer: Brian L.,
i like this knife/shear. the handle feels great in my hand. its easy to open the shears with a flip of my pinky, and it does stay locked closed. it fits well on my calf. the sheath is a little thick nevertheless, its sturdy. the sheath holds the knife well in place, but its easy to release. i dont have to worry about accidentally losing it. if you are a smaller person, you may want to go with the smaller non-recon version that has the 4 3/8 blade. overall, iím glad i purchased this knife.

Rating: this knife rocks!!
Reviewer: ADAM MALIK,  - View all my reviews
i bought a fogcutter for my wife and the recon for myself. we couldnt be happier with the purchase. the shears are spring loaded and very sharp, easily cut through wire. only drawback would beb the handle clasp that keeps the handle as one. you mest be carefull not to bump it open when pulling the knife, or it will pop into shears instead. you should definately buy this if you are considering shears and a knife.
