Rating: Great dive knife in a nice holster.
Reviewer: Rae K.
This is our third knife, bought it for the tanto blade style. We have the blunt and the sharp tip styles of this same knife as well for over 15 years now and they are as good as new. The only problem is with the holster: the screws oxidized over time and disintegrated, and the tiny screws are #2 and hard to find. A bit of marine epoxy worked like a charm though. The knife is nicely weighted and the handle is very comfortable to hold, used it to cut some fishing lines left on the reef and to cull a couple of lion fish. Metal blunt tip on the handle is a bonus tank banger if needed. Would highly recommend this knife in any of the three blade styles.

Rating: Great Knife. Sheath, Not So Durable
Reviewer: Joshua F.  -  View all my reviews
Im not a diver myself, but a deckhand and I use my knife frequently. That would explain how quickly it dulled on me, only took two days, but I can always get it sharpened again. That being said, it worked wonders on every material I used it on, sheered through cardboard, cut through burlap like it wasnt even there and of course just took a couple swipes to get through a thick line. Not to mention prying appart wood crates and pallets is 1000 times easier with something Im not afraid of snapping off. The tank sounding hammer definately has a use me aswell, good for any small hammer jobs, but doesnt quite have the mass to it for banging on the side of ships to get their attention. The only complaint that I have is how easy it was to break the sheath. Getting off a forklift I clipped it and ripped the entire knife, in sheeth off of my leg. But other than that, an all around great knife.

Rating: Very Good
Reviewer: Graham Kayes
Knife quality is very good and does its job well. The blade is excellent and I think it could stab through shark skin. The holster can be a little uncomfortable after long periods and recommend the option rubber protector that is sold separately. This should have been included as part of the knife set but I guess its another way to make money.

Rating: My second one
Reviewer: Marcin Lajdecki  -  View all my reviews
In my opinion these are one of the best knifes out there. I have a blunt tip that I purchased back in 2004. I am now getting into spearfishing and looking at what was offered I purchased one with a point. These knives have a great edge, hold up great in salt water, and the lucking sheath is one the best that I have ever come across. This knife does not disappoint.

Rating: The Best Knife Ever
Reviewer: Jim Bovill  -  View all my reviews
I love this knife , It came alreday Very Very Sharp right out of the box , as a matter of fact it was so sharp I even shaved with it ... Now That’s Impressive To Me ... I have owned many differant knifes before and I have lost some of them while diving but this Double Locking System is simply the Best Yet , I was so impressed with it I went diving in the Gulf Of Mexico just to test it out .. This Ocean Master Beta Titanium Dive Knife Sharp Point Tip in Yellow is without a doubt worth the extra money ... I love this knife so much that I even went back to scuba.com and bought my daughter one and now Im going to order another on for my self as a back up knife ... I beleive that you get what you pay for , You buy cheap you get cheap ... The Sheath is a little uncomfortable on bear skin so I would Recommend the Scuba Deluxe Neoprene Dive Knife Wrap for $ 14.95 it holds the knifen very well and it will make wearing the knife more Comfortable on your leg ... You Wont Be Sorry ... I will recommend this Knife to All and for $ 84.95 you wont have to worry about losing any more Knifes while diving ... Jim Bovill

Rating: XS Scuba titanium dive knife blue sharp SKU code 024067
Reviewer: Michael Guinan  -  View all my reviews
Absolutely a great knife. The blade is sharp and sturdy. The handle is comfortable and fits in ones hand. The extra security latch is a bonus. There is no concern with loosing the knife. I purchased the knife with the knife wrap. This is the perfect combination for comfort and practicle, as well as, secure attachment. Lastly, it looks cool.

Rating: Great Knife!
Reviewer: Carl G.  -  View all my reviews
This knife I believe is the best out there for the all around purpose of diving. For those of you who are thinking about getting a pointed tip or a blunt tip......go with the blunt. This knife is so sharp that a point seems illegal! Great product!

Questions and Answers for XS Scuba Titanium Knife:

  • Joe:

    is S/S better than titanium

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Joe, Thank you for your inquiry! Concerning the XS Scuba Titanium Dive Knife… Which is better? Stainless steel or titanium? Titanium is one of the most corrosion resistant and is stronger material. Stainless Steel is a corrosion resistant material but not as much as Titanium. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-30/024060/XS-Scuba-Titanium-Dive-Knife.html If you have any questions or wish to place an order, please call us at 1-800-247-2822 or 949-221-9300.

  • Andrew:

    Hi, I have a few questions about this knife so here goes: 1. What material is the tank banger made from? 2. Is it a full tang knife? 3. Can the knife be disassembled for cleaning (I know it wont rust, but if sand etc. gets trapped in it I would like to clean it thoroughly)? Thanks

    Greg  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The cap is made of another metal alloy. I do not understand what you mean by a "full tang" knife. Give us a call about this. You cannot disassemble the knife.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The screw is made from Stainless Steel. It is a full tang knife and can be disassembled for cleaning by unscrewing the cap and sliding the sheath free of the knife.

  • Erik:

    Will this knife fit the provided grommet holes on a scuba pro go bcd? The holes are 10cm/ 4" on center. If not, what small titanium knife will? Thanks, Erik,

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    These are designed to wear on the leg. A BC knife would be better.

  • Ethan:

    Where is the knife made? USA?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    These are made in China.

  • Tammy:

    Im thinking of getting these knives for my sons who are graduating from Pararescue training next month. Will they stand up to that kind of work out?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    They will work perfectly.

  • jake:

    is this knife worth $129? please answer this question personaly and un-biasedly

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This knife is a higher quality material and has the best locking sheath.

  • jack:

    whats the difference betwwen tanto, blunt, and sharp knife styles?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It is the tip of the knife. As pictured in the current image, they are shown as a Blunt, Tanto, and Sharp.

  • Jim:

    I love the knife but the red lock has broken and the knife falls out! Can I get a replacement part or sheath and if so, how much?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Usually the sheath and small replacement parts aren't made available to retailers by themselves. You might try contacting the manufacturer directly and they can often help a person out with these.

  • star:

    I would like to purchase a knife that i can strap to my leg for when i am using my paddle board for what ever may come along IE (fishing line, rope cutting) and of course personal protection. I always carry a knife and will need one to stand up to the elements of water and to be able to stay on while using the paddle board. I will also be using this knife while diving. Suggestions would be a great help. Thanks!

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Any of the titanium full size knives will work great, the XS Scuba is one of the best.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This knife would meet the requirements you request.

  • Michael:

    What knife tip is the best for just recreational scuba diving?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Michael, a blunt tip is the most useful tip. Plus go Titanium it will not rust.

  • Stan:

    Does this knife come with a warranty against defects in material and/or workmanship!

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Stan, yes this comes with a full manufacture warranty. So if there is a defect in the material you would be able to send it back for exchange or refund.

  • Ed:

    If titanium is superior to S/S why are upscale hunting knifes not make of titanium? A lot of people want the best and are willing to pay for it.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Ed, in either fresh or salt water over time the stainless steel blades with rust. Titanium does not do this and the cost of the material is higher that is why you see a higher price for the Titanium knives.
