Great little knife
I intended to use this as my primary dive knife. This knife is EXTREMLY sharp and works very well. I tested it by holding standard fiber line in one hand letting it dangle loosley and sliced downward at 45 degrees with the knife..... Cut the line in one stroke! It is however a bit small. When using 5mm gloves my hands completely engulf the handle making the grip feel a bit weak.
I decided to make this my spearfishing knife instead. Great for braining fish and even prying oysters from their mounts.
Overall this is a wonderful knife... Just wish it was a little larger (just two centimeters from perfection)
