I was looking for a replacement knife that I could abuse the heck out of. This knife seems to do the trick. I use the knife for anything from cutting line to scrapping paint. I was able to put a pretty good edge on the knife. The shackel key is useless and it could have been left off. The screwdriver tip has been useful along with the marlin spike.

Comments about Davis Instruments Deluxe Rigging Knife:

I read one should always carry a knife on them, I liked this one and it came handy a couple of times during our sailing adventures. I am sorry to see it starting to rust already...

      I bought this knife to use on my boat. It has a knife blade, serious Marlin spike and a tool for clevis hooks. It is so cool security at the airports confiscate for their own use.

          This is our second one - 1st one ended up at the bottom of the lake! Thinking of buying an extra one "just in case"

          Comments about Davis Instruments Deluxe Rigging Knife:

          I am a full-time live-aboard power boater.
          BUT: In the summer I help out aboard some of the old "antique" (they don't like to be called that) large sailing vessels. The Tall Ships they call them. Most are a minimum of three, if not three plus a spanker in the way of masts. It usually takes a crew of 25 to raise full sail. And it's a beautiful sight!!!

            We trailer our sailboat and put it up and down each time. It makes unlocking tight shackels and tight knots easier. Simple without all those extras that are hard to open or you don't need.

              Comments about Davis Instruments Deluxe Rigging Knife:

              This knife/spike are cheap because of its limited uses due to small size, and lack of serrated edge on the knife for any line you want to cut.
