I've reviewed this before, now I've had it another year. After using a dremel to cut off the "safety" part on the end of the blade, this knife becomes the best bait knife you'll ever own, IMHO. Stays sharp, doesn't rust and folds to go in your pocket. Also, VERY affordable when bought on sale ([$]). If you ever need to sharpen it, just file the back side of the blade (the side without serrations) a little and it is sharp as new. 5 stars, for sure!!!

            Comments about West Marine Stainless-Steel Serrated Rigging Knife:

            I carry this knife with me 24/7, I have used it to extract two different individuals from overturned car wrecks.
            If kept sharp with a few strokes on a round ceramic sharpener, it will cut nylon line, seat belts, cardboard,
            your lunch, etc.

            I keep it on my belt in a nylon belt pouch. I never leave home with out it.

              This is a great knife to have "ON YOU" or "ATTACHED TO YOU" when boating. No one plans to be overboard or in an emergency situation when going boating but IT DOES HAPPEN!!!! Make sure you have one of these with you, it may just save your life someday.

              I bought one of these some time back. I like the knife, but the clip came off after several months. Took it back to West and they gave me a new knife, no questions asked. Same thing has happened again.

                As a sailing instructor, competitive racer, and more I am constantly carry a sailing knife. And for the most part it has been on of these knifes. I have had them for years and still look great, they have outlasted knifes that cost well over a hundred dollars. Good size, easy to open, built well, cuts well, and most importantly cheap!! You wont be sorry

                  One of the best values I've found in memory, ie.quality/price, especially when on sale. Carry one daily aboard tugs on SF Bay. Incredible edge. Will cut through 3" diameter line. Only knock, the thumb hole for opening too small. Added electrical tape through hole to give better purchase. A zip tie pulled tight and cut off would serve as well.
