This knife is perfect for kayaking, canoeing, rafting, diving, boating, and just about all other watersports. Blunt tip prevents accidental damage to yourself, your companions, or your gear when in an unstable aquatic environment. Serrated blade is effective at cutting rope, fishing line, aquatic plants, fabric, and probably a bunch of other stuff. The sheath is sturdy, will not rot or mold, and easily attaches in a variety of positions to just about anything you'd need to attach it to. The grip is sure wet or dry with or without gloves, and raised finger stops allow the user to orientate the knife by feel so you don't have to take your eyes off the water.
Blunt tip also works well as a light duty pry bar (I wouldn't put excessive stress on it, but it can withstand some). Highly polished blade surface also works as a mirror in a pinch for signaling rescue craft and evaluating injuries to yourself in places you can't see.
Mine goes with me every time I go boating, kayaking, or fishing. It usually rides on my PFD or waders, depending on what I'm doing, and always in a position where I can get to it quickly if I need it.
I've had it a year, and performed absolutely no maintenance on it, despite heavy use and frequent exposure to both fresh and saltwater. Still looks and works as new.
