Summary

This is a great sturdy knife! It's always sharp and right there. It also has a neat little spring function that pops it right into your hand, I love it! I use it as my scuba knife and it attaches to my b.c. so easy. Plus the orange is a wonderful color in case you drop it. I love the weight, durability, and feel of the knife.

I used this a while ago lobstering. I dug under rocks, cut myself out of kelp, line, and even rope (long story). I would trust this knife with my life!

The only complaint I have with it is the sheath. It only has one attachment point and if you are not careful you can spring the knife loose, though it is rather sturdy!

NRS designed its Pilot Knife specifically for freshwater boaters and rescue professionals due to its extreme convenience in the water world. The stainless steel blade features a blunt tip so you don't accidentally puncture yourself, and the edge has smooth and serrated sections to help you cut through a variety of objects. NRS added a rust-resistant coating to the blade to keep it shiny and sharp for a long time. The glass-reinforced polypropylene handle utilizes a TPR over-mold to give you a good grip, and it features a rope-cutting hook, a glass-breaking point a the end, a bottle opener, and a square hole that doubles as a valve wrench for oxygen tanks. NRS made the sheath out of glass-reinforced nylon to keep it strong, and two release mechanisms prevent the blade from falling out while you paddle. The sheath attaches to PFD lash tabs so you can always access it.
