View Full Version : Knife and shears

03-10-2008, 16:05
OK, this weekend I bought a pair of shears from ST. So now I have a small knife and a pair of shears. I made the purchase because I am considering diving in a low viz area that may have entanglements...

So here's my question: How many of you have ever used a knife or shears because you were entangled?

I did. Once.

Not yet.

I have I had fishing line around my foot and had to cut it but ended up taking off my fin and slipping the line off of my foot like a sock.

Not yet, thankfully. Kelp snaps, and I've so far been lucky to avoid any fishing line.

I just recently used my shears for the first time. I cut a fish off of a longline hook that was laid in a fish sanctuary. We also cut up and removed about 200 feet of the longline; as much as was present within the depth limits of that specific dive.

Good use of my cutting tool!:smiley20:
