I'm tired of that d*mned DR Econo Kife advert. I bought two and I'm buying no more. The advert has been there for months.

Time to change the advert. What other goodies can I piss away my hard-earned cash on?

Really funny that some companies will charge you $24.95 to have a silly blue H on the same knife...

Not to mention the misspelling errors... "A multi-purpose Dive Rite Knife for less then an air file! used by DIR enthusiasts"

Shouldn't that be "THAN an air FILL"???

You've never seen air file before? It's like gumbo file, but with more o2.

Coincidentally, it's going to be in my next order. :smiley2:

Shouldn't that be 13 misspelling errors? And 2 spelling errors.

Yeah, the "special" is beyond stale. I used to check the home page regularly for new specials but not lately.

Since I have only been at the forum for about a month, the knife is all that I know. What else has been there as a special?

It has only been there since mid-June. So a month and a half...give or take. Before that was the Dive Rite shears which have been discontinued. Make a suggestion as to which should be "featured" now...they may listen. ;)

Speaking of this, what is everyone mounting it with? Just some velcro?

I believe it's designed to slip on a 2" webbing waist belt

I believe it's designed to slip on a 2" webbing waist beltThe top part is a loop.

Be advised, though, there is a bit of false advertising going on. My knife (I have two) sheath does NOT...I repeat...does NOT have the Dive Rite logo. Sure, the plastic bag it comes in does, but not the knife sheath. I mean, when I go diving, I want the other divers to be insanely jealous that I'm carrying a DiveRite knife, that they don't have. Kinda like my LaCoste wetsuit, Gucci booties, Oakley mask, Rolex dive watch.

Not that I'm status/label conscious or anything.

I'll bet right now Larry has Joe scribbling "Dive Rite" on them with a red perma marker. (He'll probably screw it up and put "Die Rite")

i noticed that right off when I pulled mine out of the package :)

i do not think it will affect its use

Wow that was a big jump in specials! from a $4 knife to a $1,000 dive trip! Can we have the knife back? At least with the knife, I did not feel poor! :smiley36:

The trip leaves in 3 days, I'm just guessing that Larry will have to take it down once the ship has left port.

What about this:

Caribbean Explorer liveaboard September 27 thru October 4th

So come join Big Joe himself on this 115 foot luxury liveaboard and have a great time diving and getting to know Joe on a personal level.
... saaaaay! :naughty:

Wellll, I don't know about this. Just make sure he gets his morning coffee or he's a grumpy habitat Joe.


As far as knives go, if you don't like the Dive Rite one, I definitely recommend the Oxycheq Line Cutter. It doesn't look like much, but MAN is it sharp.

Wow, I put some batteries in that thing just because I was curious when I saw... It's the most annoying sound I've ever heard in my life. You can definitely draw some attention with that. It's basically an underwater siren.

So what you're is saying is that we complained about the special and Larry is gonna punish us with an underwater siren?

:this is a joke:
