I have a Diverite transplate set up what do you think about be the best knive. I just want something small. Any ideas I would like to hear them all.

THanks :smiley20:

They best knives for hardness will be the ones made from 416 or 17-4 as long as they are heat treated. Watch out for 416 though since it can corrode.

Have you thought about using Shears? The cost less than $3 and they cut through webbing like hot knife through butter.

Just an idea for you.

I think any simple short (3" or so) blunt tip knife would be great for a harness. I like the ones with the line cutter on one side and serration on the the other.

Hydralloy Fusiler Blunt-tip (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=Fusiler) Larry likes this knife. Corrosion resistant and maintains the edge (420 steel).

Or, I can sell you my knife (3-inch blunt tip 320 steel), so I can buy this one.

I also carry shears.

I like Halcyon's titanium knife, on my waist belt.

I have this knife, very practical for the price.

Akona/ScubaMax makes one that folds and is stored in a handy dandy pouch. It is Titantium, slips easily onto the waistband of the harness and sells (at ScubaToys) for around $35 bucks. I would give you the link but I am computer challenged.

I like that knife. I have been looking for a good knife to pair up with my transplate. Does that knife have a slot in the back to slide over webbing?

I have that Fusiler knife, too.. I mounted it to the right shoulder strap of my Zeagle Brigade... works nice there.

Just buy a cheapy knife like this one and make a simple sheath for it:

I have lost more knives than anyone piece of gear. I am on number four.

I have a UK Remora (the non-expensive version) on the hose-holder that's mounted on my LP inflator hose. I can get to it with either hand, and the big-daddy knife is on the leg :D

What are your thoughts on the OMS line and cable cutter?

I'm sure it works well, but it's HUGE, and the blades will rust quickly, based on experiences I have had with similar models.

For the money, I would buy the OMS Titanium line cutter (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?product_id=OMSTitaniumLineCutter+) instead. (And in fact, I have one on my harness.) Should work as well as the other one, but it's much more compact and since it's made from a solid chunk of titanium, it will NEVER rust.

Second the Remora. Cheap enough that it's no big deal if you lose it. When it's on 2" webbing, it will not move or shift, and the hard sheath lets you snap it in securely with one hand.

Big, aggressive serrations should chew right through even thick rope.
