    I think you'll find a small, sharp knife worn in a more accessible location will do the job better. No need for rambo knives, just a small, simple and cheap knife works great. I prefer titanium blades so I don't have to take care of them, but that rules out the "cheap" part of the equation!

    There are a few threads on knife options in this Accessories forum, so look through the first couple pages of posts and you may find your questions are already answered...

    Also think about a blunt tip. I wish I had got one.

    how would a blunt tip be superior to a pointy or sharp tip?

    well for one thing you wont stab your gear with a blunt as bad as a sharp and its good for digging around and prying.

    In sum: Less likely to poke holes in important things, like you and your BCD. More useful for prying, which is a very common use for dive knives. The only way it is less useful is for killing things (a pretty rare use for a dive knife) and undoing knots.

    I'm always paranoid about stabbing myself, or accidently slicing a hose (Expecially if I'm having a "Sea Hunt" flashback!)

    I'm going to get one of those cute zip knives that can cut line or through a BC strap if necessary, but it would take a big screw up to cut yourself!

    I have the scissors and they will actually cut a penny in half! they will cut anything you might get caught up in and on the plus side.....they wont cut you and don't take up much room! hope this helps!
