I carry three pieces of cutlery when I dive.
Doesn't matter, cold or warm water.
I carry a Columbia River Stiff Kiss which
is strapped to my B.C. near my inflator hose.
I carry a copy of Jimmy Lile's Rambo I. Don't
laugh. Most people do, however if you drift
dive and need to stay on the bottom while waiting for the rest of the people on the
boat and the current is really ripping you'll
need a blade that big to stay stationary.
I was in Cozumel last September and the current was really ripping. We did Santa Rosa
and Tormentos in the same dive! There was a
couple on their honeymoon who had trouble getting down (scared of current). The rest
sunk their knives in the sand and waited.
One by one they were all blown away! I was the only left on the bottom, thanks to my
knife! Great dive, got to do the Wall alone.
My other piece of cutlery is a pair of EMT
shears which is the only thing that will cut
steel fishing leader. The Emt shears are indispensible. You can cut your way out of a mess in no time with no exertion. They can be had real cheap.BUD K WORLDWIDE sells 'em by the dozen for like $14.00.
Bigger is really better (when your drift diving).
