I prefer a fixed blade in these cases. My most common situation is in a kayak and there is always a potential where you need to cut something very quickly.If you have ever spent time on the salt water or on a large lake or fast water, you appreciate having a knife that opens with one hand, leaving your other hand to hang on with. When you need to cut a line it is often an emergency. And a lanyard loop is nice so you don't lose your knife overboard.
