This knife has found a home in my boat! All fishermen who anchor on a flowing river need such a knife as this to keep by your anchor line to cut it in case of an emergency to make a quick escape. One needs a VERY sharp knife to do this and this fits the bill perfectly. Plus, I use it to scale surf perch and other general uses that one needs on a boat. When we go camping, this knife goes along as well. Comes with a durable knife sheath so that you can pack it without worries of anything around it getting cut. In addition, this knife works great for cutting the heads of baitfish in a miter box to get that just right angle for the correct spin in the water. Shhhh, that's my little secret for this knife - never any wasted bait from bad cuts! While on the boat, I keep it up by the bow near the anchor rope as it cuts through it quickly. Other times, it fits in the glove box. Easy to clean and store.
