The manufacturer states "the design has a blunt tip and serrated edge, making it perfect for seat belt removal during emergency rescues and extrication from lines or nets in the water. A locking Zytel sheath has slots for carry on belts or webbing, plus a removable stainless steel clip."
It looks like it would fit nicely on a BC, be highly visible, and function as a handy small secondary knife for cutting ropes and lines.
So, is anyone using it? What's your experience been?

I havent used it, but it looks like it would make a relatively functional dive knife. maybe not the greatest for prying or anything, but cutting fishing line and whatnot while NOT cutting your self seems to be what its made for. If you get it, lemme know what you think!
