    I have 3 Spyderco H1 knives.

    I use my Salt topside mostly during a surface interval lunch; I also have the Dragonfly that I take to the beach when I want to carry something small in a wet environment.

    I take three cutting tools when I dive to give myself redundancy (and I like knives!). I dive with the Spyderco fixed blade Enuff Salt H1 Sheepfoot - serrated knife. My knife is mostly to pry things, and sits on my waist belt. This is a great fixed blade and I will never need to buy another dive knife. My Hollis titanium line cutter is fixed to my shoulder strap and titanium shears attached to my waist belt (and on the other side to my knife).

    My advice is not to take a folding knife underwater, and instead make your first cutting tool purchase a Trilobite or another line cutter. The most common thing a diver is likely to cut underwater is some sort of line; therefore, a cutting tool rather than a knife is a better choice.
