    I am looking for a Titanium knife for under $100, what is the best knife on the market for the value?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I got a Wenoka Squeeze Lock Titanium a couple of month ago that I'm happy with so far. It hasn't gotten any heavy use so far, but the build quality seems good, and the price was good for a titanium knife.

    It depends on what you want. Most of the titanium knives out there are great. We always recommend something on the smaller side. Dive knives are tools, not weapons. We have 4 different models, all under $100 on our site:

    I, too, have the Wenoka. Really nice knife. Really secure in the holder.

    My only complaint is that the screw that holds the sheath belt loop stripped in place. However, it in no way has affected the sheaths ability to remain attached to my BP/W.

    I would buy a second one without hesitation.

    I like my Halcyon Ti knife, which runs around $75. Cuts through anything and everything. You can read my "mini review" here...

    I have only had cause to use my new XS Scuba Beta Titanium a few times thus far. It was a birthday present, but a good one :D I have no complaints thus far. It is a little over $100, but not much.

    +1 for the Halcyon Ti knife.

    I have two of these - one on each of my single and double tank rigs.

    The knife does everything I need, doesn't blunt or rust, takes up little space (on harness waistband) and is amazingly sharp.

    I've used in on numerous occasions - cleaning nets and line of reefs and wrecks. The best example I can give was when I had to deal with an incident involving a fishing boat that was dragging anchor across reef and endangering my divers. Two quick swipes of the knife severed the 2" plastic anchor rope. Very impressive!

    There's just no need to spend more money on any other brand of knife....

    Count one more for the Wenoka. I bought one of the tanto tips and have been happy with it. Serrated on one side, smooth on the other and with a small notch for cutting thin lines. The sheath firmly attaches to standard BC mounting holes, to webbing and has other mounting options, one I believe is for mounting to your BC inflator hose.

    I bought another one of these last week which has paid for itself already. I am currently in Cuba and just got my BOW, my wife is in Virginia, currently waiting to do her check out dives. The dive shop here had a big Thanksgiving weekend sale during which I bought us both Mk25/A700 reg sets, got myself a tank, paid for my AOW, and got various other bits and pieces including another Wenoka knife like the one I have. I told my wife I spent $2000+ on dive gear :shocked2: , then I told her I got her a knife. Her response? "Sweet!" :D
