    Does anyone know if the Wenoka attaches to BCs well? Like on the right side of your BC? I want to get my friend a new dive knife for Christmas because his doesn't clip in and stay in anymore...and so far everyone like this one haha

    Also... is just the tip sharp and the flat side is dull on the tanto style? That's what it looks like in the picture. Versus like a blunt tip that is actually sharp on the tip? That's confusing sorry!

    Hey RTB,
    I think that the Wenoka mounts well. It comes with several options. I tried the LPI hose mount and also tried it clipped to the webbing on my cummerbund, but now I have it mounted horizontally on the cummerbund, which I find convenient to reach with either hand. I would think your friend should be able to find a mounting option which works for him. As far as sharpness, the plain edge and the top edge of the Tanto tip are sharp, but the back side at the top (the half inch or so before the serrations start) is not sharpened. Hopefully these answers help, but let me know if this wasn't a clear description,
    Colin

    I have three titanium knives - 2 of the old Halcyon ones plus an OMS. You can get the OMS on ebay for <$30. The plastic sheath broke on mine so I got one stitched up from a bit of harness webbing for $5

    I know this is old but...
    The Halcyon H Knife appears to be the exact same knife as the OxyCheq Ti Knife which is sold for half the price?

    Has anyone seen both side by side?

    I think it is the same knife. I've seen other brands that also seem identical to the Halcyon Ti knife. I think they may well be produced centrally and then sold by various brands.

    Whilst the knives are identical, the sheaths aren't.

    I love the sheath that Halcyon make. Some of the other brands that sell the knife don't have great quality sheaths. I don't know how the Oxycheq one compares?

    I avoid plastic 'lockable' sheaths like the plague.

    Other brands that sell the identical knife (with different sheath) are:

    Northern Diver
    KN13 Titanium BCD Knife

    Leisure Pro sell this version: It looks like a copy..the blade may be slightly different?

    And, again, this one is called a 'Titan BC Knife':
