In the early 1980's cave divers were in need of small, Line-Cutting Devices. Since the application was strictly for Cutting Lines, they looked to other sports and adopted the Parachute Line Cutter known as a Z-Knife. The Z-knife was a Protected Blade stored away in a Pouch. Today, the Pouches have evolved, but the knife is still the same one parachutists use to cut away a chute.
Sharper than a Dive Knife, the 440-Stainless Steel Protected Z-Knife is preferred for Cutting through Monofilament and Braid Line. Compact and Easy to Stow, the Z-Knife is available in a Vertical 2" (5.1 cm) Webbing Mount. A Nylon Clip offers an Alternative Attachment Point or the Z-Knife is easily stored in any pocket. A Quick-Release Velcro Tab holds the Knife firmly in place. The Pouch measures (H x W) 4" x 2.5" (10 x 6.3 cm) and the Knife length is 3" (7.6 cm). The Dive Rite Z-Knife is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.
This product has a limited warranty of 12 months.
