I just bought 2 for gifts for other people this christmas. I have used this great knife for years and have been impressed in that it is the first really sharp dive knife I have ever seen. New, it can shave hair off of your arm. This sharpness can be maintained and it holds a great edge. This is because of the 420 stainless steel that is used. The 420SS may be more prone to rust than the 318 stainless but 318 cannot ever be sharp and cannot be sharpened well at all.

A dive knife is a tool and a blunt knife that won't cut is almost useless. This knife takes a little time to disassemble and rinse well but it is a minor inconvenience for an excellent knife.

The new Titanium knives may overall be better but are also a lot more costly. For the price, I cannot imagine a better dive knife than this Hydralloy 420SS model.

Also, the scabbard is well designed and I have never had the knife slip out of place. It releases well and easily when, and only when needed. Also, the leg straps are great and need be set up only once. The snaps on the straps are secure and easy to connect and disconnect from your leg.

The craftsmanship of the knife is excellent. My only complaint with the knife itself is that it showed signs of rusting when taken apart for cleaning after a week of salt water diving. I recommend taking it apart and cleaning it as the instructions describe because the internal parts of the blade will quickly suffer from rust.

The sheath is an entirely different matter. It is plastic, not rubber so its stiff. That seemed good, but it is very poorly built. Mine fell apart during the second dive. The sheath literally separated at the seam because the poorly designed snaps sheared off. This was not a rigorous dive. It was strapped to my inner leg. From its recovery location it must have broken off during a back roll entry. Of course when the sheath separates the knife goes with the part that falls off. We had to do a recovery dive to find it. I zip tied the sheath back together thinking that would make it secure, but the clasp that actually holds the knife in the sheath is very loose and easily lets go of the knife even with a little water resistance.

This is a lot of money to pay for a knife you can't keep attached to you. I got a cheap sheath with a knife handle keeper and ditched the UK sheath. If you really want the knife I recommend getting a replacement sheath before using the knife underwater.

    Comments about Underwater Kinetics Blue-Tang HYDRALLOY Steel Knife, Blunt Point:

    Bought this one and the titanium one as well but wanted to get this one so i would have a good knife when I get there but in case it disappears in route to or from the Dominican it won't hurt as much as losing my titanium one. The quality is not lacking. It is a solid knife that should hold up for years to come with proper maintenance. It comes decently sharp but recommend running it a few times cross a sharpener if you like it with that extra razor edge.

      Hard to beat this knife for the price. It came razor sharp, nice compact sheath design, easy takedown for cleaning/maintenance, and comfortable handle. The usual Underwater Kinetic quality.

        This was my first knife and I don't plan to replace it. The grip seems really odd but is very comfortable in use. The blade holds up great and the metal end is great for getting other's attention. My brother has the Tusa Imprex knife which is great in its own right but I love my Blue Tang!

        Comments about Underwater Kinetics Blue-Tang HYDRALLOY Steel Knife, Blunt Point:

        This is my second Blue-Tang Hydralloy knife. Unfortunately, I lost my first one that I'd been using for 3+ years. This is a great knife. The blade doesn't rust. Sometimes you'll see a small rust stain on the blade, but that's from an internal component of the sheath, I believe.
        It holds an edge well. My first one freed me of a few monofilament entanglements, and quickly dispatched many fish that I'd speared.

          Great Knife. The factory sharpening leaves a little to be desired but then i usually hone my blades until they cut you by looking at em funny...Just take a little time with the wet stone and you're good. Holds its edge well and is very easy to disasemble and clean after a dive. Well balanced and easy to use.
