    To be honest, I haven't taken it diving yet. But at receiving the knife, the double locking sheath seems fail proof and and that was one of the things that I was most interested in. The way the secondary lock slides over and how the main lock pushes away seem very well designed. I don't think that a person would ever loose it with the main lock but definitely not with the secondary lock. The knife was also very sharp right out of the box.

    I personally would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in diving while maintaining saftey. I bought as a birthday present for my dad but since he just got back surgery i have been using it and it works great. He was excited and amazed at the quality of the knife. It has a nice thick and strong blade and comes in handy when prying things but you should be careful becuase it could snap the tip off. Titanium as maleable and you should require proper care. I clean both of my knives after each dive and oil them accordingly. It is very safe and easy to get out but wouldn't recommend it in tight situations. I carry a knife that is much easier to extract. There is so much i can say about this beauty but i'll just leave it up to you for the final decesion. Oh and by the way the rubber straps that it brings work just fine for me! Good Luck! =D

          owned one before but both plastic locks eventually broke after 11 years and about 600 dives later which led to losing the knife underwater. still love the product though

            Great knife, very sharp, never will rust, but they used 5 horrible screws in the sheath that started to rust on day one even after rinsing it well. I replaced them at ace hardware with stainless screws for 12 cents each. Much better screws. Too bad they did not spend the few cents to make it right in the first place. Again Knife itself is great!

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  What is the benefit of a tanto tip?
            MATTHEW R  A Tanto Tip blade has a heavy and sharp tip. Sharp enough for puncturing and thick enough for prying.....They are a great choice, unless you will be around inflatable boats. If you are going to be around inflatable boats you should carry a blunt tip knife. Matt Reyman Firefighter/Paramedic SCUBA Open Water Advanced Water Rescue Specialist
            Leah J  Is this knife easy to release quickly from its sheath in emergency underwater situations?
            TOMMY T  this knife has a locking system which when "on" locks the knife in place. with the lock "off" you can very easily remove the knife. there is enough static pressure when the lock is "off" to hold the knife into the sheath.
            Shopper  What size stainless steel screws do I need to replace the metal screws that will rust in saltwater? To small for Ace Hardware or simular. Maybe a hobby store? Would like to replace those screws before the knife hits the water.
            PAUL H  Not sure what the size is, but I am pretty sure that copper state nut and bolt would carry them. Try copperstate dot com and see if they can help.
