fantastic knife

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 t...

Super sharp knife, cuts through anything, debree, fish, absolutely anything. The leg case it comes in is awesome.

 

heavy duty knife.

By Hal

I haven't dived with this knife yet but it seems well made and very sharp.

 

Felt no Fear

By Marco P.

Used this on dives in Mexico last summer.

 

Love it

By NavMike

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!

 

Sweet Knife

By Lord H.

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.

 

great knife, great price.

By mattkinz

This is a great knife. I have had other knives, They were all pretty dull. This one can be honed to razor sharp and holds edge well. I have surprised others by having a dive knife sharp enough to really clean a fish. Line cutter and serrated edge both work well, too. Because of stainless steel metal composition, it needs full freshwater rinse after diving to keep rust off. 318 stainless prevents rust better but has a poor edge and hardness. This 420 stainless steel is much better for sharpness. It comes apart so all parts can be cleaned and reassembled easily. Great scabbard doesn't release knife until released by your hand. I have never had knife loosen or fall out. Great straps have snaps that adjusted once, never need re-adjusting to your legs. The snap fittings are rugged and make the knife easy on/ easy off your leg which is best location. (preferred inside of calf so fewer snagging problems). This knife is so good, I still use mine and just bought 2 more as gifts to other divers. You won't be disappointed. The only way to do better is get the $$$ titanium version.

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.

 

great knife, good price

By wildman

disassembles for cleaning a plus after dirty diving. Holds an edge.

 

you will be happy with this knife

By davidp

hard to design and make a perfect dive knife, but this knife should please almost any diver. it is made from the right steel, has the right type of serrations, and the right length to be useful. if you want a pointed blade, i think this is an excellent choice.

 

great knife

By Seahunt

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

By jomomma

Great all around dive knife. I normally dive with 5mm gloves on and it takes a few secconds to don. It holds a razor sharp edege and disassembles easy for cleaning. It would have been better with a metal assembly threads instead of plastic one but after 60+ dives it hasnt broken yet... After every dive i take it apart rinse it and spray it with wd-40 and I never had a problem with rusting. Id give it a 9.0 out of 10 due to the plastic assembly/disassembly threads other than that great its great fot the money.

 

Dive Knife

By Tom

Was very confortable to wear while in the water. easy to reach and use when attached to leg.

 

Dive Knife

By TM

First kinfe I have purchased that was made for diving. Grip was good, went into and out of holder with out trouble.

 

This knife works!

By DON

This knife is all one piece and works as well as any knife. The release is good but a little hard with thick gloves on. If you plan on diving a lot in cold water where thick gloves are essential, I would recommend a push button from the front.

I am looking for a knife and sheath the can be strapped to my lower leg. Is this a good knife/sheath for this application?
Bryan P on Aug 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm a public safety diver and I often dive in black water (zero visibility). I carry several cutting implements and I carry this knife strapped to the inside of my lower right leg.
It has a smooth edge, serrated edge, and a line cutter, which are all very sharp from the factory, and it holds its edge very well. It has a full length tang and is easy to take apart for cleaning and drying.
The sheath is very secure and it's easy to remove the knife.
It's a good knife that I highly recommend.
I would just like to add my input to this list of Q's and A's. I've worn mine for about 10 years of diving and it has held up great. Where/ how you wear it is just a matter of prefrence. I am right handed and so I wear it on the outside of my right calf but my dive buddy wears his on the inside of his leg. Now does anyone know if I can buy just a new sheath and straps? Like I said, it's 10 years old and has been on hundreds of dives
AARON H on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks much
How and where does this knife attach? On the BC? On the leg with straps?. I'm looking for a knife in this price range that attaches to the BC. I don't seem to see in the description, how it attaches. Maybe I just can't see it.

Thanks,Deb
