I think if you're looking for a good diving knife, you should consider getting one that is made of Titanium Alloy.

Most of the dive knives marketed for diving or made by dive companies aren't worth their dollar compared to those by proper knife manufacturers.
Besides, titanium knives looks good on paper but that's about it in my experience.

My BRKT Bravo2 has arrived. It is very well made indeed






Looks hefty! I already find the B1 hefty! the b2 must make an expensive chopper! Hows the balance on this knife?

The Bravo2 is looking good
Btw, i think i read it somewhere before that Spyderco treats their salt series' lock and pivot to be rust proof too.
How about capisian salt?

just bought a spyderco ladybug from amazon.

First "real" knife i ever own.

The earlier few were all those chinese knifes from dealextreme or san ren mu.

Hi All

I am not a blade collector. I just wish to buy a knife for diving purpose. I am looking at spyderco blades which have H1 Steel. I checked with the dealer in Singapore, Sports Center and they do not carry the blades I am eyeing on as they are too small.

I checked with Comgateway that they do not ship knife. Same goes to Vpost. Is there anyway I can get this blade to Singapore by shipping?

It's treated, but they don't last.. Even the fixed blades salt and h1 series will rust.. they are resistant/stainless, but not rust proof.. Unless the user is one to always dismantle the blade and do an all round maintenance on the pivots and internals, it's better to just use a fixed blade..

Post dive already there is alot of equipment to wash and clean, I'm the lazy kind and just soak my shears and blade in fresh water and glob a generous amount of petroleum jelly pre and post dive..

EDIT: By the way, rust or not, the knife is still functional.. I carry a stainless mora that has rust but I still use them and they function still.. so as long as u dun mind rust, it's fine.. I'm just referring to the concern on the effects of rust and weakening of the structural pivot which might affect safety in a dive that's all. Always have a backup.

Hahaha its funny when u said those shop u went to has knives that are too small for u, and then u mentioned the dragonfly. I got the dragonfly salt and it's the smallest knife i got in my collection! LOL
It's really easy to sharpen H1 steel and it takes a really really sharp edge. Go for the dragonfly salt!
I think you misunderstood me. I am saying they do not carry small blades. I am looking for blades that is between 2-3 inches. It's just for cutting lines or wires if I got entangled.

Where did you get the dragonfly salt? In SG?

Understand. Looking at folder as they are much smaller. I find the fixed blades kinda too long for my liking. So thinking of keeping it around 4 inch. I guess i'll just have to weigh the pros and cons. I do not mind doing post dive maintenance after the trip and throw the knife into the basin with my camera after every dives. Since I am the type that will strip my torch all up to clean as well. Lucky I only dive around 4 times a yr for now.

Will soaking the knife and rinsing it with running water and dripping some oil at the hinge be sufficient?

Actually if you're just cutting cord, I recommend the eezycut trilobite.. I use that now, one side for cutting and i keep the other side untouched for emergency.. It's also very compact! I also carry a shear as backup.. Soaking it is fine, but be careful of grit and sand.. The fine sea sand can tear up the moving parts very fast when u open the knife.. Just as all the dive gear, cam housing and torch, rinse out all the sand.... Then store the knife well oiled should be fine.

Very over priced for diving leh.. I can imagine it sinking into the abyss if it accidentally drops off.. Prefer to keep dive tools cheap and easily replaceable..

I dont dive, so viix words are probably more credible. But i carry my dragonfly salt when going for a run after midnight. When showering, i'll just rinse the whole knife in water and so far so good. I got my knife from knifeworks, but if u're going to order from there, u gotta order at least 100usd worth of items.
