Dive Knives


A dive knife is a general tool and safety device. In the latter case, you use it in the unlikely, but possible, situation that you’re entangled and need to free yourself. A dive knife is a key safety tool to help you if you get caught in fishing line, nets, seaweed, etc. It is not to fend off attacks from underwater creatures. It is not a weapon.

Tang? Pommel? Drop Point? Swage? Spine?

Spouting all the knife terminology in our description makes us sound like we know knives, but we'll introduce you to a real expert. We learned about all the knife terminology, features and benefits from a website maintained by Mr. Jay Fisher, a maker of handmade custom knives. You can visit his extensive and interesting website starting with Knife Anatomy at www.JayFisher.com.

Just to be clear, Mr. Fisher is not in anyway involved with The Scuba Doctor, we just like his site



Dive Knife Care

All stainless steel knives will show some signs of rust due to their high carbon content. (Carbon creates tensile strength.)

Care After the Dive

After each use, rinse well with fresh water and dry outside of sheath.

Storage

Coat blade with a light layer of oil or silicone.

If you have any specific enquiry about how to care for your dive gear, please feel free to contact The Scuba Doctor by email to diveshop@scubadoctor.com.au or by a telephone call to 03 5985 1700.
