It's good to remember your dad's advice, so he clearly worded it correctly, so you'd remember.

The current version of this knife has a marlinspike/shackle key addition that my version lacks. The shackle key would be handy.

Holds an edge pretty well, and after some use I can open and close it one handed. I have the pointed version, similar to below, less the marlinspike/shackle key of course.

We also gives thumbs up to the Boye knife. We have two the pointed version and the safety version.
