Both rescue professionals and recreational boaters love the features of the NRS Pilot Knife. Not only does its unique design attract attention, but the sheath provides convenient access and release of the knife when you need it most. It is an excellent knife for freshwater boating and rescue. The cutting edge has both smooth and serrated sections plus a rope cutting hook. The blunt tip design, along with the blade only being sharpened on one side, protects against unintentional puncture of your gear or yourself! The unique sheath firmly locks the knife in place and only lets it go when you squeeze both sides of the release. The sheath clip attaches firmly to a PFD lash tab. The comfortable rubberized grip wraps around the contoured handle, giving you maximum control of the blade. The handle has a built in glass breaking tip on the end and a bottle opener!
