 Product Description and Specs

The NRS Pilot Knife has features that both rescue professionals and recreational boaters will really love. Not only does its unique design attract attention, the sheath provides convenient access and release of the knife when you need it most.

• The cutting edge has both smooth and serrated sections plus a rope cutting hook
• The blunt tip design protects against unintentional punctures, also doubles as a flat-head screw driver
• The unique sheath firmly locks the knife in place and only lets it go when you squeeze both sides of the release
• The contoured handle and rubberized grip gives you maximum control of the blade
• The sheath clip attaches firmly to a PFD lash tab

Excellent product - could use a larger belt clip, but is sharp, secure, light weight and safe.

I'm not sure how I feel about this knife. It certainly looks nice, but it's made in China out of some unspecified material. I'm worried about corrosion in a marine environment. The sheath that comes with the NRS Pilot is probably more important than the knife itself. It is meant to provide two distinct benefits: 1) an absolutely secure attachment point out in the open, and 2) instant availability of the knife. It's a great idea, but it's not executed with as much precision as is required. The sheath fails to secure the knife with 100% perfection, leaving me with the strong desire to tether the knife, which seems like a bad idea for an emergency knife. The sheath has two small, plastic, opposite-facing projections that push through a rectangular opening in the knife. These projections are "spring loaded" by way of stressing plastic tabs inside the mechanism. (I opened it up to take a look) These aren't as strong as they should be. I wish this part of the sheath was made of precision metal. Pushing the knife onto the sheath almost always produces tiny black plastic flakes, which means the plastic is wearing away with each reattachment. I may be unfairly targeting the sheath when the attachment point on the knife may actually be at fault. The rectangular opening on the knife is the weakest part of the whole package. On mine, at least, it is quite rough on the inside with an almost unfinished look. Also, the long sides of the rectangle are tapered. This tapering alone appears to be the cause of the slightly insecure attachment. If you wiggle the knife enough, or accidentally bump one of the disengagement buttons, one of the plastic projections can end up resting on the taper. At this point, if you tug the knife it has a fair chance of popping off the sheath.

Knife works great! The case is awesome and easily mounted to my PFD holding it handle down for easy to grab when needed. Quality product!

Knife itself seems very functional as advertised. Case leaves a lot to be desired. Advertisement was silent and case lacks ability to attach less modifying case or vest. I want case "UPSIDE DOWN" (i.e., case up and knife handle down) for easy grabbing when needed. Ask questions and look longer for a better purposed case or better vest.
