This knife should be standard issue to every sailor. As it is, every sailor worth their salt has one strapped to their belt. This tool is indispensable to the job. I used it to strip paint, splice lines, clean fingernails...you name it. I kept the blade sharp enough to cut a six-inch hawser like it was butter. I still have my original knife from thirty years ago when I finished boot camp. Along with my dungarees, it was the first thing I purchased at the 32nd street exchange.
