Diving knives – how to choose?
Everyone who has been diving at least once (snorkeling with special equipment) knows that a diving knife is not a “cool feature” of equipment or some kind of underwater weapon, but an indispensable tool for a diver. Without exaggeration, in emergency cases, it can save your life. It is very convenient for them to cut the left fishing nets or annoying algae that are encountered on the way of the diver. With it, you can repair equipment (tighten screws), saw, dig or give a sound signal to a partner.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing a diving knife:
1. It must be made of corrosion-resistant steel, since most of the time it is in the water.
2. The handle should be ergonomic – comfortable to grip with a bare hand or with a glove.
3. It should be well fixed in the sheath or on the wetsuit. Particular attention should be paid to the place of fixation on the body: so that if necessary it can be quickly reached, and it should not interfere with the diver's swimming.
4. Diving knife, that piece of equipment that is often lost, so no need to buy very expensive ones.
