Not originally my idea, but...I don't normally carry a pocket knife, but my wife likes things with a nautical theme. She has been after me for a year to buy this knife for myself. I finally went for it, and I'm glad I did. Well made, looks great. I may not carry it all the time, but it will be kept handy and displayed on our sailboat. We'll find some excuse to leave it out in the open.
High value in high quality craftsmanshipI purchased the 3" version of this anchor knife because I wanted a fine quality nautical style sheepsfoot blade in a good-looking handle. I was not disappointed by the appearance or the quality. The handle is nicely polished and substantial in the hand with a rounded-off, squared section profile. The brass anchor inlay is well detailed and perfectly flush, unlike less expensive nautical knives. Equally, the fit and finish overall is superb, and I was very pleased to see the use of 12C27 stainless steel for the blade. This metal is known for both its excellent rust resistence and ability to take a fine edge. Note that the blade does not nave a nail nick or groove to assist in opening it, but it projects as much as 1/2" at its widest point when closed, making fairly easy to open even with its firm opening action. A really nice version of a nautical themed knife that is well worth the premium over others of its type.
Anchor knifeI am a sailor and though not always on my boat I like things nautical. This little knife is a constant reminder of where my heart is. It fits well in my pocket and is easy to keep an edge on.
Becoming more becomingI carry this little (3-inch) beauty in a pocket of an old Willis&Geiger suede vest. I use it form all kinds of stuff, and sort of enjoy the comments it evokes when others are at hand, i.e. "Cool blade," "lemme see that," "where can I get one?" Etc. it's a comforting little presence, that puts a little extra steam in my step. The older it gets,the more I like it. The steam as well as the knife.
