Excellent all-around tool for waterman and landlubber alike Our Sailor's Rigging Knife is from the industrious, no-nonsense work ethic of tough men and women who still make their living at sea. This knife design is optimized for completing serious tasks in demanding conditions. The blade is purposely wide but not too long, and it has no sharp, stabbing point. This sturdy construction allows for its principal task: to cut rope, everything from fine cording to heavy ship's mooring line. The heft of the 1" wide blade makes it strong enough to take a light blow from a mallet, to help cut through stubborn rope. The wide bolster and tail that bookend the handle protect the hands from sliding along the blade and make it harder to accidentally slip from your grasp when working aloft, in pitching conditions, or on slippery decks. A rust-resistant 3-3/4" stainless-steel blade, rosewood handle, and brass bolsters combine form and functionality. Overall length is 8-1/2". Comes with a USA-made leather belt-sheath.

  • Beautiful work knife

    Chuck Jordan, 8/23/2020 A very nice, solid work knife. Took a little work getting the edge right but very sharp now and holds an edge quite well. An interesting shape but one can understand it looking at the primary use that caused this knife to come into existence. Very please with the purchase and seems to be fairly priced considering the quality. Thumbs up on this one!!
  • Sailors knife

  • Useful and beautiful

    George, 2/4/2019 A unique piece. Feels great in the hand - well balanced, ready for work. But at the same time is beautiful enough to be a display piece.

  • Sailors Rigging Knife, Amazing!

    Andrea Pratten, 12/25/2018 Husband is thrilled. Great quality.
  • Great all around knife.

    Mel Gause, 9/1/2018 I am often looking for knife for cutting different materials in my shop and thought the rigging knife might be a useful all around tool. It did not disappoint. Seems well made and has a good edge. The only change I would make is a fatter handle as it seems a little narrow but it’s not a deal breaker. Nice heavy duty blade that should serve for many years.
