why this product

This floating survival kit knife has been thoughtfully considered for an emergency scenario while out at sea. The stainless steel blade is punched to decrease the weight of the knife. A rounded knife tip ensures that you never accidentally pierce inflatables. If dropped overboard, the bright waterproof wood handle floats and remains visible and retrievable.

For further assurance, the knife is attached to its leather sheath with a string lanyard. The knives are made in accordance to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) standards and have been assigned a NATO stock number as an indication of its approval for military and emergency use. 

use & care

Adhere to emergency inflatable craft with bright orange fabric patch and use as necessary.
