Don't think I ONLY have the Myerchin. That's just my official "rigging" knife. I wore that whenever I was on deck on the tallships. I worked aboard SSVs Corwith Cramer and Westward with SEA and OCF respectively. I have a fair share of knives on the boat.

As for spikes, the stainless spike Myerchin has is very soft - I've bent it several times. The steel spike I keep in my sheath now is true hard steel and doesn't bend. I've used it to open many 1 and 2" shackles. It doesn't even know it's being used with our puny 1/2" shackles.

Hope this helps!

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
