Default Diving Knives

I'm going diving later this month in Mexico and want a new dive knife with
holster.

Doesn't have to be a "dive knife" just a semi-long knife with leg holster.

Any suggestions?

Personally, I love Spyderco's Tasman Salt series.

Yes, a folder, but corrosion resistant like crazy. Bright handles are visible even in the deep.

I prefer the “Blue Tang” made by Underwater Kinetics. It breaks completely down for cleaning and has a great feel underwater even if you are wearing gloves, additionally the sheath is a one hand easy release but secures the knife extremely well.

Underwater Kinetics Blue Tang Dive Knife
Two blade designs, one hand release sheath and a patented corrosion reducing handle linkage make this traditional dive knife a winner for almost any style of diving.

Wow! I checked out the UK website, nice knives and they're reasonable too. Is that the Titanium model Scubie?

Nope, mine is regular steel (sorry don't know what type it is) but I keep it coated with silicon grease and clean it after each dive so I have never had a problem. The butt cap screws off and the synthetic screw piece that tabs into the tang of the knife comes off then the handle slips off and your ready to clean. Let dry coat with silicon and your ready to go again.

If your interested I'll break mine down and post up some pictures.

Scubie

The closest I'll ever come to diving is if I slip in the bathtub.

On the topic of diving knives...back many years ago, when I was diving, I chose the blunt tip knife. Most uses for a diving knife are slicing or prying...more use as a utilitarian tool than need for a pointed sticker.
One of the first thing to happen with some divers is they end up breaking the pointed tip right off of their knives.

Blunt Tip Scuba Diving Knives

Also, research the different grades of stainless steel and get a good grade...not all stainless is created equal. In any event, you'll want to rinse everything in a fresh water bath after diving anyhow. Stainless may not rust, per se, but it can corrode somewhat with salt water exposure.

Regards,

Swampbilly
