    EMT shears. They cut through coins as easily as nets and rope.

    Man, you're about as obvious as Beaver Divers when it comes to promotion....

    I carry EMT sheers on the right and a DIR cutting knife (from DGE) on the left.

    I don't do 'big' knifes.

    My knife goes into the back of computer, gauge unit. It is only 3-4" of blade. I just have to remember to remove it and pack in my checked baggage. Got caught trying to board an airplane with a knife in the PI. Fortunately I was allowed to pack it in a box and have it brought as checked baggage.

    I use shears.

    To me big knives look dorky but Chatterton makes a good case as to why he needs a big knife. But this is the exact type of thing that inspires other divers to start carrying around big knives and somewhere down the chain these divers completely forget the reason why they need them, they just know they do.

    I carry a big ass knife strapped to my leg. It's very sharp. I carry a small z knife velcroed to the pocket of my bc. And I keep a pair of trauma shears attached to my emergency lanyard.

    I ALWAYS dive with at least one knife. I have one attached to by BC inflator hose all the time. If I'm wreck diving I strap another knife to the inside of one calf. Same with a flashlight. I ALWAYS dive with at least one light no matter when or where. B
