Three words that best describe the Kershaw Sea Hunter Knife with spear point blade; Grippy, Lightweight, Sharp! Fighting off Great Whites is not the only purpose for having a great dive knife. In fact, in today’s times the dive knife will more than likely be needed to untangle you from the increasing amount of line and net left by other hunters in the ocean these days. If you have ever been on a dive near a kelp forest, you understand the need for a knife to free yourself from sea kelp. In these extreme cases, a good dive knife can be a genuine lifesaver.
Should you have trouble grabbing onto rocks or outcrops, your knife can also be used to anchor yourself to the seabed. Also, as an “underwater communications device” many divers have used their knives to catch their dive buddy’s attention by knocking on the tank.
The Sea Hunter by Kershaw is a slim, lightweight dive knife. The 42012 stainless steel blade is corrosion resistant, while the open-tang construction cuts down on unnecessary weight. The top of the blade has a partial serration that makes it easy to cut through net or line – or you can use the built-in cord-cutter notch. The injection-molded handles on the Sea Hunter has neon accents for easy visibility in a marine environment.
The special Kershaw Diver’s Sheath that comes with the Sea Hunter features a press-n-pull mechanism that locks the blade in the sheath and secures it regardless of your position in the water. The depth-compensating leg straps also have adjustable quick-release buckles.
