Sailor's Knives - Yachting Knives

Our Specialists for Seafaring and Water Sports

Sailor's knives are based on knives with fixed or foldig blade used by seamen in the commercial shipping. In most cases their design is rather simple and they are characterised by typical features.

With fixed blades they are known as sailor's rigging knives and are often equipped with a separate marlin spike to open knots and to splice ropes. As sailor's knives are used to fillet fish it is common to use a drop point blade. Handle slabs are traditionally made of wood, in more modern variations nonslip materials are used for comfortability and signal colors for a better recognizability.

Our yachting knives with folding blades are combined with additional functional devices as locking marlin spikes or/and shackle key.
