Dive knives are a necessary accessory for scuba divers/Spearfishers, but unfortunately many novice divers don’t carry them. Start with a small dive knife, just because James Bond used a huge knife in his underwater fights, doesn’t mean you need one.
Dive knives can range in size from 2 inches to 6 inches, but if you are beginning diver who hasn’t used a knife underwater before, starting with the smaller knife is always preferable. Larger knives can be more awkward and difficult to handle underwater, increasing the chance of injury. We recommend you start with a blade under 4 inches, if you’re purchasing your first dive knife.
Always use a sheath, as a dive knife won’t be very helpful if it’s on the bottom of the ocean floor:-) For this reason, make sure to attach your dive knife to your thigh with a high-quality sheath and check routinely to make sure it hasn’t drifted away.
