  • Hi from Phuket Thailand

    Hi everyone,
    I have been lurking here a while, and thought I should at least say hello.
    I'm based in Phuket Thailand, and own two small companies here.
    One is Sphere Diving Systems LTD, and the other is Tibby-Adapters.

    If your over my way, stop by and say hello

    Cheers

    Good to have you here mate. Would be quite curious to get your take on water sports/dive blades thats for certain as you venture into the posting side of these forums!
    Society seems to acknowledge opinions more so than knowledge...

      you know it's funny, but I have a Theory on that...
      We see thousands of divers a month here, and when I was working on the day trip boats, you saw basicly two types of knives (Small and sharp or Old Shark/whale/Kraken killing implements)
      Oddly enough, it seemed like people skill levels are inversely proportioned to the size of the blade.
      That being said, mine is a cheap pairing knife, that has the blade modified to 1.5 inches long, and a sheepsfoot blade.

      Cut it off with a dremel tool, round off the top, polish it a little, sharpen it so it's like a razor...
      A sheath made from weightbelt webbing folded in to an S shape, one side longer and the short side 2.75 inches long (Sew that side first) and it fits right in with about an inch of the handle sticking out.

      Thats about as complicated as I get for a Dive knife.

              Welcome to the forum.
              I'm surprised that people bother to pack diving knives through airports these days.
              I used to carry a small Kershaw Mariner and had to use it once to free my buddy from fishing line at 27 Mt. When they started making fun of people carrying knives on dive boats in Australia, I went to a Spyderco Pacific Salt folder tethered to a D ring inside my BC pocket. Now with all the hassle of travelling with folders, I just have a Kydex sheath tethered in my BC pocket and borrow a steak knife from the resort.

                Hey it sound like you can actually dive, How come I always get the people that "I did my open water course a few years ago, but I think I'll be ok.." kind of folks?
