The 4⅜-inch titanium blade of this dive knife features a pointed tip, serrated and nonserrated edges, and a line cutter. The ergonomic rubber grip is easy to hold and is textured for a secure and powerful grip — and it is available in several colors. The full-tang knife includes a sturdy titanium hammer on the bottom of the handle.

This line cutter is only 4 inches long and can easily be attached to a BC or strapped to your body. Simply squeeze the sides of the handle and pull to free the knife from its sheath. The 304-stainless steel blade also features a bottle opener for when your day of diving is done.

This foldable, compact knife is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can be flicked open single-handedly. But it manages to pack a lot of bite into its small package. The gimping at the base of the blade provides a safe, solid perch for your thumb and allows for a sturdy grip for maximum control and cutting power. The fully serrated hawkbill blade is made using Spyderco's rust-resistant H1 steel. The knife was designed to be ambidextrous, and the clip can be switched from one side to the other.
