A commercial diver friend of mine, bought a job lot of commercial dive knives from New Zealand a while back, as the ones supplied by his company were poor. Subsequently, they started supplying good quality ones!

He has several of these knives for sale now. They do not come with a holder/sheath, knife only.

Doh! Near me, Winchester UK. £11 per knife plus p and p. Not his website, i just searched for the brand name on the knife and came up with the website. That was just to show an example.

They are also known as the Green River knives (do a search). I have one and they are sharper than a sharp thing on a very sharp day. In fact, only HP's razor sharp wit is sharper :D

£11 plus P&P is an absolute bargain!

He did mention that they were called green something or others :p He did also mention that they are very very sharp! As mentioned, he is a commercial diver and using them at 150m+

The only other thing he mentioned was that they use a blend of high grade steel, hence the sharpness, and need tlc after each dive as they will build up some surface rust.

I've had mine for a few years now, and there's not a blemish on it. I just rinse off in fresh water . . . . occasionally......

They are far better than the £30 + knives that everyone seems to buy these days

:) Glad someone has used them and can give a real comment. I lost my knife a while back, and have bought three others (don't ask!) since then, and aquired one of these today too. Got a few spares now :p

Seeing as your a new member can you introduce yourself and maybe get someone to verify your dive club etc as there are some scammers around. you may be genuine but we need to know that for sure. no offence intended.

Did the intro a while back ;) As for a dive club, i do not belong to one. I dive with my regular buddies. Now, lets see, no offence intended, but for the people i have been pm'ing, i have offered to send the knife/knives, and then tell them how much the total will be after i have posted, as i dont yet know how much the p and p.. If it was a scam, i think i am doing this backwards!

Thanks for the replies people. I do believe that they have now been sold. When i catch up with him today i'll confirm that, and post back incase anyone else was a little late.

To all those who have supplied an address, i'll try my best to get it sorted this afternoon once i am home.

I made a sheath using a brass eyelet kit (£3 off eBay) and welded the webbing together (just melt the edges) to give it the proper "Blue Peter" look. Bit of bungee through the top loop with a plastic ball on it and it's ace. Will cut through anything like, well, a hot knife through soft butter. Certainly managed to chop through a mate's hot dog in a flash while he had his back turned, leaving him with 1/2 a hotdog and me with a nice snack.
