One of my favorite Christmas presents this year (after the pajamas with the bunny feet) is my Fury 9-inch dive knife. It’s very well built, with a great snap-in sheath. But, best of all, it’s got a cool factor (or, as my son says, it’s covered in epic awesome-sauce). As soon as I strap it on my ankle, I feel like Magnum P.I. or Jason Bourne.
I haven’t had a chance to take it out in the “wild” yet, but I wore it all Christmas day in anticipation. Yes, I was a a sight to see with a 9-inch dive knife strapped to my bunny pajama legs! One of the best things about living in the South is the mild winters. Today is supposed to get up to 54 degrees and, as soon as I get the gutter up on the pergola, I’m hoping to hit the river for a quick paddle.
Several times I’ve needed a knife when paddling (typically to remove fishing line, hooks, etc.) and I’m always a little anxious about carrying a pocket knife as it could easily fall out of my pocket. Plus, they don’t tend to be very water resistant. The Fury 9-inch dive knife has a rubberized handle, sheath and straps. Since the knife “clicks” into the sheath and the sheath attaches to my legs with belt-like rubber straps, I don’t have to worry about losing it.
After I get a chance to use it while paddling, I’ll try to write a more thorough review. Until then, here are a few pictures of the Fury 9-inch dive knife:
