Episode 004 – Discussion on Dive Knives | Divecast | Podcast

Do you dive with a knife? In this episode I discuss the reasons for diving with a knife.

In the tip of the week I offer some considerations about where to mount your dive knife.

The Gear Junkie’s Garage is looking forward to a new product from Aqwary call the Smart Console… 70 dive buddies?!

Show Notes

In March I posted an article called ‘Is a knife part of your dive kit?’. When I added a link to that post on the Business of Diving Institute page on LinkedIn I had no idea that over 120 people would comment on the topic of carrying a dive knife. I’ve been through several knives myself and these days I carry a Zeagle Line Cutter.

Tip of the Week

I’ve found that the best place to keep my dive knife/line cutter is on my shoulder strap. This makes it easy to get at it under nearly any diving circumstances.

  • Great podcast!
    And I couldn’t agree anymore that putting your knife on your shoulder while diving is much better than say, your waste or ankle. Makes it more accessible, and honestly around the ankle can be hard to grab when you dive.

    Again, great podcast and definitely will leave a positive review :)

  • By the way, keep posting your podcasts Stephen! I really like them, and they are super informative. And I just like the personality of it, makes it feel like I’m listening to not only an expert, but a real person. I hate when people get all technical and stuff.
    Anyways good stuff :)

    Thanks for the kind words! I am getting into the swing of podcasting and I’ll admit that getting one out each week has turned out to be a challenge. I’m committed to it and it will get there! What segments or subjects have you enjoyed most (other than knives – lol).
