    Hey Rez, is that spike what you use on knots?

    I think all of my current one hand openers are holes. I quite like them, my thumb seems to fit just right in most.

    I do also like a stud though. But don't have one no more.

    Never had a flipper.

    My not at work knife is a flipper. I prefer the part cerrated blades because they are way more effective on rope, and I tend to deal with rope a little more than most people. I am not opposed to a stud for opening, but I have not found one that I am comfortable with, in part because of the whole south paw thing.
    Rez That's a cool knife with the Spike what brand and model? Do you work with boat rigs and knots? Freddie

    John and Freddie,
    The knife is made in Japan for a California company, Myerchin. I believe the model is called the "offshore" folder. I have two fixed blades knives by the same company that I carry at work. One has a separate fid with it and the other is my easy access deck knife. I work as a mariner and the fid is handy for untying knots and for doing simple splices and sometimes adding marking strands on tow lines etc. The spike also works to loosen larger shackles, and the hole in the blade doubles for small shackles and for holding small bolts and nuts steady. I am a medic and deck hand on a Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Station.
