I use to have one and it got stolen. Was quite the good knife, if not the most loaded. I am thinking to get a skipper and have the spike changed for something more useful for me.

still, this was a great knife when I had it, and specially around restaurants where I used to live, as they never had a good steak knife. The serrations where sharp as hell. The awl has a hole, a rarity today. The locking blade gives extra security, but nowadays, the legality might be an issue.

I have seen that the price difference between this and the skipper is about 15-20 bucks, so I am hesitant to recommend it above the skipper, unless you are in a tight budget. Further more the spike is somewhat useless if you are not on a boat. If it can be modded/replaced, the you can always add a scissor or saw.

all in all, a great, if somewhat limited, knife.
