Why is it curved like that? Every marlin spike I have ever seen has been straight. Granted I know next to nothing about marlin spikes or what they are used for, so seeing something new isn't shocking, but it does make me curious.

I thought that's what the straight pin was for?
I guess I've been using it the wrong way then.  :facepalm:

Since they never brought the CT carbon into production, I'm trying to contain my excitement. Especially, since that is only a photoshop image (see red circles, and the pivot region of the spike looks odd too). Anyway, what do you reckon is in the green circle? Photoshop error? Something new?
On the up side, it looks like its going to have 2 eyelets :tu:.

dozens of marlin spikes are curved (most Camillus knives, Spyderco TUSK, Colonial brand, the famous AG Russell Skorpion, all the BUND German Navy Knives, the Boye marine knives, the majority of British Navy Knives and modern versions of it, and dozens others have curved spikes  :salute:)

It's mainly used for untying knots and working with ropes, so it's more common and obvious in marine/boatmen environments and jobs  :tu:

Aren't those "eyelets' too small for any kind of rope a nautical person might use?

The green circle looks like the normal liner lock to me.

I remember reading some where on here about the Indian Navy's Victorinox prototype. If I recall correctly it was very similar to this knife.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

This looks like an actually usable marlin spike, and the OHO blade and liner lock are a great upgrade in my opinion.
Some of the pics show the knife with some without the compass print on the scales. I'd prefer without.

I was hoping they would release a civilian version after it was announced for the Indian Navy--and now they have. I wish it had the wood saw and PE blade like the prototypes, now that would be a usable farm tool. Price seems a bit steep, especially when I can get a British pattern for around $30.

What's weird is the lack of a Phillips or corkscrew--seriously, is this the only SAK to have a backside awl, but nothing else? I guess it's perhaps due to the fact that there's no wood saw, whose spring the Phillips bears on in many models, including the Trekker.

Oh very nice, I will be buying that I can think of loads of uses for the spike. One thing that kinda sucks is I wish the awl wasnt on the back.
