Watermade Nautical Knife

A sailing yacht rocks and rolls while going through the water, you have to brave the weather and everything is wet and slippery. One hand for the boat, one hand to secure yourself. Nautical knives have been used for hundreds of years. This design provides even more efficiency. Due to the one-handed operation you have always one hand left to secure yourself. All the materials are salt water resistant and often used in boatbuilding: stainless steel, teak, rubber. The knife’s simple and clever construction allows mounting the spring element without a single screw.

This design is eye-catching but also elegant. It's s a desirable object.
