Good river knife.

My wife has the co-pilot and I had the pilot which is basically the larger version of the same knife. We both guided commercially on the colorado without loosing it so far (2 years her, 1 year for me). Honestly the co-pilot has a better design because it doesn't have the sharpish point on the end of the handle. I ended up taking a grinder too the handle shortening the handle and getting rid of the point- essentially making it a co-pilot. One caution is that when mounted horizontally on the astral Willis PFD as pictured here it doesn't get in the way when kayaking but can be a pain when rowing. Also it holds its edge fairly well. Great river knife aka security and cream cheese spreader.
