Pilot Knife

NRS designed its Pilot Knife specifically for freshwater boaters and rescue professionals due to the extreme convenience it adds to the water world. The stainless steel blade features a blunt tip so you don't accidentally puncture your boat or yourself, and the edge has smooth and serrated sections to help you cut through a variety of objects. NRS added a rust-resistant coating to the blade to keep it shiny and sharp for a long time.

The glass-reinforced polypropylene handle utilizes a TPR over-mold to give you a good grip, and it features a rope-cutting hook, a glass-breaking point at the end, a bottle opener, and a square hole that doubles as a valve wrench for oxygen tanks. NRS made the sheath out of glass-reinforced nylon to keep it strong, and two release mechanisms prevent the blade from falling out while you paddle. The sheath attaches to PFD lash tabs so you can always access it.

Knife for Pros

I've put it through the wringer

This is the knife that stays on my Professional Rescue PFD. It has a BIG profile, which may not be awesome on a small kayaking PFD, but I LOVE it for my application. I?m usually wearing gloves in cold water, so having a knife big enough to grab and feel is nice. Add in the fact that it mounts very securely on a lash tab and the sheath makes getting to the knife very easy, and it?s perfect. Cool extra features like a glass punch, rope cutting notch, and grippy handle make it great for professional rescuers. I also love that the whole thing is one piece of steel. No durability issues there!

Safe way to carry a 3" blade.

I've put it through the wringer

As a first a swift water first responder I am required to have a 3? blade, which is challenging to safely do in a fixed blade knife. The sheath keeps this tucked away and secure on my PFD. The window punch is a nice add on feature, eliminating an extra tool in my already extensive kit. A well thought our knife and sheath.
