Doesn't float, it's a dive knife. Bought it at Groundhog divers in Kitchener for $60.

I've got a Wenoka dive knife on my vest. Very durable, sharp and easily accessible in an emergency.

Just hope I never need it.

What does it cost? It looks like it wouldn't float, does it?

The deal of the Fishing and Boating Show was the purchase of a medium sized ziplock bag for $5. Hmmm... then you could fill it up with bulk plastic baits of all differents types. I must have got 30 or more. Just what I need to go along with the 50 or so packages I already have. Couldn't resist though, for $5.

I haven't used the sheath enough to have a good opinion of it. It's kydex, so it's easy enough to modify.

The knife if 1of 5 prototypes that were sent to various whitewater paddlers/writers to test. It never made it to market. Only rescue knife that I know of that has the edge on the "upper" side of the blade.

Obviously The Dawg knows someone in D&D at Spyderco.
    When I was teaching at the IED School, we used to get new stuff from all sorts of vendors to try in the field . Spyderco sent us some ceramic blade knives to try...fail.

   I like that knife but the sheath is pretty bulky.

Also Looking forward to the Jim Saric 2 hr Musky Master session 8-10am on Saturday. Costs $15 but also covers your entry to the show. Could be interesting.

Went this past Saturday, got myself a new E21 Wild Black Carrot stix, 7' Medium Fast with micros. First time buying micros heard lots about them decided to give em a try.

As for the knife, I found one in a pile of 2 for 20 's its MTech folding, with the pinto point as well a serrated edge. with a light sharpening to get it to my liking I found a great knife for essentially 11 bucks.

Still on my wishlist for this coming season is a Lews BB-1 left hand retrieve in the 5.1:1 ratio. hopefully all goes well and I get it :D

Geez! I was just putting my list together on paper... It's a bit absurd! Lol

I really like the benchmades and spyderco. Had a spyderco a while back and lost it, but really loved that knife.

I'm seriously contemplating a sidescan hummingbird unit too. It's overkill, but I love the idea of seeing that level of bottom coverage on my home waters.  Looking forward to seeing all the small sunken boats and snow machines that I know are on the bottom in the area I go to. It will be good for fishing, obviously, but it will also just be cool to check it all out.

Gonna make a serious attempt at going deeper and trying to find some lake trout up there this year too, and probably throwing a downrigger into the mix as well. 

I may end up with a ridiculously over-rigged kayak, but it's gonna be fun  :o ;D :o ;D
