Looking for a new whitewater knife which will live on the outside of my PFD, any help/opinions/options welcome to find the perfect piece of rescue equipment at the correct price.
Thanks all

Having seen a couple of NRS pilot knives I'm sold now, just the size to decide upon, not sure I could cope mentally if I ever lost the Ti version though.

Gerber EZ out rescue knife.
As used by the rescue services. Check it out on their site. It is about £40. I like mine.

I recently up graded my Astral Aqua vest 300 to the new Green jacket and also change from a pocket (Typhoon) knife to the NRS Co Pilot. Its sits nicely on the front of the BA and doesn't get in the way. Can be easily got at with both hands. Simples

The Gerber EZ is a very good piece of kit and the price/link Gman put up above is a real bargain compared tothe rrp £40.

I haven't used it in anger yet but my new Lomo knife is looking good, sharp and serrated blade and a few possible attachments to BA. Good locking mechanism on sheath too.

And it's only £12.50!

Not perfect tho. Mine fell out in the top site doing a course at CT.

I have an NRS green knife now. Very nice!

This is my set up at the moment. Got a friend to stitch it on like 8 months ago and its been spot on since. Had a homo knife, fell off pretty quick. I like Hardy's bear claw one too but couldn't find one when I was looking.
