    KNIFE TUSA FK-14 Titanium Mini-Knife

    Appeared in DIVER August 2016
    WHEN I FIRST WENT DIVING, knives were an integral part of my dive-kit, so much so that if I didn't have one strapped to my leg I felt under-dressed, exposed and vulnerable.
    In those days 'the bigger the better' was the buzz-phrase, which led to divers buying and wearing a blade of which Zorro or Crocodile Dundee would have been proud.
    These monster knives were employed for various tasks such as hammering and prying spidge (brass artefacts) from previously untouched wrecks, dispatching a fish or two to be taken for dinner, tightening screws and even cutting lines or nets.
