Shopping around for a small knife to mount to a pfd.
I was originally considering an NRS co-pilot in titanium but iits not so great reviews (apparently the spring in its sheath rusts easily) and price are keeping me away.
The CRKT Neckolas and Bear Claw seem to fit the bill - they aren't titanium (really looking for something that would be lesser/no maintenance - but as long as they don't rust after a quick rinse I am ok) - any comments on which would be the better knife to mount on pfd - almost all paddling done on Saltwater?
Thanks in advance!,

Knife handle has the clip arrangement not the sheath. Comes in 3 blade styles. About $45.

I agree with Marshall, I picked up the Wenoka titanium last spring, has been on my vest ever since. Carried on ocean and whitewater. Stays put , no rust and a good value. Got mine via amazon.
Titanium as a blade steel|

This interests me. I had never heard of pure titanium as a blade metal.

Not sure why I'm so interested in this topic since I'm not in the market for a knife, but I like knives.

Forget the Neckolas. I have one, and seriously - I can't think of a good use for it. The sheath is pretty pitiful, as a clip-on. There is no good way to attach it to a pfd, and I don't care to use any kind of neck-knife while paddling. I have come to the conclusion that I don't like serrated blades. While I can tolerate partial serrations, the fully serrated blade has limited use (and questionable at that). And to top it off, I am unimpressed with the way the knife clips into the sheath.
