Cuda Titanium Bonded Marlin Spike Folding Knife is rated out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beach Ghost from Modernized design corrects older shortcomings The locking blade and marlin spike addresses the safety shortcomings of the earlier rigging knives, making both much safer to use. The partially serrated blade aids in cutting different types of lines, getting a good bite on both natural and synthetic fibers. The Cuda pattern grip panels help with retention when hands and knife are wet and the German stainless steel is perfect for resisting rust over older carbon steel blades. I wish I'd had this knife a few years ago when I was racing competively, it really is a huge improvement over the older rigging knives. Well done CUDA!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Iain65 from Not good for sailors Just received me knife and I am disappointed. The Push on lever to unlock and close does not fold like the pictures illustrates and stick out to much to make this a knife that can be carried in a pocket. It will hurt someone IMHO. Whomever designed this needs to rethink what they have done as it is not suitable for carrying in you pocket and there is not place to connect to a lanyard, so not for the active sailor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abraxialflame from A nice tool Its compact, comfortable, and performs. The knife blade shape is perfect for rope-related tasks, and the tip works well for precise cutting. The marlin spike is perfect for tackling tough knots, however the locking mechanism for the spike is either not very sturdy or mine has an issue, because it does not lock it in place.Other than that, its great. It went right in my tool box. When you are doing crane lifts, speed is crucial, and it really helps getting the rope off quickly. For the price point/value go grab one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Razor from Nice but needs a slight design change The grip, locking blade, and locking marlin spike are all great; however, the release lever for the spike doesn't fold down as in photos, and even the photo position isn't good enough. It needs to either fold back flush or fold forward over the blade, either one would be an improvement (over the blade would be best). I'm going to trim some of the metal off the lever to allow it to fold back flush and drill a hole through the end of it for a lanyard. Otherwise a great knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdieA from Even better than expected! I was looking for a high quality knife that would fit in my pocket and not be too bulky. It's thin but really well made. High quality construction. Sharp sturdy blade. It has a Marlin spike that I wasn't sure I would even use it just seemed like an extra I wouldn't use. I did use it and now I use it all the time! It's a handy little tool. It's a terrific all around knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blsmith from Great knife for the tackle box This knife is made with very high quality parts, the handle is rubber coated to prevent slipping in your hands when wet. The Marlin spike is very useful when untying knots and you don't have to worry about the knife corroding. It is a very useful tool for a tackle box wherever you fish. I would recommend this knife to anyone who is a avid fisherman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mike7896 from Good boat / fishing knife! This is a great knife to keep on your boat or in tackle box as it being stainless there is not the worry of rust / corrosion and the marlin spike is surprisingly handy! I did try to dull the knife a bit as I cut things on various surfaces but it still seemed to work fine but I still sharpened it more. A sharp knife is a good knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hankisk from Great! These are now my favorite shears , they are great , thick steel, nice good sized hex bolt and nut holding them together , and you get put all four fingers in the bottom loop , for powerful shearing , short blades give you more cutting power at the tips also , just great !
