Hi,
Please take a look at this article released by Hayling Island Kitesurf Association. It is intended to educate kitesurfers in the importance of carrying the correct type of line knife. I know some folk will make the decision never to carry one, that is their choice, but if you are inclined to carry a knife then this may help you to choose the best design for our sport.

I carry two knifes and check them often. Thanks for posting your story, A 15$ investment can save you a lot of pain or even worse :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire:

I think the eezy cut is best on the market.

I studied this topic a couple of years back and concluded this type of knife would be best in most circumstances..
The standard knives in harness do not cut the thickest piece of rope in your setup...
