Which Myerchin Knife Should I Choose?
There's a lot of choice: Fixed or Folding Plain or Pro Blade Captain or Crew
For my work I would always choose a plain blade as it gives a cleaner cut to the lines I’m working with, The Pro blades are very good for cutting through lines very quickly.
I have a W100, fixed bladed knife (pictured) in my splicing kit & I always carry a plain, folding captains knife on me which sits on my belt ready for action, along with my sailors multi tool. But if you want something easier to carry and keep in your pocket, a crew blade is for you.
The handle choice is a completely personal one, I love the wood handle on my W100, certainly the most popular Myerchin knife/handle combination. I also love the titanium on my folder.
But the bone handles that have been personally engraved with nautical themes, scrimshaw (Photo credit scrimshanders.com) look pretty awesome too.
