    Q:

    I love this knife, put to the test on the rogue river last year and spread the avocados, opened beers and cut tomatoes. But the clip ripped off in a cataraft meets whitewater meets rock incident. Can i get a new sheath? I can send pictures or return the sheath? Let me know, thanks.

    Q:

    Can the NRS Co_Pilot be utilized in saltwater?
    Several reviews indicate that if exposed to Saltwater the knife it will rust. I also am concerned about the metal spring located inside the clip, if this is able to withstand saltwater conditions
    I purchased this knife to be used solely for saltwater usage. Is this knife recommended for extended saltwater conditions?

      A:

      We recommend the titanium model for saltwater use. The steel model will rust. You can reduce that by washing and oiling the knife after every use, but you'll still probably get some pitting.

      Bought it for a friend. It's pretty good but you have to rinse it immediately after each trip. I use an Atlantic Salt that does not rust but costs 3 to 4 x

      I have used it in salt water conditions and it has rusted--IF I fail to rinse it and wipe it down after each use. The spring was fine after multiple years.

    I love the compact size, and both me and my friends love the bottle-opener. My main beef is that it's not obvious enough which side is sharp and which side is the flat side. I can envision cutting my thumb in a pressure situation due to holding the knife upside down.

    It a great looking knife but it's not for use any where near salt water. After only three outings in the Gulf of Mexico there is rust that keeps forming on the knife edge and in a couple of places where the yellow cushion grip and knife metal meet. What concerns me the most is that the spring used behind the "ejection button" on the sheath is completely rusted already and will probably fail in a couple of months. And this is after the knife and holder have been submerged in fresh water after every use. Very disappointing!

      Comments about NRS Co-Pilot Knife:

      I have the co pilot lashed on my pfd for kayaking. Out of the box this is a razor sharp knife. I like serrated edges, goes through rope like its butter.Jimping before and after the guard helps keep the knife from slipping out of your hand.Also helps with control. Perfect size so it aint in the way. So far the sheath seems bomb proof. The open design makes it easy to get at.Fits in the lash tab of your pfd tight so, no way thats coming out. The tabs that release the knife are great. You have to press both to release it. If you accidentaly push one, the knife isn't coming off.Plus it opens beers and drives flathead screws. Another solid product from NRS.

        Comments about NRS Co-Pilot Knife:

        I installed this on my Zen Type V PFD. It is a perfect fit for the lash-tab.
        It uses a unique release where you squeeze both sides of the sheath and the knife releases directly away from the body. It is an unusual design but it is intuitive and easy to perform with just a little bit of practice and it does not require 'elbow room' to draw the knife from the sheath.

          As an accomplished open water diver, a knife becomes part of your gear. As a beginner kayaker, a knife also is eccential piece of your gear. Cutting lines etc. This knife is a perfect addition to my equipment. It,s rubber handle helps stop slippage, and it is all steal.

          Comments about NRS Co-Pilot Knife:

          The knife is really compact and could be very useful. I was a little let down that the black one was out of stock. Most of all as a collector of knives I was very disappointed to see the knife was made in China. I was hoping for some good old Made in the USA 440 steel

            Other knives I've owned were too long and I frequently bumped them with my left had when I needed to row hard and fast through whitewater. This one stays up and out of the way. Very secure in the sheath, too.
