Want a knife to make your friends green with envy? The NRS Titanium Pilot Knife is lightweight, exceedingly strong and highly corrosion-resistant.
  • Titanium is super lightweight, stronger than steel and holds a keen edge.
  • The combination of a smooth and serrated edge, along with a rope cutting hook, meets all your cutting needs.
  • The corrosion-resistant titanium blade makes it an ideal knife for use in any type of water.
  • The blunt tip design protects you and your gear against unintentional puncture. Also doubles as a flat-head screwdriver.
  • The unique sheath firmly locks the knife in place and only lets it go when you squeeze both sides of the release.
  • The contoured handle and rubberized grip gives you maximum control of the blade even in wet conditions.
  • The sheath clip attaches firmly to a PFD lash tab.
  • The handle has a built in glass breaking tip on the end.
  • A convenient bottle opener and oxygen tank valve wrench are integrated into the handle.

    Q:

    Why is only one side of the blade sharp while the other side (opposite of the smooth/serrated edge) dull?

      A:

      Most knives, short of a dagger, are only sharp on one (cutting) edge.

      A:

      It is my impression that one side is not sharp so that in the event of an emergency it would allow the knife to be leveraged against the body without risking harm. I.e. Cut off tangled vest without risking injury. My partner did sharpen the dull half to have a slight edge for his own reasons.
      Hope that helps...

      In the event you are entangled in netting or rope the different types of blade allow multi use escape.

      A:

      A knife designed for water safety/rescue work can often be used to cut yourself, or someone else, out of a bad situation. That dull side can safely be against the body while the other side is cutting away.

      A:

      If trying to cut a line wrapped around your arm, leg, etc, a double sided blade would be a problem. The single sided blade with blunt tip allows you to work the knife under the strap or rope to be cut without cutting yourself or your raft. I love the knife by the way! I use it kayaking and while surf casting. The beer bottle opener comes in very handy too.

    Is there any way to get this knife with orange rubber handle? We are considering outfitting several rescue staff with it, but need a bright color on the knife.

      I have used plastidip for application to knives. You can get a "make your own color" kit to get the color you want. Four coats should be enough.

    Q:

    I currently have a co-pilot and considering buying the titanium pilot, however having a challenge with the holder. I love that it is sturdy and not going to come out of holder until I take it out, but don't seem to have a good way to connect it to my backpack. Are there other options for a holder - I want to attach to my backpack shoulder strap so that the knife is up/down (vs. sideways across the stap) but even if I use a velcro cross strap it falls right off of it since there is that opening to slide it on. Clear as mud? Thanks for your input !!

      A:

      I would suggest either attaching it with plastic zip ties or sewing a thick piece of webbing to your backpack strap, that would serve like the lash tab on life jackets, as an anchor point.

    I was so excited to receive my new titanium Pilot and it is everything I thought it would be. Unfortunately, it's just a little more than I thought it would be. When attached to my Stohlquist Rocker PVD lash tab, it extends down so far that it would puncture my spray skirt. Not necessarily a fault of the knife. It's just too big a knife for a Rocker, so I'll be returning it.

    I found the knife to be about what I expected. A light weight accesible cutting tool to have easy at hand while on the river. The cutting edge is minimal, the serated portion takes half the blade and does not cut so well. But does manage with minimal effort. Very light weight and rust proof, handy scabbard. I have a large hand and the handle is a little too minimal for my hand size, but the grip is secure. Not a great knife but certainly a useful cutting tool.

      I have this blade with me at all times when I'm out paddle boarding rapids or deep ocean waters. Super light, durable, and corrosion resistant I feel are it's best traits. Somewhat pricey, but very high quality so the cost is worthwhile.

              Comments about NRS Titanium Pilot Knife:

              I use the knife sea kayaking. If you boat on salt water, you are going to want to pay the extra amount to get this titanium knife. I've had the rust-proof and so-called "corrosion-resistant" knives, but they corrode in salt water. If all you do is fresh water, then stainless steel gives the best value. For salt water, go for the titanium blade.
