The folding, lock-blade NRS Captain Rescue Knife is a great choice for guides and swiftwater rescue professionals. Features a rope cutting hook at the tip and a quick-slicing serrated edge.
  • Unique design includes an efficient rope-cutting hook at the knife's blunt tip. A skilled hand can safely slip the hook under a rope pinned to a person's body.
  • Super sharp serrated edge easily slices through rope and webbing.
  • Folding blade opens with one hand and locks in place for security.
  • A spring metal clip keeps the knife where you want it, or you can remove the clip for a sleeker profile.
  • Reversible stainless clip attaches to lash tab and lets right and left handers operate it smoothly. When removing the clip and reinstalling it on the other side of the sheath, we recommend applying Loctite® or other thread locker to the screws to prevent loosening.
  • Blunt tip also serves as a slot screwdriver.
  • Lanyard hole lets you conveniently tether the knife to prevent loss.
  • The handy bottle opener will hopefully be the feature you use most.

      A:

      I purchased this knife as a sample for when I teach swiftwater rescue classes. The clip is off set a distance on the back and does not fit/slip into a PFD lash tab. I recommend to my students they carry this type of knife in the PFD pocket as a second or back up blade. Nice tool - but worn anywhere on the exterior of the vest would make it easy to reach.....but would probably be gone when you went to grab it in a time of need.

      A:

      NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! Carried mine paddling on my pants being a open boater
      shortly after buying yet then placed on my PFD, first time out after a
      solid roll- gone... Informed NRS who stated maybe improving the clip, not
      sure where that has gone and haven't replaced mine yet but looking
      around... First product which led me looking around..... Adam Wade...

      A:

      It seems to attach just fine on my PFD. 
      It does seem that if I was to snag it on a rock or something while upside down it may pull off. I haven't had that happen yet though because when I set up for a role the front of my PFD is guarded. Hope this helps.

    Will this fit in the greenjacket knife pocket? Or is it too big?

      Yes, the NRS Captain rescue knife just fits in the Greenjacket knife pocket.

      A:

      I have the GreenJacket by Astral PDF, it does fit the knife pocket. That's
      the good news, bad news is if you want to use the lanyard hole, it's on the
      wrong end of the knife (the inside not the outside of the knife), so it
      needs to be a bit long so it will stick out of the pocket for easy access.
      This is my only compaint with the knife, otherwise a good all around blade.

      It's not big at all, even kinda small... i don't use the greeenjacket
      myself but from videos and pictures it looks fine.

      A:

      It catches on the knife pocket a little bit, especially the thumb release
      on the blade. It still fits though.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes it will fit. I would only insert the knife into the pocket up to the posts on the blade (the posts which allows you to extend the blade one-handed). The posts on the blade tend to get fouled in the knife pocket if the knife is fully inserted into the pocket.

      Used it only in salt water lakes, just follow normal procedure after any
      saltwater use. Rinse in fresh water.

      We wouldn't recommend it for use in saltwater. Our titanium Pilot and Co-Pilot are the only ones we'd recommend.

      I primarily paddle in brackish water, sometimes in salt. So far the knife has shown no signs of rust or tarnish.

      Works fine for me in the warm Israeli Mediterranean sea.
      Although it gets a bit of rust around the angled blade it can be
      cleaned quickly with a bit of scratching.

      Comments about NRS Captain Rescue Knife:

      Very impressed with the options , size , weight, and blade design... Not impressed that my clip / knife popped off on the second day of use.. So hopefully I got the one that was the anomalie, and everyone else has success... I 'was' super excited until I saw the micro screw and clip sitting there in my vest...
      Overall, it seemed to function solidly in the three 6mm prusik cords I cut with the hook...hook opening did seem a touch small for hook cutting larger sizes...not sure of the design intent of that hook...

        Comments about NRS Captain Rescue Knife:

        I got this knife to replace my bear claw knife that came out of its sheath on the river to never be found again, I wanted something that would fit I the knife pocket in my green jacket, and this knife fits very well and stays in. You can pull it out when you need it, but I do not think it will fall out on its own. I is easy to open this knife with one hand and it locks so it won't close on you. It requires a little bit of effort to close with one hand but it can be done. I used the knife hook to cut some rope and it sliced right through it.
