Getting back....Ive found although I cary a couple of Serated edged Knives,the most usefull being a Folder that has a 'Shackle opener' and 'Spliceing spike' incorporated.And they are very usefull.
BUT....For Nets either,Mono ie.Gill type,or the far more robust Trawl type... and indeed smaller Nylon Rope, a MUCH beter option is the 'Net Slasher' I used to carry when Diveing,it is designed for the job,and incorperates a fixed angled Surgical Steel blade that will whip through Mono...and get through the bigger stuff with a little effort.You can carry spare blades which ensure it is always 'Ready to Rock'

FWIW, Leathermans rust like buggery in seawater.

We call them "line cutters" in the US. Good for slicing away clothing in case you need to get at wounds and such as well. Identical things are sold for cutting seatbelts in rescue situations (though you'd have to verify it's made of stainless.)

I agree. I quite like a good knife myself. I came across this site, was a bit dubious at first, but have ordered a couple of things from them and they've done 'exactly what they said on the tin'. Knives at not big prices lol.

May be worth a shoofty?: Folding Knives, Hunting Knives, and Fixed Blade Outdoor Knives at Discount Prices

All the best
