I am with the titanium and serrated edge.
It should work well.

Besides by the time it gets blunt, its normally lost.

The titanium knifes work great but are expensive to replace. Before I moved to Titanium I would spry my dive knifes down with a clear lacquer(spelling?) paint bought at any hardware store and it works great. Provides a good protective coating but doesn’t hinder the cutting edge and doesn’t leave an oily residue all over everything.

Just polish your A2 knife till it's like a mirror.

The knife probably isnt rusting, could be impurites on the surface and cleans off. Diving knifes do this also. I usually cover mine in a thin layer of silicon grease or vasaline, it does the job.

Its still a good knife and the blunt end to useful.

I posted some pics last week in the other knife thread, but this knife has been designed specifically for use with inflatable boats. The combination of a blunt rounded tip and inset concave blade the chances of accidentally slashing a pontoon are considerably less than with any other blunt tipped river knife.
