So, oh wise one, mighty metalurgical guru, master of all things sharp and dangerous, could you share your wealth of knowledge and experience for the greater good?

I'm sure we'd all appreciate it, and be better armed in future.

A tip for de-rusting and preventing re-rusting.
Find a wine cork (shouldn't be difficult) and dip the end in some Vim scouring powder.
Rub all over the blade until the rust has gone. You can go for a high polish if you want but there is no need.
Something in the Vim will stop rust reforming for quite some time.
Repeat as required.
It use this on carbon steel kitchen knives and it works a treat.

There's always a need for a good bit of polishing.

Another thing to consider with any stainless steel is that it will pick up any steel if rubbed against - that will cause discolouration - rusting

Andy,

Sorry for not responding to this earlier. I think something along these lines would be an excellent choice for dealing with a variety of situations that may arise while boating. I would suggest it be carried on your belt, and in addition to (rather than in place of) a fixed bladed, blunt tipped emergency/rescue knife.

I've got one or two cheap leatherman knockoffs which have proven themselves to be quite handy at times, but are limited by their lack of quality. It can be very handy to have something on your person to deal with simple issues which may arise rather than fumbling around in the boat's toolbox.

I'm looking to purchase a high quality multitool, either one of the Leatherman models (either the Charge, Wave or Surge) or one of the Victorinox Swisstool models (either the Spirit or X) . I'll need to take a closer look at all of these at one of the local shops

Do you have the wave? If so how do you like it?

I have a leatherman, the price of it tho.
I am telling ya... go with the Titanium and have serrated edge.

As we are talking about knives does anyone know where I can get a good set of Japan Knives for cooking. They are made the same way as a Katana sword with the folding steel. Its for the kitchen. I have one thousand knives each as blunt as the last, I was going to turn them all into the Police as part of the amnesty over here to get rid of them...
