Safety Knife?

I know this subject has been done before, but I'm looking for a Safety Knife that has a tube friendly rounded end and can be stored in a 5" pouch that comes on a pair of Musto Sallopets, or alternatively I could remove the pouch and go for a small fixed blade.

I'm not knife crazy so it has to be a safe usable tool to use possibly in an emergency at sea to cut rope etc.

I would like my purchase to be a responsible one so any advice would be welcome.

So far I have found this:

Thanks, looking at the link I posted above the blade is over 3" so I guess it is not within the law.

So looking at the Leatherman page I think this one looks ok and it floats too:

I may be out of date, can you not carry a knife over 3" so long as you have a good reason? Wearing boaty gear, doing boaty things ought to be a good one.

We do a folding floating knife with a round tip that has an awesome serrated blade, more than capable of clearing props etc.

But if I tie up to a pontoon and go into a pub for lunch do I still have a good reason to carry it?

Do you have a pic or any details of your floating knife?

Thanks

We have one of these cable-tied to the drivers backrest for easy access.

We tend to use Gerber EZ-Out Rescue knifes for personal carry knifes.
