Kayak Fishing Knives by NRS

NRS Kayak Fishing Knives Knife Folding Fixed BladeNRS has been making kayak fishing knives for a few years. The selection has everything from folding to fixed blade, blunt tip to titanium blade. So outside of the price, how do you choose? I have used each of these knives and they all seem to have slightly different specialties, while all serving the same purpose, added safety on the water. This will be a longer article than normal but I want to put all the knives in one place and then if future additions to the collection come along, I can add to this one. Check out the specs and features below and for any of the knives I carry lashed on my PFD, I’ll mark that with an * beside it. They’ll be listed alphabetically.
