The Dive Rite Line Cutter is the cutting tool that every diver should carry. Sharper than a standard dive knife, the line cutter uses a 420-surgical grade stainless-steel blade that can easily cut-thru-braided line, monofilament, or any other line entanglement. Housed in a heavy-duty fiber reinforced nylon body, the blade is easily removed for cleaning and replacement. The line cutter fits securely into a 4.5" x 2.5" (11.4 cm x 6.4 cm) nylon pouch and uses a hook and loop lanyard to prevent the line cutter from accidentally deploying. The pouch is equipped with 2 hook and loop straps, allowing it to be mounted horizontally or vertically on webbing up to 2" (5.08 cm) wide. The line cutter weighs 1.8 oz. (51 g). The line cutter is designed with a hole in the body to provide a point to better grip the cutter, even for divers wearing gloves. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the line cutter and pouch and allow to air dry after each use.
