NRS designed its Pilot Knife specifically for freshwater boaters and rescue professionals due to its extreme convenience in the water world. The stainless steel blade features a blunt tip so you don't accidentally puncture your boat or yourself, and the edge has smooth and serrated sections to help you cut through a variety of objects. NRS added a rust resistant coating to the blade to keep it shiny and sharp for a long time. The glass reinforced polypropylene handle utilizes a TPR over mold to give you a good grip, and it features a rope cutting hook, a glass breaking point at the end, a bottle opener, and a square hole that doubles as a valve wrench for oxygen tanks. NRS made the sheath out of glass reinforced nylon to keep it strong, and two release mechanisms prevent the blade from falling out while you paddle. The sheath attaches to PFD lash tabs so you can always access it.
