Spyderco Tusk
I am an avid sailor on small craft, so I find this tool very useful. The Marlinspike is the best I've ever worked with. The small blade is impervious to saltwater corrosion, yet very sharp. It appears small, but it really is all I can imagine as a companion to the Marlinspike. The engineering and design of this pocket knife are the best I have owned. The blade borrows from the Chris Reeve liner lock but is better finished. The ball bearing lock is a modern marvel. The price may cause pause, but once you get this in your hand, use, and examine it, you'll know you have a bargain. There are not any flaws in this knife in terms of quality, design, and utility.

Perfect sailor's knife
Perfect for loosening knots, has 2 shackle keys and the right size and shape blade for cutting through even the toughest line. The ultimate sailor's knife for those with real marlinespike skills.

Great Mariners Knife
This is excellent for those working in boats or near the sea. The anti corrosion properties are superb and the marlin spike works really well. It fits perfectly in the hand in both knife or spike mode. I have a couple of other Spiderco knives bought from new and were razor sharp. The only fault I found with this knife was that out of the box new its edge was what can only be described as "blunt" and it needed sharpening. A bit of a surprise as the knife is one of there more expensive folders. Still if you can sharpen a blade its not a problem - I can!

poking around
This is an interesting knife. I was just surprised how small the blade is. The spike totally dominates it. The blade is much smaller as compared to Delica although the handle length is about the same. The quality is good as you would expect from Spyderco. The frame lock is at 45-50%. There is no steel insert on the frame lock, such as found on some other Spydercos. But the detent ball seems to be ceramic. The handle feels a bit too thick at the end. And there is no jimping on the thumb ramp or finger choil. Lately I've been interested in the knives that have an extra tool for prying and poking and this knife fits the purpose. And it won't rust. Sweet. Love it's unique design.

Solid knife (slightly over priced)
Im an avid angler with failing sight and increasing arthritis . The two most useful tools for everyday use is a knife and a marlin spike. This Spyderco Tusk is extremely well built. The Marlin Spike has helped me in frustrating situations by either undoing tiny fishing knots to untying large anchor rope or tie down lines from hauling items in truck or utility trailers. I love this knife because of the strong durable material and the blade is awesome. The size would be perfect except for the width. It takes up the pocket opening space making it difficult to get keys, phone etc in pocket without scraping your hand.. other than that for me its the perfect knife..
