    I bet this could be pretty sweet for SCUBA. I usually carry shears just in case I get snagged on something, but I have also carried a strap cutter from time to time. I would want to see how secure the clip could be attached to a BCD or an arm though…

      If you haven’t already done so, have a look at Benchmade’s other rescue tools. Their hooks are incredibly good cutters.

    @Adun +1 on checking out their other cutters, they make ones that are much smaller.

    Regarding the SOCP sheath, I like it a lot. I carry one offside in cargo pocket. I pulled off my clip and added some skateboard grip tape after the original rubber piece fell off. The sheath is well thought out, in my opinion and is effective.
