Z Knife


The Dive Rite z-knife is the cutting tool that every diver should carry. Sharper than a standard dive knife, the z-knife uses a 420 surgical grade stainless steel blade to cut thru braided line, monofilament, or any other line entanglement. The z-knife fits securely into a 4 ½” x 2 ½” (11.4cm x 6.4cm) nylon pouch protecting the blade, and uses a Velcro lanyard to prevent the z-knife from accidentally deploying. The pouch is equipped with 2 Velcro straps, allowing it to be mounted horizontally or vertically on webbing up to 2-inches (5.08 cm) wide.

NOTE: The z-knife and pouch must be rinsed with fresh water and allowed to air dry after use to prevent corrosion to the blade. Corrosion / rusting is not covered under warranty.
