I actually don't use this as a dive knife. I use it when I'm doing tree work...mostly thinning and clearing for wildland fire prevention. This is a tough knife that has been exposed to some harsh work. The yellow scales are excellwnt for making sure I don't lose it. The lock up is really solid and reliable. The blade doesn't corrode, it's been through a lot of abuse.. blade, action, liner.... all as good as new.
