From the ever-popular line of Myerchin rigging knives comes the Myerchin P300 Sailors Tool. This knife offers tremendous value and functionality with its serrated blade, a marlin spike, and pliers. All three are constructed of 440C stainless which is known for its high corrosion resistance and strength.
For safety, the blade and spike lock in place -- the double lock will secure the blade, the spike or both at the same time. Designed for one handed opening. Pliers come in handy onboard in many applications such as opening shackles and offers just enough jaw space and expansion without being too cumbersome.
Additional features include the one-hand opening blade, tether loop, and belt clip. Each knife comes with a durable nylon sheath for added protection from harsh marine environments.
Lightweight aluminum handle. Full two-year warranty from Myerchin.

- Good tool, but I like the Gill tool better. Review by David
I have this Myerchin P300 Sailor's Tool and the Gill Marine Tool. Both are pretty good. The Myerchin spike opens a little too easily, but it does lock open and you have a plier head. The Myerchin is a nifty design, but if If I need pliers, I'll just go below and get some pliers. The spike on the Gill Tool doesn't lock, but the other two blades do lock open. I especially like the hook knife/line cutter on the Gill. The Myerchin has a clip attached to it.The Gill comes with a nylon case. The clip works great, it is secure, but still easy to deploy. The Gill nylon case is really secure... so much that it is difficult to remove the knife. I added lock-tite to the clip screws to keep them from backing out and that problem was solved. I like the grippy texture on the Gill better than the P300 and I expect the Gill will have better long term corrosion resistance. On the boat, I carry the Gill and I keep the Myerchin in my gear bag as a backup. I like 'em both, but if I had to choose, then I would get the Gill.

- Poor clip Review by Sean
I own the red version of this knife. I have had to tighten the screws that keep the belt clip fastened at least once and they are loose again. Also knife is showing rust in places.
