Based on time-honored nautical conventions, the rigging knife from Best Made is a maritime essential for your adventures on the high seas. The heavy-duty knife boasts a 5.5" stainless steel blade and bridle leather sheath for protection. Attach it to your hip with its solid bronze snap hook and it's a pirate's life for you.

Your hand will fit naturally around the rosewood handle, unless of course your hand is a hook.
