Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Oceanic Scorpion Dive Knife Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Oceanic Scorpion Dive Knife Review Posted in: Below $100, Dive Knives

Oceanic’s Scorpion is a multi-tool of a dive knife that is both cheap and compact. The 4 1/2-inch (11.4 cm) blade is made from 304 stainless steel, the most widely used of the stainless steel types. The blade has a standard edge with a pointed tip, and on the back of the blade is a wicked-looking serrated edge and a line cutter. A hammer stud on the pommel rounds out the Scorpion’s features. The knife comes with a fairly basic locking sheath and a pair of leg straps.

These features make the Scorpion a well-rounded knife that is semi-resistant to corrosion. 304-grade stainless steel is not the most rust-proof metal out there, but it should remain rust-free so long as it is thoroughly rinsed in freshwater after dives, and receives the odd oiling. Where the Oceanic Scorpion is a big winner is in the pocketbook, as this capable knife is usually priced around $30.

Average Price: $30
