Great seeing your smiling face Tony! I’ve worn a fixed blade somewhere easily accessible for many, many years whenever on/in the rivers, lakes and oceans and alway will because “stuff” just seems to happen. Like in a W. VA. New River Gorge white water canoe trip, flipped by my buddy in the front whom I didn’t know truly confused his right/left, even when not stressed. Really stinks when in the first decent rapid when I was controlling from the back with split second yells of “Right; Left, Left, Left”!!!! Boulder. Flipped.
Underwater nylon anchor rope (someone else’s) grabs & wraps one of my ankles. Sharp blade, rope cut and popped up to the surface.
BUT…..great photos, as always, Peter. Thanks.

What about a Cattleman/Yachtsman? You just have a very small & very slow Yacht!
Great adventure you had,
Capt. Chris

But then you’ll have to change the thread to “a little yachting”, Cap. Actually I’ll normally (about 8 outa’ 10) have my #8 Old Style hanging on me somewhere handy when I’m in/on/around fresh water. As Pappy has said it’s great for cutting the heads off of trout, smallmouth, snapping turtles (great stews), etc. AND, in stressful situations it’s kinda’ like YOUR Special, fantastic when potentially needing to cut both coming and going.
Which reminds me, I’m really NEEDING one of your Stanaback Specials if you can come up with one you can spare…….
