“I think the need for a knife might be related to carelessness and low intelligence.”
The same thing could be said about the inability to operate a knife safely.
neither one of us has that data
(haVE that data?)
...but only one of us opened by commenting on others' use of a knife.
I can wear one on a lash tab on the inside of my PFD, when I feel it's advisable. Sort of like a tow rig, I don't always take it. In a vacuum, is it a hindrance? I suppose. So is a dry suit or clothing in general. IS it cheap insurance with remote consequences for me personally? Yes. Am I any more advanced than the average bear here? Not by any measure.
don’t cut yourself
I want a big rescue knife
Have you ever tried to cut a grapefruit or spread peanut butter with a little rescue knife? I’m thinking maybe a big dive knife might be a better option.
Any problems with long knife? Seem like it would be a lot more practical.
Does your Shorty attach to your PFD lash tab? No matter what I try, the clip will not fit.
