The 735 pattern Schrade Mariner's Knife pre-dates the collapse of the company and subsequent buy-out by Taylor Brands. While the new 735RPB is a Taylor Brand copy of the original and is made in China, the word China does not appear anywhere on the knife. However the box does label the knife as Made in China. Don't let that worry you. With the exception of the model number stamped on the tang and the nicely done Ship's Wheel shield this knife is identical to the older versions in both style and quality.

On close inspection you will notice that this Rigger is more bulky than the Rough Rider or Colonial counterpart. I suspect this frame is based on a slightly older pattern than the Rough Rider. The bolster holding the marlin spike protrudes out to include the thickness of the marlin spike which gives this knife its bulkier appearance. The sheepfoot blade is shorter than the Rough Rider which means more of the blade fits within the handle when closed.

As with just about any rigger, there is a certain amount of wiggle with the marlin spike when in the closed position. This is almost expected as I've yet to own one that doesn't wiggle when closed. The wiggle is not present when opened and locked. The bail used to lock the spike is marked "push down to release spike". The spike has the traditional taper and is exceptional when it comes to picking lines and loosening knots.

The sheepfoot blade is razor sharp right out of the box and very functional. It's a little shorter and more slender than other Riggers but will get the job done just the same. I recommend it for lines under 5/8 in. thick but will cut thicker in a pinch.

The knife retails for slightly more than a Rough Rider and slightly less than the Colonial.

This is a great sailors knife. It looks really good and is sharp, well made, and fulfills its purpose. It is a lot bigger then the picture makes it look which is a good thing I think. The straight blade cuts rope very well, and the marlin spike also works well. The marlin spike is used to untie very tight or intricut knots. I would recomend this knife.

I've owned several marlin spike kives over the years and handled many others, even a few antiques, and having bought two of this model (one for me, one for a gift), this looks to be quite well made as well as attractive.

The overall tool might be made for a slightly smaller hand than some other bramds of the same type which I have seen, but the difference should not impact on a firm grip and the blade and spike both appear quite robust.

See my review of the Davis Instruments 1550 Standard Marlin Spike if you're considering that (disappointing, in my opinion) model.

Awesome!! The very first thing I have to say! The second is the picture(s), do not do it any justice! This is my second marlin spike,(my first is the S & W hawk bill), and WOW!. First off I was expecting a camping multi use type knife, not very big, functional but cheap feeling.... When you pull it out of the box, the weight alone tells you the quality. The blade is sharp out of the box, the spike is solid, and unremarkable. Very solid, sharp quality. The handle is a composite type material with a "whittling" type look, that is riveted, both strategically and fashionably. There is also a ships wheel inlay, it looks nice, but I would have liked a type of thumb grip instead.(No marlin spike has this, it's just something I would find usefull). The entire knife extended, with blade and spike, is 10". This is a good size bladed tool, it fits awesome in the palm of your hand, and used correctly is a sailors wet dream! I could go on and on, but $20.00 is a steal. Thumbs up to Schrade(Taylor), for something that is worth it's weight in gold!!!!!!!

This knife holds an edge well, is easy to sharpen after being abused and holds up to harsh use well.

The tool is a good one, as all have said in most of the critiques. Way back in the Coast Guard we were given Barlow's marlin knives. Schrade is a bit thinner - which is just fine. And being a new one, it works exactly how I would expect a $20 tool working. Positives: 1). The blade is as sharp as I need for today's synthetics and natural rope and is strong enough to chop a hook. 2). The spike seems (so far) to be a decent stainless. 3). The pommel and bolster seem strong and sturdy as does the scales and rivets. 4). Of course it's been wet - just fine, so far.
Negatives: 1). None yet - I'll let you know for sure.
Overall: a decent, well made tool for $20. And I'm a bit picky about $20.oo these days.

It looks Nautical. You could picture a whaleman in like 1830 using it.
That and the marlinspike on it is why I got it. Also I was not familiar with a lot of other nautical knives though. However, today, there are many new advantages in mechanisms, styling and functionality. I got this knife when I started marlinspike craft, and getting into nautical knots etc. But later I got a Myerchin P300 Sailors Tool Knife (actually 2, one to keep another place), because this blade does not lock and when you have a near accident or do of it closing on your fingers, you'll be sorry you did not cough up $15 more for a Myerchin or other locking knife. I mean the blade is fine, although no serration, other than no locking. the fact is it not real pointy is good for a boat. The spike does lock however, which makes no sense, as if I had to choose I'd have a locking blade. I thought the blade locked when I bought it. A Myerchin has both locking and instead of this shackle key (also the release for marlinspike) the Myerchin has a plier head for tightening shackles that works great and can do more than a simple shackle key. Myerchin has a curved marlinspike, sleek more modern look. So it just depends what you want and how much you are looking for in a marlinspike knife and how much you want to spend. I mean Myerchin is just one of many. Look them up here or World Knives in nautical section...must be a hundred choices. I mean I am not comparing a Antonini NAUTA Nautical Sailor's Rescue Knife and a Shrade since the former is a much higher price. But a Myerchin P300, though pointed, is a great boat knife for price just slightly more than this one and it's not so easy to find one with locking spike and blade in that range. I just wish had a non-pointed blade, I mean it is a sheepsfoot, but still end it sharp.
