great must have and way better than Pilot knife
I have/used a NRS full size pilot knife for several years. Needless to say, I would scrape into, especially during re-entrys since I keep it attached to my PFD and it sticks out too much. I also chipped the blade and will most likely return it to NRS. the co-Pilot on the other hand is much smaller, better steel construction, metal clamp where the blade connects to the sheath, and does everything the Pilot does. THe smaller size alone makes it perfect to attach to a PFD and won't get in the way of your paddle swing or jab you as you're trying to climb back into your boat. It's a re-engineered much smaller, better built, and less obtrusive pilot knife that no kayaker should be without.

Necessary tool in a small package
A sharp blade that's easy to access on your PFD might just one day save your life, which is why I wear mine every time I go out. I reserve my NSR Co-Pilot for emergency tasks, so I do not utilize it regularly as a utility tool, but it is light-weight, unobtrusive, and the sheath is very secure yet offers fast intuitive access. I've gone through countless wet exits/entries while canoeing and kayaking as well as swiftwater and whitewater training exercises and this tool has never gotten in my way nor accidentally released from the sheath. It also remains sharp and is still stain/rust free. I'd recommend this knife without hesitation.
