Holiday Gift Guide from SAIL

by SAIL Editors, Posted December 16, 2014
Once again, the editorial staff at SAIL magazine has been keeping an eye out all yearlong for bits of gear and other neat products that would make for great gifts during the holiday season.
When it comes to safety, working with rigging and completing everyday chores, knives have long been essential onboard tools. Here’s a selection of the best in the market.
If you’re looking for an outstanding, solid fixed-blade knife, check out Boye’s Cobalt Basic 3. Availabe with either a pointed or rounded tip, the knife is made of Boye Dendritic Cobalt
West Marine’s Performance Rigging Knife boasts a steel blade that is serrated along half its length, so it will easily cut through thick material and line. 
One serious piece of equipment for dedicated riggers. Its handle is made of black G10, and the steel is pro-grade German marine stainless, which is comparable to 440C steel
Years in the making, the new Tusk from renowned knife-maker Spyderco takes sailing-knife design to a point where engineering truly becomes art. Where to begin?
Boye’s Cobalt Folding Knife is ideal for “harsh, humid and wet environments,” and is a great overall knife that can be easily handled and maintained. 
Satisfy your winter sweet tooth with a box of Harbor Sweets’ new Salt & Ayre chocolate, enhanced with a variety of different spices.
