Not exactly a boat knife but this has been my daily carry for the past maybe 15 years. Very sharp, has a clip on the opposite side, and opens and closes with one hand. The lock release takes a bit of getting used to, but it has probably kept me from hurting myself.

I love those. The carbon steel takes a wicked edge, the parkerizing does a good job of preventing rust, and it's tough enough to use as a prybar in a pinch. My stepmom likes to trail ride horses solo and asked me to recommend a good all-around knife for her. I just sent her this one. It hurt to give it up but I feel good that it's in her pack.

I probably should dig up my grandfather’s ww2 navy knife and give it a good sharpening.

My normal knives i.e. my cooking knives chefs knives and fillet knives all go to a professional knife  sharpener 
with that said maybe you can find a professional sharpener near you and ask him if you could get some tips.  
i do all my knives with a spyderco  kit...   i get them plenty sharp....   it weeeellll cut..

i have a couple of emerson folders...  I don't carry them anymore...   I have a kershaw leek that i carry now,  light and pointy, holds a good edge..

i have a knife my grandfather, a polish butcher, made...    that'll get passed down to the next relative..

I forgot about this until I opened this thread.  A bunch of us were on a camping trip in high school.  One of the guys brought this.  He needed a couple of bucks so I bought it from him. 

It's a Modelo Argentino 1891, German-made Argentine bayonet for a mauser bolt action rifle.  Part of the stamp was scratched off when I bought it.  Why, I can only speculate.

The case is also stamped with P1462

Let’s stick with bayonets as she has a few of them

The first one here is a US Springfield model 1819 musket bayonet that was used in the battle of Gettysburg

The next One is a Hungarian made bayonet from the Cold War used on an AK 47

On left: ‘Hori-Hori’ garden tool/knife.   Best all-around bladed tool I have.   In 316 stainless from Nisaku Co. Japan.

Lan-Cay M9.   Always have a couple of these around.   Have several German surplus as well.  Basic dude stuff.

If you've got limited volume and weight available for supplies, there's a lot to be said for a multipurpose tool that can cut, dig, and saw.
