Blunt tips are less prone to break which makes them more durable when digging out something or cutting. Blunt tips are less likely to puncture your BC too which makes them a lot safer.

What are the advantages to buying a titanium diving knife?


Titanium contains no carbon therefore it will not rust as near as quickly as stainless steel and they almost certainly are corrosion resistant, titanium is also a lot stronger than stainless steel knives and they require almost zero maintenance.

How should I care for my stainless steel dive knife so it doesnt go rusty?


. Stainless Steel contains high carbon traces for strengthening, they will almost certainly rust. To ensure that you care for your knife you should rinse it well with fresh water after a dive and allow it to dry naturally outside of its sheath, you can also apply some oil to the blade from time to time, and this will preserve your knife for longer.

When buying a dive knife, should I get one with a serrated edge or a straight edge?


Serrated edges are used for cutting natural fibers such as rope and kelp and can be used with a sawing motion. The straight edge knives are better for cutting plastic, fishing line and nylon rope. You can get knives with a serrated and straight edge so you would be better to get one of these.

What is the most practical size dive knife?




The best sized dive
knife is a medium sized knife with a blade measuring about 4-5 inches. The
medium size dive knives are better because they are about the right size to
strap to your arm of leg and have a big enough handle that can be gripped easy
with gloves on.

How do you take out the mesh filter of a classixx electronic dishwasher. The filter comes out easily but i cannot take out the mesh filter and tray to check if something is lodged in drain


Hi,

Just slip something flat and blunt under the edge and lever it out gently. A table knife will do it, but I generally use something wider, e.g. a scraper as pictured below.

Once you've removed the mesh screen, the second filter simply lifts out.

Apologies for the state of this washer. It's an old one I dismantled for instructional purposes!

Hope this helps. If you can't find the cause of the problem and need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric
