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.

I own a titanium luminox and I have replaced the pins that attach the band to the watch it self twice. Where can I find Heavy Duty pins or something? Can I buy a repair kit to install the pins? Thanks in...

I used to have similar problems when I used to used leather (rigid) straps. I found that flexing the wrist used to pull the straps off the watch.

I got over the problem by using expanding bracelet. I have never had the problem since (30 years!).

Do I need a scuba regulator and if so, how do I know which one to buy?

"Because the scuba regulator is such a vital piece of gear many scuba divers choose to buy their own scuba regulator instead of renting one from the dive shop. When a scuba diver has used a few different scuba regulators, on numerous dives, he will notice that they all have slightly different ""action"" - some feel looser or tighter, some will deliver air more forcefully, others will have a slight ""suck"" to them. The goal of all regulators is the same: to deliver air on demand at ambient pressure. Comfort with a scuba regulator depends on how the diver breathes; which is different for everyone. Though a helpful clerk at the dive gear shop can recommend ""the best"" regulators, from the most respected manufacturers, in truth no one can tell you which regulator ""feels right"", except you. Sponsor Links [what's this?] As a novice scuba diver renting or borrowing equipment from a dive shop always take note of what scuba regulator you are using and whether you like how it feels. When you find the one which makes your breathing feel effortless remember its make and model. When you decide to buy your own scuba regulator you will know which one to get. When shopping for a scuba regulator here are some things to consider: See our choices for scuba regulators * Ergonomic design and easy to hold * A purge button which is easily pressed even when wearing 6mm neoprene gloves * External controls which let you make fine adjustments to air flow * Non-corroding metals like titanium or chromed brass * Diaphragm vs. piston mechanics. Many divers prefer diaphragm regulators for its smooth movement and its moving parts are less * Balanced vs. unbalanced regulators. Almost all regulators are balanced. Do not buy an unbalanced regulator. * Always buy new. Do not pick up a cheap second-hand regulator; it may be faulty or reconditioned * Look for a warranty * Swivel joints on the second stage offer improved ease of movement * Hose should be soft and flexible "
