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.

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 does an electric knife work?


The way the knife works is that it has two knife blades put together. These blades are serrated (notched). When the power is on, the blades move sideways and basically saw through whatever they are cutting.

Does the back cover snap-on/off or screw on/off? I don't see tabs for popping off.?


Although the cover is flatly closed and there's no tab/recessed area on the cover, you can still use a watchmaker's knife (looks like a Swiss Army knife but with case opener blade) or even use a Swiss Army knife to open it (pry off, particularly common in less expensive watch).
Be careful, don't try to use the point of the knife, use the blade instead.
Get under the rim and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.

If the cover is flat, no notches on it, that is a screw-back case. You need a case wrench (screw-back watch case opener) to open (unscrew) the cover. If you try to use a very small flat screw drive and tab (turn) the cover in counter-clockwise direction, be careful because it can cut your fingers.

Hope it helps.

How do you remove the back to replace the battery. Does the back unscrew or does it snap off.


if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in . Then you have to carefully force the knife inside and wiggle it up and down till it pops off. Be very careful you can cut yourself doing this or even damage the watch by slipping the blade inside and ruining the movement.

If it has a screw back you would see notches on the back of the case going around the diameter usually 6 or so notches. There you would need a special watch opener tool that fits into those holes and would unscrew it.

I would recommend taking it to a fast fix or batteryplus for about 7 dollars you can have them replace it. That way you can prevent yourself from ruining your watch or hurting yourself.

if you do open the watch up be careful not to touch the copper coil if you scratch that you will ruin the movement and need that replaced. if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in .

I have found a fossil watch model BG-2103. I cannot get the back off to change the battery, can you tell me how to get the back off and how much this watch cost.


mcdevito75 here, Look for any Notch in the cover that match a notch in the case, use a knife with a sharp blade and place the knife in the notch and with a slight twisting motion the cover should pop off. Depending on the age of the watch and the functions cost could be anywhere betwwen $25.00----$60.00 Fossil watches are also collectables.

Cannnot find notches in back of watch. I have a


If there are no notches on case back, your 3 point tool has no use. You need watchmakers knife (or pen knife) for opening case back. Use an eyeglass and carefully examine case back all the way around. You will find tiny groove ''lip''. This is exact point where to insert the blade and pry up. Rate me, plz.

Just purchased a Stanley FatMax 10-778 retractable knife. Cannot figure out how to load the blade for use.


1. Make sure the side lock is unlocked.
2. Push the thumb tab all the way to the front of the blade handle.
3. Insert the blade in the opening, you may notice two notches on the top side of the blade.
4. Press the small blade release button as you slide the blade into the knife. You may have to jiggle up and down to get the two notches on the blade fully into the handle.

If properly inserted, the exposed area of the blade should look very close to an equilateral triangle.

make sure both notches of the blade are inside the handle. They notch into the thumb lever.

good luck

WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE STANLEY SWIVEL LOCK UTILITY KNIFE AND REMOVE DULL BLADE. NOW i CAN'T GET THE NEW BLADE IN AND CLOSE THE KNIFE PROPERLY, WHAT'S THE TRICK?


If you use the wrong brand of blades, they won't let the knife shut all the way. The notch is cut slightly differently. The same is true for the Kobalt knife I just bought at Lowes. Get the Stanley blades that are right next to the knives - they are the only ones that work.

Sorry.

If you bought the Stanley blades, then I don't know what the problem is. Sorry for that too.
