"The road was new to me, as roads always are, going back."
Every sailor longs for a Myerchin! The finest, toughest, safest and most durable of all folding rigging knives available for sailors the world over. Guaranteed for life - You will love this knife! It's been called "The BMW of folding Sailor's Knives!"

Choose either a full-smooth hawk's bill blade, or a three-quarter-serrated blade at $25.00 additional cost, (Both are hollow ground for sharpness.)

Insert A shows our hand-engraved bolster option, and Insert C shows the option "Fossil Walrus Oosik Ivory With Light Ivory Inlay For Scrimshaw." (also shown with engraved bolsters)

This knife is very easy to open when it's needed in a hurry - a large opening in the 3 1/2 inch blade replaces the nail nick - easy to grab and open! The blade, as well as the marlinspike has an independent locking mechanism. All stainless steel construction with a substantial stainless bail for a tether, as well as a shackle slot in the blade, (for when your fingers are tired or cold and just can't do the job by themselves!) means that your Myerchin can always be trusted to be there and ready when you need it with only a minimum of care.

This superb scrimshaw folding knife even comes with its own genuine leather belt sheath or soft zippered long-term storage case.

Open knife shown personalized with a power yacht's portrait. (Boat's name/logo on back)with Medium Light Fossil Walrus Ivory scales.

Fossil Ivory Color Charts

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
