Is it weird no one has commented on this?

What question in particular do you have?
I don't even carry one of these anymore, I've gone to a multi-tool, a Leatherman Wave. I've spent a lot of times on boats and amazingly have never had to cut a line in anger--only when working on ropes. But I have had to tighten a screw or undo a shackle. A spike is nice if you're splicing laid line or undoing a knot but a good knot can usually be untied without it.
