Sailing knives and using animated GIFs on Facebook

Posted By on September 25, 2014

I posted a question on a Facebook group today for liveaboard sailors regarding sailing knives using’s animated GIF to Facebook posting. I’m not sure how many other GIF hosting services are out there for Facebook but Giphy worked well.

HoffmanRichterKnifeThere are times on a rolling sailboat where using both hands to open a folding knife is not possible. The other hand may be needed to to hang on or to keep an something from getting away … like a mutineer [smiley]. I have a nice SS Myerchin folding knife with marlin spike, but it would be nice to have a sheepsfoot sailor’s knife that opens with one-hand like a tactical knife. Thoughts (see animated GIF below)?
