NRS Co-Pilot Review: If you’re spending any time near the river, it’s a really good idea to be carrying a knife. They have so many uses; from spreading peanut butter to getting out of a hairy situation in the water. It’s definitely one of those pieces of paddling gear that you’re really glad to have when you need it the most. One of the best knives to have with you is the NRS Co-Pilot knife. The name describes it perfectly well, it’s like your right hand man. It fits perfectly across the front of your PFD, coming in with a total length of 5 ¾”. The knife features a super grippy handle for worry free handling, a smooth and serrated edge, and importantly, a bottle opener. One of the best features of the knife is the easy one handed release and sheath (even while wearing gloves and mittens) which makes this knife a must-have river companion.
Also brand new from NRS is the Neko Knife. The compact, low-profile Neko knife gives you the same versatile performance as the popular Co-Pilot knife with a sleeker profile and a simple friction-release sheath. Includes smooth and serrated cutting edges, blunt safety tip and integrated bottle opener, plus a comfortable rubber grip!
