Purchased a knife/pry bar 30-35 years ago and have since lost it.
Would appreciate any info on the manufacturer so I can purchase again.
Blade length is important and as I remember it was 8-10 inches long.
It is used for digging.
Please see attached.
Appreciate any help

Welcome to KF, sadly i don't have your answer.

It appears to be something from the garden aspect, perhaps Garrett Wade might have one.

Otherwise there are many talented knife makers here on KF, they could whip one up pretty quick.

Welcome to the Forum.

It is a Dive Knife and the Tip is bent to pry Coral or Abalone or hatches of Wrecks.

I think the one You lost was a Wenoka.

I do not think it is made anymore.

You might Google "Dive Knives" and see if there is anything Close.

I think it is no longer legal to gather Coral and Abalone is very closely regulated.

It Seems that the Dive Knives offered today are more geared to Sport Divers so they are much smaller.

Hope this Helps.

Many thanks.
I remembered it being a Wenoka but could not find anything with the 8-10" blade.
Oh well....
Appreciate your reply

Try searching on eBay or Amazon for "Abalone Pry Bar." I remember having used one years ago like the one you have described. I looked through all my old dive gear but couldn't find it. Here's something simple that might work for you.

Many thanks for your suggestion.
I decided to go with the Burpee (of all things) Japanese digging tool from their web page.
Thanks again
