A Safer Cutting Tool
Open faced diving knives are notoriously dangerous, making them generally unsuitable in response to an emergency situation. TheTRILOBITE‘s custom ergonomic design provides a level of protection, while still delivering an easy, clean and efficient cut, making it the perfect emergency cutting tool.
The Sharpest Cut – Every Time
The ergonomically patented design uses a longer section of the cutting edge, prolonging the integrity of the blade by dispersing the erosion. As the line is pushed onto the blade by the frame of the tool, the cut is much more stable, which not only provides a much cleaner splice, but helps the blade retain it’s edge. Other “closed” cutting tools have one pivotal stress point on the cutting surface which can quickly corrode and weaken.
Normal “marine grade” stainless steel, in terms of diving knives, is generally the name given to 420 grade stainless steel, also known as “cutlery grade”. While it has a good corrosion capacity in water, it does not have such a good capacity to hold a sharp edge. Titanium can not create as sharp an edge as stainless steel. The grade of stainless steel used in the EEZYCUT TRILOBITE (440a) is known for its capacity to hold an extremely sharp edge, while having very good corrosive qualities. When the blade loses its edge or starts to corrode, you can easily put a new blade in, and yet again have the sharpest, cleanest cut in the water. Washing in fresh water after diving is recommended for all stainless steel knives and blades. All stainless steel which is used in salt water needs to be treated with care. Carefully coating any stainless steel blade in normal divers silicone grease prior to salt water usage significantly prolongs the life of the blade.
EEZYCUT only recommend EEZYCUT blades. Most carpet blades are thicker, and do not fit the TRILOBITE.
The “WOW” factor that users experience when they first use the TRILOBITEis a reflection of it’s unique and incredibly efficient cutting mechanism.
The replaceable blades allow the user to always have the sharpest machined edge, just when they need it most. Nothing is as sharp as a machined edge, which means the sharpness of most open faced knives deteriorate in their effectiveness from the moment of purchase. Replacement blades with a machined edge make sense.
The double-sided design means that it can be deployed more efficiently in a variety of situations, with less fiddling around. It also provides a level of redundancy.
The EEZYCUT TRILOBITE has two sides, and so it has REDUNDANCY built into it’s design, but nothing can replace the true redundant safety feature of two completely independent E.C.T.’s. The TRILOBITE‘s size and effectiveness fits in easily to any inventory of cutting tools, or for carrying multiple TRILOBITES.
In the pocket, on the harness, or even on the wrist for effortless access.
The TRILOBITE‘s compact form factor makes it easy to use in tight or complex spaces.
- The Wrist Pouch is designed to fit comfortably around your gauge, up to 1.5 inches wide (4.25cm). This provides excellent accessibility in a whole range of potential situations. It is also ideal as a pouch option for those who anticipate much usage or for those on working projects. Please note that this is designed to be worn over neoprene, dry suits, and other garments. The pouch is not designed to be worn against the skin. The pouch can also be worn on any 1.5 inch wide utility belt. The pouch fits neatly against the wrist, and does not extrude.
The Harness Pouch is designed to slide onto any 2 to 2.5 inch wide webbing for a secure and comfortable fit. The tool fits inside the pouch with a very snug fit. The harness pouch is made of 100% nylon webbing.
The harness pouch can also act as a wrist pouch for very large gauge straps, such as trimix computers.
The Shoulder/Flexi Pouch is designed for flexibility and greater accessibility options, wrapping easily around webbing, backpack straps etc. 3 1/2 inches in length, and made of 3mm neoprene. An excellent option for those who have preassembled equipment, and do not wish to go through the trouble of disassembling it. Provides a neat seal around any 2 – 2.5 inch wide webbing. The flexi pouch can be entered into from either side, which allows for greater ventilation. It can fit on either the shoulder or on the waist with little to no fuss.
