Anyone know how to get a hold of Sporasub's "snake" stilleto knife for spearfishing?

I've had the riffe forever, but have never cared for it or its sheath. any other spearos out there? what have you guys been using or what don't or do you like about what's out there on the market?

hi. i think what sort of knife u need depends on where you'll be diving and what it'll be used for. i use a heavy bladed knife that is 8 inches plus handle which is great for abalone and around the rocks because u cant kill it!! it can be cumbersome though. most of my mates use smaller knives with easy release systems, but beware a few have broken on large abalone:waterwork

happy spearing
I just saw the Sporasub Snake kinife on www.scubastore.com (DiveInn) for US$25. Gonna have to add quite a bit for shipping from Spain to the US though.

Hope that helps!!

got it!

thanks sickboy. i've been pulling my hair out trying to find it. not too easy when you're in the states.

and thanks daniel for the advice. i pretty much am using it specifically for piercing the skull of large fish.

later guys!
Personally, I feel like the smaller the knife the better and really liked the original Tekna knife. But now I can't find one, and can't even find Tekna. Did they go out of business? Get bought out? I see their lights and some of their newer knives on retail websties, but there doesn't seem to be any Tekna.com or anything anymore.

Hi Anderson,
I also have a riffe knife but have found that the blade is a little short. Esclapez has a nice knife that I'm thinking of getting. It has a long thin blade, looks to be about 6" long w/ serrations on one side and smooth on the other. It also has a place in the handle where you can put the end of your shaft if you get it stuck in a cave and twist it to free it. Ck w/ National Divers Mfg. or your local freediving/spearfishing shop(like they're on every corner). For what it's worth.
especially in colorado

my riffe's a POS. way too soft a metal. i love the sporasub's snake, though. goes through skulls like buttah! also, that zinc end cap is a great idea for that oxidation dilemma. i also see that picasso has something in a similar shape. you can get that sporasub at diveINN for $26! austins in miami(only store i know who carries it) sells it for $66. such a bahgain.

back to saving the world...
