The Dakine isn't well-liked in the kitesurfing crowd, and that's what it's for.

Ditto. With double SS razor blades, I don't see how the Dakine knife would work any less effectively than any of the other kitesurfing knives I have seen (Especially kite lines. It'll rip through that no problem).

I have used it to cut my 3/8 (9mm) Hobie 18 mainsheet. Anything bigger than that would be a stretch. The Dakine blade is really just a secondary knife for me. If I have to use it there's likely something very wrong.
