The AQUATEC Raptor Dive knife is perfect for diving, camping, and survival. The silhouetted one-piece dive/activity knife is getting more and more popular. The advantages of this type of one-piece knife blade is its thin profile and less weight to make it more portable, but the drawback is that it is difficult and awkward to hold. The Raptor Dive Knife has solved this problem by having an ergonomically shaped handle with a thin plastic insert to give the handle a very comfortable feel.
Quickdraw and Reinsert:
AQUATEC Raptor Dive Knives special design of its quick release and lock mechanism which is located on the top portion of the sheath can be accessed easily and operated by a single hand. Simply push the button to draw the knife, and push the knife all the way down when reinsert. A click can be heard if the knife is completely locked.
The AQUATEC Raptor Dive knife comes with a complete set of mounting hardware:
- The hard sheath has a positive click lock that prevents the knife from being removed until you depress the release.
- It has a mounting on the back of the sheath to which you can attach any of the mounting accessories that come with it.
- There is a hose clamp that will allow you to attach it to your console hose.
- There is a plastic plate that will allow you to attach it to any flat surface on your BCD, such as a strap or pocket flap.
- There is a belt clip that will allow you to attach it either vertically or horizontally to any strap.
- It comes with stainless screws that allow you to attach the various accessories.
- The main differences will be that the stainless model will be heavier and will require that you keep it clean after use to prevent corrosion. The stainless model was made of high carbon steel to ensure an extremely sharp edge.

Very good knife, I bought in conjunction with the leg/arm strap, it’s turned into a good set up.
Great service ordering from here. Quick and easy, brilliant team and very fast delivery. I would definitely recommend and I would order from here again.
Competitive pricing, straightforward online ordering and super fast delivery. I have noted all this for future purchases.
I was looking for a knife that is small and that would help me if I ever got in any trouble with line and ropes whilst snorkelling. I’m far from a professional snorkeler but I do enjoy searching for bits and bobs in the sea. So far, in the few weeks that I’ve owned it this knife has done just fine, I haven’t lost it and it isn’t showing any signs of erosion. I seen in the description that it was 3.15 inches long on the blade and I thought I’d take a gamble and get the tip less version and that it would sit just under 3 inches, which it did. I went for the tip less version as I thought the only thing I’m likely to stab out there is myself re sheathing it. The first time I used it under water I wasn’t sure if I’d heard the click that happens when I sheath it but with a little tug I knew that it was in solid. I have quite large hands and I wear gloves and the knife fits in my hand well and is usable
The only thing I would change is making the slits for putting a strap through wider and maybe extending the sheath behind the knife handle to accommodate a second strap, I find that it moves around a bit when I swim quite fast. I’m happy with this knife in general, it fits the budged and will do the job
If anything changes in the next few months hopefully I’ll be able to update this review but it does seem like a decent bit of kit
Really really good knife
Impressed with the quality on arrival
This was an easy process purchasing on line , slight delay with Royal Mail but it’s Christmas , but delivered safely and very happy with overall
Ordered a new Dive bag for upcoming holiday, was showing as in stock and 2 day delivery window so though great, have plenty time. Ordered late Thursday evening, but order was still not showing as shipped by Monday morning so was getting bit concerned, especially being up in Scotland. Phoned the store and the gentleman I spoke to was very helpful and actually got in touch with the courier whilst I was on the phone to arrange an urgent collection that morning/lunch time (and at no extra charge to myself). Bag arrived the next day and worked great for my trip.
Bag itself is great, being only 5ft 1, I struggle with most dive bags but this one is perfect, not too wide and with extra grab handle on side it is much easier to lift on to the conveyer at the airport etc than my last one. Large enough to put my weeks clothes inside and still within the 23Kg allowance (just) with room to spare, if needed. Came back from first trip to Egypt with no real damage, just couple of scratches.
Ordered item arrived in good time and expected. No issues. Will use again.
The Royal Mail were hopeless with delivery. Waterworld Sports sorted this out, offering to send a replacement on next day delivery. This was really helpful as I needed my mask in a hurry!
First experience with Waterworld Sports but it's been great, fantastic pricing, quick delivery and the the bag came in perfect condition, 10/10 would recommend and use again
Brilliant personal service.
Russell selected several styles of Wet suits for me to try and was not satisfied until I had the perfect fit.
No rush or sales pressure, it is a truly unique shopping experience.
Fast delivery. Would definitely recommend
Great company to order from would use again I’m a starter diver wanting to get bits of kit from time to time
New bag arrived super quick in good packaging. Really happy with the bag, loads of useful pockets and love that it has weels and Backpack straps. Seems good quality and at a very good price. Thank you!
Super fast delivery

Great pool and open water sessions with Phil. Confident in his training and knowledge. He has a friendly approach with a calm structured teaching style. Definitely recommended
Received promptly. Great communications and pre-purchase advice. Good quality dive mask at an affordable price. My prescription is 2.25 but the 1.75 was more than adequate underwater. Highly recommended seller.
Easy to order and swift delivery , thank you 👍
As a UK plus size 22 female not easy to find appropriate fitting female clothing for cold water swimming. Hence I've turn to men’s rash tops. Anyway I purchased an XXL-3XXL and it fits nicely. Obviously it’s a man physique fit but it’s fine. The ladies version does not go to bigger sizes. Maybe a thought moving forward Thank you
