Freedivers gear order and why I need a knife

I am placing an order for Freedivers spearfishing gear on Friday. Anyone near PE wanting any items please let me know ASAP as this way you get a saving on postage as it comes in one package.

There are the new Freedivers Fins:


and Gloves:


As well as a whole range of products from suits to knives!!!

That reminds me - I must get a knife - some time back Mark and I were diving the Kapodistrias - I took a bronze bream deep under a plate and could not extract it on the first dive. Next dive down in the frigid water that drained my brain capacity which is somewhat lacking as I am one of a twin and we had to share in the womb.
I tried to free the spear - the fish had worked its way up the line toward teh gun and out the cave. I went down and tried to loosen the spear. Could not reach it in the small hole at the back of the cave in the cavern in the hold..... On my way out the fish worked its way back down the line and fouled around my snorkel at teh entrance of the cave. I reached up to loosen the line but could not get it loose. SO I had bonded with the Kapodistrias but did not care to join her fate. I realized there was potential for a bugger-up and calmed down trying to feel the line and free it - no go. I pulled off my mask and snorkel and headed "blindly" up kicking the reel's line off my fins.
Mark was off in the distance and I swam back to the boat and busied myself gutting the fish we had taken.
Mark looked back and rated me a softie till he was informed that my mask, snorkel, gun and fish were still bonding with the Kapodistrias. SO a low profile knife will be my own addition to my gear.
