Every trip leader and experienced paddler should carry a knife. Lines and ropes can become easily tangled in strong currents (especially where tree branches are involved!) and from there it's only a short step to someone being dragged under or trapped. We recommend either this folding knife from Typhoon or this one from Whitby. Both are easy to open with one hand, have a locking blade and basic rescue features and at such a low price, there's no reason not to carry one!

We've also got a folding saw from Whitby, for dealing with pesky branches and logs and there are some good rescue knives and tools in the relevent section of Tools and Lighting the Outdoor Gear Portal.
