ABOUT CAPTAIN CURREY
Over 70 years of world famous quality and dedication
ESTABLISHED IN 1946
Captain Charles Currey, CBE, RN, established his company in 1946 by redesigning the Royal Navy knife and making it in stainless steel so that it would not corrode. It therefore became more suitable for use by dinghy sailors and yachtsmen alike. As part of this redesign, Captain Currey invented the famous ‘Lockspike’ action and the patented ‘Shackle Opening Slot.’ Today the company continues to make the world famous Currey Lockspike knives, Rigging Tools and safety harness buckles.
