If you want to part a line there is always your knife. Line is cheap, athough spears are not and nor are specialist tips, but sometimes you lose them as that is just part of spearfishing. After a big trip quite a few shafts can be left on the bottom as escapees get munched up or succumb in unknown locations after a brief flight to freedom. Have found a number of shafts on the bottom, but never my own!
