Charles Currey (February 26, 1916 – May 10, 2010) was a British sailor who won a silver medal in the Finn class at the 1952 Summer Olympics.

Currey was born into a family of sailors. He had to give up an anticipated career in the British Navy due to illness, and instead became a renowned sailor and boatbuilder.

At the start of World War II he was accepted into the Royal Naval Reserve, eventually being promoted to lieutenant commander and appointed captain of a gunboat patrolling the English Channel. He then returned to boat building and became an expert on the Firefly boat.

Captain Charles Currey, CBE, RN, established his company in 1946 by redesigning the Royal Navy knife and making it out of stainless steel so it won’t corrode. Thus it became more suitable for use by both dinghies and boaters 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.
