Mkv Deep Sea Diving Knife Desco:
This is a Special Edition DESCO MKV Deep Sea Diving KNIFE. # 60 of only 200 produced!
This is a handsome and traditional piece of equipment manufactured to rigid U.S. Navy specifications originally set down in the 1929 Hull Standard Plan Drawing and cherished by Navy and commercial divers throughout the world. It has a 7" stainless steel blade with a brass handle. The knife screws into the top 1/2" of the polished cast brass sheath using Acme threads which not only hold it securely in the sheath but also permit it to be easily and quickly removed. The knife edge not sharp as this is intended for display. The belt strap is top grain leather. It is as much sought after by collectors for its unique design and appearance as by divers for its utility underwater.
Probably the most useful tool of all is the US Navy Divers Knife (often erroneously referred to as a Mark V knife). This knife has a Brass cylindrical sheath, a threaded hilt which allows the knife to be screwed into the sheath, and a double edged non sharpened blade. The blade is Highly Polished Brass. The handle boldly displays the DESCO name.
