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 clear Maple
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 upper edge of the knife blade
is cut with saw teeth while the lower edge is a conventional knife edge. 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.
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 blade. The knife itself is composed of four parts, the blade, the
Brass threaded hilt, the Maple handle, and the Brass handle nut. The blade is
tool grade Steel with asaw tooth on one side and cutting edge on the
other. The handle nut (or button nut) and hilt are machined from free cutting Brass.
The handle is clear Maple and dip coated with Spar varnish.
