THESE ARE 2NDS, MEANING THEY HAVE BEEN USED, REFURBISHED AND STAMPED WITH A NUMBER "2" ON THE FRONT OF THE HANDLE. THEY ARE IN PERFECT USING CONDITION.
The Mk 3 MOD 0 was designed primarily to be used as a tool and this is evident by the features of the knife. Their is a striking butt that can be used for hammering, a serrated saw edge on the the spine, as well the ability to pry with the thickness of the blade. The knife also features a clip point with a very up-swept tip. Since this is an issued knife used for diving; I believe they chose 440 Stainless Steel for two reasons. One being somewhat corrosive resistant and the other being its a cost effective metal to mass produce. Another benefit would be the simplicity of sharpening in the field. The Black Oxide finish would also facilitate in protecting the blade from rusting.
