Based on the popular US Navy design from WW2, this knife features a brightly polished, razor sharp #440 Stainless Steel sheepsfoot blade and a marlinspike that locks open for safety. The grip is made of all-natural cattle bone, yielding a splendid patina and ensuring that no two knives are exactly alike. Can be scrimshawed.
This knife also features a stainless lanyard bail (which operates the marlinespike lock) and nickel-silver bolsters. The rivets and liner are solid brass. Measures 4.5" closed, 7.5" with blade open, and 10.25" with both the blade and the spike open.
The sheath is constructed of heavy black webbing with a velcro closure. It has a 2-way belt loop so the knife can be worn either horizontal or vertical. The leather pull tab makes it easy to grab the knife quickly, even in cold weather.
The Snapshackle Gear Strap / Key FOB:
The snapshackle Gear Strap / Key FOB can be attached to the knife, or used as a stand-alone accessory, or for clipping items to a ditty bag or seabag. Both the snapshackle (WLL 800#) and the split ring are #316 stainless steel so they can't rust and won't affect the ship's compass if used near the helm.
