This knife is used exclusively by U.S. Naval Forces.
Ontario Knife Company has produced the following knives for many decades and all have seen combat with U.S. armed forces. Needless to say, these veteran blades are not in the business of giving quarter.
A Great outdoor knife. The blade retains a sharp edge after extended use. It's surprisingly light, but tough. There were slight imperfections on the handle that I had to file and a slight gap between the quillon and hilt top where dirt collects. A little filler and it wasn't a problem. That said, I highly recommend this knife. (a steroid version of the Seal Pup)
The knife was delivered on May 7th. Upon delivery I realized that the knife was defective and reached out to customer service for replacement. Today is May 21st and the knife hasn’t been replaced yet. It is ridiculous that it takes the company that works with the US government more than 2 weeks to replace a defective product.
Shame on you!
The Mark 3 MOD 0 knife and sheath: 1) has a sharpened and clip point of one side of the blade; 2) has a saw on the other side of the blade; 3) has a hand guard that prevents the hand from going forward on to the blade in a stabbing motion as well as the object from coming on to the hand; 4) a butt cap that resembles a hammer's face and can be used for such; and 5) by far the best sheath for holding a knife in place, one can without the snap in place and in a pitching motion throwing forward but holding onto the sheath not dislodge the knife from the sheath.
